A grand, formal space inside an antebellum-era hotel, this Peninsula Grill is one of Charleston’s longest-running high-end restaurants. Chef Graham Dailey, who took over the kitchen in 2011, still serves some of the Peninsula’s most famous dishes (low-country oyster stew with wild mushroom grits, seared foie gras with barbecued duck and peach jam;) while mixing in lighter, more modern dishes (pan-roasted local trout with tomato confit, bok choy and rock shrimp). The Ultimate Coconut Cake, with loads of buttery frosting and coconut, is so popular that it’s available through mail order.
