This is part two of our fun weekend in Charleston. Catch up on part one here.
Saturday night we had dinner reservations at SNOB. Charleston has an incredible restaurant scene and we always struggle with choosing where to eat. We hadn’t dined at SNOB in years so we decided to visit again.
We arrived a little early for our 9:15 reservations so we enjoyed a cocktail at the bar while we waited for our table.
Dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a dirty martini and it was so good.
I was thrilled when we were seated with a clear view of the open kitchen.
I love restaurants with open kitchens. I think it’s so fun to watch the action in the kitchen and to see all of the food come out.
We ordered wine and checked out the menu. We decided to order an appetizer, “medium plate” and entree and split everything. We started with a salad.
Arugula, apples, blue cheese, grilled onions and toasted pecans with a sweet balsamic dressing.
Our medium plate was Stuffed Carolina Quail.
Cornbread tasso stuffing, buttermilk fried leg, sautéed spinach, port wine reduction. Served with sauteed spinach.
At the recommendation of our server, we selected the rack of lamb as our entree.
Lamb with green beans, grits, pearl onions and a cabernet rosemary sauce. This was so delicious!
Dessert was the “South of Broad Classic.”
Rum and chocolate custards layered on Oreo cookie crust.
Our dinner at SNOB did not disappoint and was just as good as the last time we dined there. One of my favorite things about trips to Charleston is the food. Such an amazing foodie city!
After dinner, we drove back to Isle of Palms and promptly crashed in our comfortable king-sized bed. I slept soundly until about 8 a.m. We awoke to discover another beautiful day with perfect weather.
Brandon and I both went for runs this morning. He got Vibrams for Christmas and has been digging them. He decided to run on the beach in his Vibrams. I was super impressed! He said he covered 3-4 miles in them and is definitely feeling it in his calves and hips.
I ran a beautiful five miles. Four around the resort and one on the beach. The sand was flat and packed. I loved every second of my run. The temperature was perfect. I was able to run in shorts and a long-sleeved shirt.
Our last order of business for our trip was lunch at Poe’s.
Poe’s is located on Sullivan’s Island and is a must every time we visit Charleston.
They are known for their burgers and fish tacos.
Brandon always goes for the burgers and I usually order fish tacos.
He went all out today and ordered a burger with pimento cheese, bacon and an egg. Of course I sampled quite a few of his fries. 😉
I had the mahi tacos. Everything was great, as always! The best part of the meal was that we were able to sit outside. We just really couldn’t have asked for better weather in Charleston this weekend.
We decided to walk out to the beach after lunch before getting in the car to head back to Charlotte.
We were so sad to leave our happy place but it was a wonderful quick getaway. We are so lucky to only be three hours away!
We made one final stop on our way out…
Menchies! Can you guess his and hers?
We’re back in Charlotte now and I have tomorrow off of work. I am planning on doubling up on yoga classes tomorrow morning and then just running errands and getting things done around the house.
Hope you all had a great weekend! Is anyone else off tomorrow? If so, what are your plans?
