As a Forbes Four Star and AAA Four Diamond anointed eatery — and perhaps most importantly, City Paper top 50 restaurant regular — Charleston Grill has been crushing the fine dining game for nearly three decades. Old dogs like this don’t need new tricks, but a special seasonal menu highlighting the bounty of summer? We’ll bite.


Exec chef Michelle Weaver is pumping out new apps and entrees featuring “sensational seafood and mouth-watering vegetables.”

New small plate additions include the requisite heirloom tomato salad with whipped feta, olives, capers, and a red wine vinaigrette and the Vichyssoise, a soup with leeks, onions, cream, fingerling potatoes, and escargot.

New entrees highlight fruits de mer and include the Branzino, a traditional Italian seafood dish with a  flaky and crisp white fish, heirloom tomatoes, and fennel salsa verde; the summer succotash and flounder with sauce vierge, corn, beans, and squash; and the linguine and crab with calabrian chili flakes, tomatoes, and uni butter.

For landlubbers who prefer more down-home leaning fare, there is the southern fried chicken livers plate, served over Parmesan grits with red eye gravy and chanterelles.
