Feathertop and Wise-Buck Smoked Meats both made it onto Eater’s Hottest Restaurants in Charleston list for August 2016.


Currently, Feathertop offers brunch and dinner in an airy space with mid-century modern touches and plenty of light. The menu celebrates Lowcountry produce with many vegetable-heavy dishes and homemade pastas — for example, one of the seasonal starters is heirloom tomatoes with ricotta, basil, and lavender granola. Bottles of wine are all under $65 and dishes are $20 and under. Feathertop could be an easy date night option or a destination for brunch with friends.


Wise Buck Smoked Meats is the most casual of the Damon Wise/Jonathan Buckley empire mounting on Ann Street. The eatery offers top-notch cookout foods like St. Louis ribs, deviled ham, leg of lamb sandwiches, smoked corn on the cob, and more. Grab some meat, a can of beer, and watch the crowds go by from a picnic table on the patio.
