There is no shortage of romantic restaurants in the Charleston, so if you're heading to the Lowcountry to dine with your sweetheart, the only trouble you'll have is choosing where to go. Fulton Five has a tiny, candle lit dining room serving Italian food with serious sex appeal. It’s been winning local “most romantic restaurant” awards for years. Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant Circa 1886 is located inside the original carriage house of the historic Wentworth Mansion, and is the epitome of classic Charleston charm. The extensive wine list complements the menu's local cuisine created by chef Marc Collins. Just down the street from his much-acclaimed restaurant Husk, James Beard Award-winning chef Sean Brock mans the kitchen at McCrady’s. The restaurant is located in a classic Charleston building now on the National Register of Historic Places and Landmarks, and Brock's impeccable menu features Southern cuisine at its finest. Just off of Market Street in the heart of historic Charleston is Anson. The interior is stylish and chic, but also warm and relaxing, and the menu features locally sourced ingredients from sustainable seafood and fisheries and organic farmers. Finally, check out either of James Beard Award-winning chef Mike Lata's restaurants: The Ordinary, which is nominated for 2013 Best New Restaurant by the James Beard Foundation and is housed in an old bank, or FIG, Lata's cozy neighborhood restaurant on Meeting Street.
