Blossom is a great option for a quick and delicious lunch. The food was great and prepared in a timely manner making it a great option for lunch. Fair warning the bread is addictive.

Charleston is chock full of good restaurants. Blossom has a reputation, but, really, the food is just OK and the service is perfunctory. The whole dinner experience was expensive--and also forgettable. They need to try harder.
