Charleston游记

Charleston游记

南卡Charleston,美国南方著名的沿海小城;和New Orleans一样有French Quarter,但其实并没有被法国殖民过;有个绰号叫The Holy City,因为这里数百年来一直崇尚宗教信仰自由,每平方英里的各式教堂密度为全美第一;这里的饮食文化代表了整个美国南方,CNN记录片“Parts Unknown”里头有一集Anthony Bourdain就来到Charleston,主要去了两家最具代表性的餐厅 – Fig和Husk。

如果你对去Charleston感兴趣,尚在计划阶段的话,建议可以在官方旅游网站要一本免费邮寄到家的画册,另外参考我的一点经验,就可以啦!

另外,可以考虑第一晚找间airbnb上super host的房子住,super host一般会很乐意给很多local tips,我们的host就给我开了一大串的餐馆建议:

  • Husk/ The Bar at Husk

This is the famous chef Sean Brock’s restaurant located in an old Charleston home on Queen Street. Farm to fork dishes. Sit on the porch if able. Supper reservations necessary. The bar next door is in a gorgeous old carriage house, great for a pre-dinner drink!

  • FIG

Acronym for Food Is Good. I hear people say all the time this is the best restaurant in town. It’s difficult to get a reservation sooner than 2 weeks out.

  • The Ordinary

Inside of an old Charleston bank. You can still see the giant vault from its pre-restaurant days when you walk in. Incredible oyster platters and seafood dishes. Same owner as FIG.

  • 1 Broad

Gorgeous, antebellum building, now a bakery and coffee spot in the heart of the city that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The large shelf behind the bar has charred spots from explosions during the Civil War. Pro-tip: watch the sunrise over The Battery then have breakfast at 1 Broad.

  • The Watch

In a new hotel called The Restoration with a great view of the city. Ask to sit water-side.

  • 167 Raw

Another top-notch seafood restaurant known for their mouth-watering lobster roll. They have a famous fish market in Nantucket where they source much of their seafood.

  • Zero George

Bed & Breakfast and restaurant. It’s quaint, beautiful, and inside a classic Charleston “single house,” a style you’ll become very familiar with as you walk around the city.

  • Basic Kitchen

new to town and we love it! The food is very healthy and simple. Highly recommend for lunch.

  • Leon’s Oyster Shop

Upper King Street (maybe a 25-minute walk from this historic district). This place has great vibes and fits every mood. You can get an all-star kale-salad (my favorite), their famous chicken sandwich, a whole grilled fish or even a soft-serve vanilla ice cream cone.

  • Bar Normandy

Recently named one of the best restaurants in America by Bon Appetite Magazine. Tiny spot with a small, rotating menu. They normally serve small plates designed for sharing. Tastes are out of this world though!

  • McCrady’s Tavern

cozy spot serving local shellfish, salads, and fish. Heart of downtown.

下面重点说下我个人的推荐 😋
Old South Carriage Historic Tour

这个马车tour在Trip Advisor排名第一,还真是名至实归,他家的马比别家的高一头,特别帅气,他家的向导也比别家专业、卖力,从头到尾以亢奋的语调激情地介绍Charleston,各种段子信手拈来,嬉笑怒骂之间把历史、人文、风景、美食介绍的特别好,五星推荐!

可以从他家网站订票,也可以从Trip Advisor上订。

Fig (Acronym for Food Is Good)

每天5pm开门营业,生意巨好,建议提前一个月打电话或者在他家网站上订位。我因为正好住在对面的酒店,5点卡点进去,也只有吧台的座了,而且正好只剩了2个,所以如果要保证有座,建议提前订位。这家的southern cruise绝对够赞,重点推荐他家的pasta和fish stew。

Paw Paw

这也是一家southern cruise店,炸鸡是特色菜,在OpenTable上可以订位。

位于East Bay Street靠近market street附近,他家边上还有几个餐馆,看起来也都不错,对面是一家甜品店,我问了几个正在吃的客人,都说特别甜,所以我就pass了。

5 Church

强烈推荐这家,吃的不错,关键是特别适合照相!在OpenTable上可以订位。

整个餐馆是教堂改建的,屋顶上写满了整部The Art of War,孙!子!兵!法!

City Lights Coffee

如果在market street附近走累了,可以到这家咖啡店坐坐,如果你不喜欢咖啡因的话,他家有一款用红茶调配的不含咖啡因的拿铁,味道棒棒的!

The Battery

Charleston最南端的一个小公园,可以看🌅,东部能看海上日出的地方其实不多,既然来了就起个早吧 😄

Heritage Passport

如果你对参观历史古宅感兴趣,可以在Charleston Visitor Center或者网上购买一个Heritage Passport,比每个房子单买便宜很多,而且还包含两个郊区的种植园,来了南卡总要参观一两个种植园的。

我们去了距离市区大概车程20分钟的Magnolia Plantation & Gardens,做了个history train tour绕着种植园开了一圈,听导游讲了讲当年非洲黑奴是怎么把非洲的种植技术引进到美国南方,还看到了很多鳄鱼、南方特有的鸟类,挺值得到此一游的。

Low Country Walking Tour

2小时的步行tour,我们因为订了carriage tour就没有订这个,但是自己散步的时候看到一队一队的walking tour,感觉向导讲解得也挺好的。我们原计划订这个,感兴趣的朋友可以试试。
