Chef Marc Collins on New Charleston Cuisine:

One of my favorite books to find inspiration in is 200 Years of Charleston Cooking, which includes plenty of great recipes from the 1800s and early 1900s. Charleston was a great port city and back then it got spices from India, the Caribbean and from the French Huguenots that were living here. New Orleans gets a lot of credit for its regional cuisine, but I think Charleston’s might be even more diverse thanks to those influences. Those things play a lot into how we put together our menu. I try to get a little Caribbean flavor in there, some Asian influence, some French, all mixed in with that Americana. New Charleston cuisine is like a big melting pot.
