If you missed out on one of Charleston’s favorite culinary extravaganzas known as Taste of Hutson Alley, here’s a recap of what you missed so you can get your tickets for next year.
This quaint back alley tucked away in Downtown Charleston, known as Hutson Alley, is made up of six restaurants and one catering company. Find french cuisine at 39 Rue De Jean, fresh seafood at Coast Bar and Grill, an uptown scene at Victor’s Social Club, fine italian at Vincent Chiccos, traditional southern delicacies at Virginia’s on King, one of the best steaks in town at Michael’s on the Alley and Good Food Catering for all of your top of the line food service needs. All seven of these Charleston hot spots gave those at the event a taste of what Huston Alley has to offer.

The menu was made up of Duck rillette on crostini with housemade dijon and pickled red onion from 39 Rue De Jean, Oysters on the half shell and shrimp cocktail from Coast Bar and Grill, one of a kind mint and rosemary rubbed grilled lamb chop with roasted root vegetable and raisin gratin plus a maraschino cherry demi glace from Michael’s on the Alley.
