Great experience during Restaurant Week

Still very good, consistent food with great attention to service.
Only downside was that the restaurant was VERY noisy this time and was not the peaceful dinner experienced in January.

Perfect meal, beautiful surroundings

A group of us went to Peninsula Grill on a recent wintry evening, and were completely enchanted. This elegant, clubby restaurant is in the Planters Inn, which is a member of the prestigious Relais and Chateaux group, tucked away on a quiet street in downtown Charleston.

They offered a special “Restaurant Week” menu, three courses for $40, but treated us as if we spending a fortune: beautifully coordinated service, without any pretensions. Our waiter was cordial, helpful with suggestions and descriptions, and very friendly without being too familiar.

From several choices, I tried the duck and lobster gumbo, braised short rib with pea, mushroom and bacon risotto, and a chocolate cherry torte. Each were perfect: the gumbo a little spicy, but smoky and balanced, the short rib hearty and made more sophisticated by the elegant risotto, and the choclate torte the light, but rich, concoction that the waiter described.

Very comprehensive wine list, with the loveliest riesling I’ve ever tasted.

At regular prices, this meal would’ve been about $75, and would’ve been worth every penny.

duck and oyster gumbo

Beautiful blend of smoky, spicy rich broth with raw oysters and mild duck. Perfect appetizer.

Braised beef short rib

Hearty, simple meat, but made very elegant with the creamy, rich risotto. Extremely generous portion.

chocolate cherry torte

How can rich chocolate and cherries also be light and refreshing? Delicious!
