Slightly North of Broad
192 East Bay Street, Charleston
It’s not possible to pick a favorite from the three outstanding restaurants where our group lunched during our sojourn in Charleston. But the low country bistro known as SNOB offers much to recommend it. Staff set up new tables quickly and expertly. Plated foods were works of art. Fresh produce banked the entrance to a busy open kitchen, a nod to the practice of using local ingredients. Service was outstanding and wait staff easily answered questions and knew the food.
Oh yes, the food!!!
Steamed Local Clams in a flavorful silky broth.
A side of spaghetti squash with tomatoes and greens. This dish accompanied one of the specials but when I ask if I might order it as a side, the kitchen served it up.
Chilled Shrimp Salad with Cider Vinaigrette.
Blue Crab Salad Plate with Fruit and Toast Points.
One of our group at another table testified to the amazing flavors of the Shrimp and Grits with house sausage and country ham.
Just baked cornbread sticks and butter perfectly matched out food.
This place was cozy and inviting, busy with a brisk lunch crowd. My advice: when you are in town, don’t miss this place!
