The Resy Hit List: Where In Charleston You’ll Want to Eat in March 2024


There’s no question we hear more often: Where should I go eat? And while we at Resy know it’s an honor to be the friend who everyone asks for restaurant advice, we also know it’s a complicated task. That’s where the Resy Hit List comes in. 

We’ve designed it to be your essential resource for dining in and around Charleston: a monthly-updated (and newly expanded!) guide to the restaurants in that you won’t want to miss — tonight or any night.

Four Things In Charleston Not to Miss This Month

  • Commence Au Festival: Charleston Wine + Food hits the Holy City on Wed., March 6, running through the weekend, featuring local and visiting chefs, and highlighting wine and cocktails alike. If you’re lucky, you can still grab one of the few remaining tickets to signature events, like a Baijiu lunch from Beautiful South, or toast Coda del Pesce chef Ken Vedrinski at his tribute to his dearly departed Trattoria Lucca. Or check out the Culinary Village, a showcase extravaganza on the shores of the Cooper River in North Charleston.
  • Festival Adjacent: Can’t score Wine + Food Fest tickets? With all this culinary talent in Charleston, there’s plenty happening on the fringes, including special dinners at KulturaWild Common, and Costa. Or sharpen your palate with a wine lunch at Bistronomy, or aperitivo hour with a visiting wine maker at Renzo.
  • Inside Peek: Kicking off March 14, the Charleston Festival, hosted by the Historic Charleston Foundation, takes visitors behind the gates into historic locales, including several events highlighting local cultural touchstones, such as the city’s connection to Barbados rum production in the 17th century. Settle in for a design discussion with Ben and Kate Towill of Basic Kitchen and Sullivan’s Fish Camp. Or, sign up to learn a thing or two from the Cocktail Bandits.
  • Omakase Redux: Thoroughbred Club, one of the best cocktail lounges downtown, tucked into the lobby of the Charleston Place hotel, hosted its first omakase experience in late February, running through March 2, featuring visiting chef Shin Horiguchi’s sushi, nigiri, maki rolls, handrolls and more. Horiguchi returns with additional pop-ups slated for March 21 to April 2, and additional dates in June and October. Book the March dates here.
