OpenTable and Saveur Bestow Awards on Charleston Restaurants

FIG interiorOpenTable today released its list of U.S. restaurants specializing in American cuisine which over the last year received the highest diner scores; of the top 100 finishers, four are located in Charleston.

Charleston Grill, FIG, Peninsula Grill and Tristan were named Diners’ Choice award winners. The ratings were culled from five million reviews of 15,000 restaurants nationwide.

“We’re proud to know diners thoroughly enjoyed their experience here at Tristan,” executive chef Nate Whiting was quoted as saying in a release from the restaurant.

Other South Carolina restaurants which made the list include Sullivan’s Metropolitan Grill in Anderson; Aspen Grille in Myrtle Beach and The Parson’s Table in Little River.

FIG was also one of three local restaurants mentioned by name in Saveur’s explanation of its selection of Charleston for a Culinary Travel Award. San Sebastian, Spain was the experts’ choice in the “outstanding restaurants and dining, cities fewer than 80,000” category, but Charleston shared runner-up honors with Lyon, France and Bologna.

“The city boasts a dining scene that’s impossible to ignore,” an accompanying blurb explains. “Chef Sean Brock elevates South Carolina’s Caribbean- and African-inspired lowcountry fare to culinary-anthropological art at Husk, while Mike Lata of FIG and Robert Stehling of Hominy Grill reinterpret lowcountry classics in surprising new ways, while staying true to the home-cooked flavors on which the city’s palates came of age.”
