Been thinking about escaping down to the coast for a little rest, relaxation and restaurants? Make plans, then, because the Greater Charleston Restaurant Association will be holding its annual Restaurant Week from Sept. 3-14 with over 140 dining establishments in the Lowcountry participating.
Breaking the tradition of pricing dishes according to category tiers of $20, $30 or $40, restaurants will have the freedom to set their own prices for their lunch and dinner specials, giving chefs more flexibility in creating their menu offerings. More details on reservations (which are highly recommended), menus, photos of the food and other information can be found on the free Charleston Restaurant Association app, or on its website.
