Family all together and Southern dishes

Wendy Gates of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, said she would like to travel to Charleston for a dream dinner with her three children. Together, they would sip on cocktails and indulge in traditional Southern dishes like fried chicken and fried green tomatoes. “I love my time in Charleston. I love flying in for the day or weekend,” Gates said. “It is one of my favorite places to eat and feel the love.”

DREAM DINNER GUESTS: “My three grown kids, at the same time.”

DRINK: Flowertown Tea from Poogan’s Porch. “I love how Flowertown tea is for a good cause.”

APPETIZER: Fried green tomatoes from Magnolia’s. “The fried green tomato dish is exactly how it should be served [with the right] taste, texture and balance.”

ENTREE: Fried chicken from Virginia’s On King. “Virginia’s has the best fried chicken. Their limas and rice are fire, too.”

DESSERT: Lemon cake from Muse Restaurant and Wine Bar. “The limoncello lemon cake from Muse is refreshing and elegant.”
