At Charleston, dessert is included in the price of your prix-fixe meal, whether you order three, four, five or six courses and includes a small but thoughtfully composed set of offerings. The restaurant’s culinary philosophy embraces local harvests, so expect to see seasonal fruit taking center stage. A recent visit showcased summer’s bounty with dishes like a peach galette with vanilla-raspberry sorbet, a blackberry tart with raspberry-peach-rose sorbet, and a frozen apricot parfait. If you prefer creamy and decadent though, indulge in treats like vanilla crème brulée with local fruit sorbet or guanaja chocolate mousse with roasted apricots. You’ll likely be full after enjoying the variety of courses at Charleston, but make sure to save room for dessert (and perhaps a bit extra room for the cheese trolley, too).
