Barbara Ronnquist of West Ashley said she would like to invite Golden Globe Award-winning actress Bette Midler, weatherman Al Roker and her mother to a dream dinner. “I have lived in Charleston for seven years and try to eat dinner out several times a year, mostly for special occasions or when friends visit,” she said. “These are the restaurants and foods that hang in my memory and have become my ‘go to places.’”

DREAM DINNER GUESTS: Her mother, Midler and Roker.

DRINK: Martini from Oak Steakhouse.

APPETIZER: Warm rosemary focaccia from Le Farfalle.

ENTREE: Grilled octopus from Oak Steakhouse. 

DESSERT: The Ultimate Coconut Cake from The Peninsula Grill. “I still try many new places when I feel a sense of adventure, but I appreciate having [these] old reliables.”
