This is our last day in Charleston. We had decided to visit a couple of the plantations before heading back to Florida. My husband and I enjoyed a tour at the Middleton plantation house and followed if by a long walk through the gardens and grounds of the plantation. Before we realized it, it was 6pm and we still had 5 hours of driving ahead of us. We decided to have dinner at the Middleton Place before starting our drive south. I can not tell you how happy we did it. It was by far our favorite meal throughout our trip. My husband ordered the Hanger steak and I ordered the grouper special. Both dishes were outstanding. My husband's hanger steak was tender and cooked to perfection. It was served with crispy finger potatoes, spinach with smoked bacon in a white bur blanc sauce. My dish was a large portion of grilled grouper over a spinach soufflé with squash and small round crispy potatoes. It was exceptional. My husband asked me to choose our dessert. However, being true to me I could not decide between the torte or the peach bread pudding. Jason, an amazing server, said he would surprise us. I was thankful he did. He served us the peach bread pudding and gave shared us why he had chosen it for us. Jason was kind, polite, and attentive. I wish there were more Jason's in our world. The view of the large oak was breathtaking. The atmosphere of the restaurant was elegant and very charming. I wish I lived closer so that I could have the pleasure of enjoying Jason and his magnificent service; and the wonderful delicacies the Middleton Place Restaurant has to offer. Exceptional. A must do while in Charleston.
