The Most Decadent Dinner in Charleston

 For me, food is an experience. I love to eat, but won't eat something that I don't enjoy. After so much time without being able to enjoy a meal in a restaurant, it's a treat to celebrate and come together for a delightful meal. If you happen to be in Charleston, South Carolina like John and I recently were, you must make a reservation to go to Halls. 

When you mention that you're going to take a trip somewhere, people recommend sites of interest, hotels, and other activities, but without any doubt, the first recommendation that everyone had for us was to make a reservation at Halls.

We stayed in the Historic District, which is within a comfortable walking distance to the restaurant. We enjoyed good weather during our trip and took a leisurely stroll to and from the restaurant. Upon our arrival, the owner greeted us warmly. As the hostess led us up the beautiful staircase, we enjoyed the piano music and ambiance of the restaurant. The restaurant lends itself beautifully for any special occasion. 

After a celebratory toast, we took our time to explore the menu. Luckily, our server explained the multiple options and answered questions for us. The service is absolutely impeccable, from the person who refills the water, to the server; everyone makes the meal an enjoyable and delicious experience.

John decided to try the bone-in filet mignon with truffle butter, while I settled with the smaller grass-fed filet mignon with gorgonzola. At the recommendation of our server, we ordered half portions of the pepper jack creamed corn skilled and the loaded baked potato. The half portions were so generous that we couldn't finish them. I especially enjoyed the corn! The steaks were cooked to perfection and practically melted in our mouths. Without a doubt, it was the best meal that I have had in years. 

Difficult as it may be, try to save a little bit of space for some dessert. After all, dessert isn't for the stomach, it's for the soul.

The restaurant makes you feel right at home, but I recommend dressing up for the occasion. I wore a Lilly Pulitzer maxi dress with a matching Lele Sadoughi headband and paired it with some Gucci sandals. Most of the people in the restaurant were dressed in a similar manner. Although the restaurant is not uber formal, you may not feel comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans.

Much to my surprise, today I received a hand written note of appreciation and thanks for our visit. In this day and age, I appreciate and applaud such a kind gesture.

Tips for your visit: 
- Make reservations in advance on the restaurant website through Resy
- Come with a good appetite
- Enjoy a drink at the bar before or after your visit

I noticed that the restaurant offers brunch, so on our next trip to Charleston, we're going to plan to go to brunch.
