If you’re in a Charleston beach house right now, I hope you’re hungry.  One of the most popular culinary events is popping up again, and Lowcountry restaurants are sure to be buzzing with activity.  It’s Charleston Restaurant Week, and it kicks off tomorrow.  It’ll be running from Wednesday, January 6th  through Sunday, January 17th.

Sponsored by the Charleston Restaurant Association, it’s become a wildly popular event that takes place twice a year (January and September), and it’s proven to be a big hit with locals and visitors alike.

This year, more restaurants than ever are taking part.

If you are here in a beach house Charleston, whether it’s one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals or Folly Beach rentals Charleston, chances are you are going to go out to eat.  You’ve got to feed the folks in your Charleston beach house, and you might as well let someone else do it.  Restaurant Week is a great way to sample some of the best the town has to offer, at prices better than ordering a la carte.

This event just gets bigger and better each time it rolls around.  Charleston restaurants showing up on all sorts of prominent best-in-the-country lists doesn’t hurt, as local chefs are getting the rep of rock stars.  Charleston’s culinary scene is one of the main draws for folks coming to our rental homes South Carolina, be it Isle of Palms vacation rentals or Folly Beach house rentals Charleston SC.  Lowcountry food is hot, and Charleston Restaurant Week is, too.

They’ve tweaked it a bit since they first started it.  Instead of having three tiers of pricing ($20, $30 or $40 per person for three courses), restaurants are encouraged to come up with their own specially priced event menus.  It looks to be a benefit to diners, adding more flexibility as restaurants respond to what people enjoy or have asked for in the past.  Some restaurants are opting for a special drink as opposed to a third-course dessert or first-course appetizer, for example.

Following is a link to the Charleston Restaurant Association’s helpful webpage on the event.  Each participating restaurant is listed along with a link to their special menu for Restaurant Week, and this year they have it broken down by location, so you can tell which is closest to your Charleston beach house:  http://www.charlestonrestaurantassociation.com/charleston-restaurant-week/

It’s highly recommended to make a reservation as these slots fill up FAST.

More than 60 of the restaurants are bookable through Open Table, if you’d prefer to reserve through them.  Here’s a link where you can make a reservation:  http://www.opentable.com/promo.aspx?m=91&ref=12856&pid=476&et_cid=686449&et_rid=16844125

Also, the Charleston Restaurant Association has an official free smartphone app available.  Just go to your favorite app store and search for CRA.  It even includes a tip calculator and a parking assistant.
