Whether you’re a local, or just visiting CHS for the weekend, you can now refer to this list for your must-experience eats. The storm has officially passed and restaurants are back in action– just in time for the Resy Hit List. You are where you eat.

1/Le Farfalle
2/Butcher & Bee
3/Little Jack’s Tavern
4/McCrady’s Tavern
5/Henrietta’s at The Dewberry
6/Lewis Barbecue
7/Xiao Bao Biscuit
8/167 Raw
9/Feathertop

1/Le Farfalle
Because, “[i]f Le Farfalle were a person, you’d want to be seen with her,” says Vanessa Wolf of the Charleston City Paper. The house made pastas are a triumph. And the meatballs. Oh, and the whipped ricotta, too. // King St Historic District. Book now at Le Farfalle.

2/Butcher & Bee 
Because the reboot wins. This bigger space uptown offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the mezzes are there. Order the whipped feta to start, and go home with a Phatty Cake. // NoMo. Book now at Butcher & Bee.

3/Little Jack’s Tavern
Because it’s, “a great steak house and so much more,” according to Hanna Raskin of The Post and Courier. A self-proclaimed “old school inspired joint,” serving the classics. The burger “for dessert” and garlic fries takes this restaurant home. // Westside. Book now at Little Jack’s Tavern.

4/McCrady’s Tavern
Because you’ve probably been back to McCrady’s Tavern already, but at the new McCrady’s chef Brock is making his own dreams come true. Via Instagram he calls the new tasting menu restaurant “happiness.” // French Quarter. (843) 577-0025.

5/Henrietta’s at The Dewberry
Because dishes like the roasted chicken, the duck confit salads, and the cocktails are all proper. But, this Southern brasserie is a real looker. // Mazyck-Wraggborough. (843) 872-9065.

6/Lewis Barbecue
Because pop-up with long lines has evolved into a storefront with longer lines. Are meats that make you moan a thing? // NoMo. (843) 805-9500.

7/Xiao Bao Biscuit
Because this classic CHS joint is everything you need, with Asian soul food served up on the reg. Xiao Bao Biscuit has Charleston craving cabbage pancakes okonomiyaki (Japanese for “what you like, grilled”). Optional add-ons are bacon, a yolky egg, and pork candy. Win, win, win. // Cannonborough/Elliotborough. No phone number.

8/167 Raw
Because who doesn’t love an oyster bar? In addition to ten different raw options, 167 Raw serves a crispy oyster basket, a tuna burger, and one of  the best lobster rolls in town. // Ansonborough. (843) 579-4997.

9/Feathertop
Because even though chef Damon Wise has left the building, there is nothing wrong with light dishes full of vegetables, plus local seafood and homemade pastas in a restored train depot. // Mazyck-Wraggborough. (843) 306-0101.
