Zero George, Boutique Hotel, Foodie Hotel, Charleston, South Carolina, Southern Hospitality

Traveling to Charleston in the Spring after a cold winter was soooo nice. The weather, the restaurants, and our accommodations all worked in unison. When that happens your vacation is great.

We chose the Zero George located on 0 George Street because of its reputation. Conde Nast names it as one of the top 5 Foodie Hotels in the world. Besides choosing it for our stay we also had the opportunity to enjoy a dinner in-house at their restaurant which was a foodie experience. More on that later.

There are 4 buildings in the property. Originally only 2 dating to 1804. The above photo shows where our suite was. This is one of those building with wide plank beautiful floors. It was like an apartment.

The property is beautifully maintained. Cozy and quaint you can find plenty of places to enjoy a drink during happy hour in the gardens or in their verandas.

Complimentary wine and cheese in the early evening.

You can walk from the Zero George to the center of town. But if you get tired or if you want to go to restaurants in the evening then calling the Bike Taxi or the Charleston Pedicab is the best way to go. The Zero George has valet parking available too. Plus, at night you practically get a tour of the city while these guys take you from one destination to another. At the time of our stay it was $12 for the ride. Charleston does not have a lot of Uber and I never saw a taxi. This is a very popular way to travel within town.

Charleston is so pretty. Walk, take a tour, enjoy their food and their music.

Have a great day.

Historic Charleston Eats! Husk, Charleston, South Carolina, Restaurant, Review, “A Destination to Savor”


The fun part of staying in Historic Charleston is that you can walk everywhere.  During my stay last week I noticed that Christmas decorations were very traditional and understated.  So en route to Husk at 76 Queen St. I was.


I was anticipating a very nice dinner.  This is one of the top restaurants in Historic Charleston.  Tel. 843-577-2500.  You can find it on Facebook.  Website? http:/

Husk is operated and managed by the Neighborhood Dining Group.  You can find this group managing and operating restaurants throughout the southeast.  For more info., please visit

Husk opens 7 days a week.  Lunch is served Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.  Sunday Brunch is from 10:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.  Dinner is from Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.  And, Friday and Saturday dinner is from 5:30 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.

Wednesday evening was crowded so my photos were limited to my dining experience.

The bread was sprinkled with sea salt.  It was brought to the table promptly.  The service from this point on was impeccable.


Through my stay in Charleston I always asked for the signature dish of the restaurant.  I figured it is one that is tried and true and really liked by the public.  So I started with Kentuckyaki Glazed Pig’s Ear Lettuce Wraps, Sweet Vinegar Marinated Cucumber, Red Onion and Bourbon Barrel Togarashi.  Togarashi is the Japanese word for red chili peppers and a general name for a group of condiments that blend chili pepper with other ingredients.  The pig’s ears were thinly sliced and were crisped.  The cucumbers were all preserved by Husk as they usually do with all their summer veggies.  This dish was awesome.  And when upon posting the photo on Facebook my friend, Shelley, mentioned….Oh you could get those at Southern States….she seems to still have a good sense of humor.


Another Signature Dish at Husk is the Cornmeal Dusted Carolina Catfish.  Field Peas and Butterbeans, Smoked Tomato Gravy, Mustard Greens.  Once again the flavors on this entree were terrific.  I also enjoyed this dish because I knew my late husband, John, would have ordered it, as well.  This Catfish had a bit of a bite to it even though the flavor was mild and the dusting was light.


A side order of Wood Fired Geechie Boy Mill Grits, and Cheddar from TN.  I ate grits everywhere I found them.  These were delicious. Geehie Boy Mill Grits are from Edisto Island, South Carolina. You can order online.  Please visit


My dessert was again decadent.  Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Fudge Cake with homemade Peanut Butter Ice Cream and a dusting of peanut butter powder.  I missed my partners in crime to help eat this cake, so what can I say, I ate it all myself.  Olive & Sinclair chocolate is stone ground in Nashville Tennessee.  More information, please visit

So, 3 nights in Historic Charleston, 3 delicious dinners, 2 great breakfasts, and 1 very nice lunch…..TTYL  Have Good One!!
