Located behind the historic Wentworth Mansion, Circa 1886 offers classic Charleston charm. The extensive wine list complements the local cuisine on the menu, which is created by talented chef Marc Collins using regional ingredients. Try the Carolina crabcake soufflé, a cheese course made from Appalachian raw cow milk’s cheese, or the catfish with lobster and white cheddar grits. Desserts are traditional and rich, from gingerbread pudding with orange blossom honey ice cream to sweet potato butterscotch soufflé. The classic presentation of each dish adds an elegant flourish to the meal. The staff is also polished and friendly.
