Now in its second year, Sean Brock’s transformation of the historic space into both the Gilded Age-themed McCrady’s Tavern and the exclusive McCrady’s tasting-menu-only restaurant under one roof has proven a huge success. Opt for the wine pairings with the McCrady’s tasting menu, or explore Charleston’s deepest cellar.
From the Sommelier: “I think there is an exciting, interesting shift happening with the pendulum of the public’s palate. A swing towards trying new wine and food is coming to remarkable heights. Curiosity, climate change, competition and education are all catalysts for this momentum. Jura, Tasmania, Corisca, and Etna are no longer oddities on by-the-glass programs. Pink, orange and yellow wines are making their way onto wine pairings and wine lists. Creative chefs have challenged the customer and sommelier causing a search for new and interesting styles of wines.” —Myres McDougal, McCrady’s
