Turnkey Vacation | Charleston

April 2014 |

CHARLESTON IS HOT—and I’m not referring to the climate.  In each of the last three years, the readers of Conde Nast Traveler have voted Charleston, South Carolina, the Best City in the United States.

Southern Comfort: Charleston And Charleston Place, The City’s Top Hotel

April 4, 2014 |

City nicknames, in The Hotel Detective’s opinion, fall into two categories: brilliant branding or mysterious monikers.

April 15, 2014 |

After a fabulous meal at Husk this past October, I and my friend, Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog, who had been dining there that evening with his family, had the pleasure of a behind the scenes tour of the restaurant with Husk GM, Dan Latimer.

The Best American Cities for Foodies

March 2014 |

Our readers’ favorite city in America (and the one they also voted the friendliest) has gone way beyond standard-issue Southern in recent years, with restaurant creativity to rival much larger cities’ and, in the form of a local edition of the food blog Eater, the discriminating diners that go with it. New restaurants like The Ordinary (pictured)—where local oysters are shucked […]

Inside The Charcuterie Closets At Husk In Charleston

March 19, 2014 |

If I’d just gotten a reservation at Charleston chef Sean Brock’s famed Husk, it would have been enough. But I didn’t get into this business for “enough,” I got into it for things like fried pig’s heart and cheddar bologna and lengthy peeks into fridges of duck prosciutto and homemade Slim Jims the circumference of a silver dollar.
