In keeping up with my adventures in Charleston, I ventured out to one of Upper King Street’s fine new restaurants… Indaco! It was just a short walk from my home at the Francis Marion, located amidst several other hot spots north of the hotel. Indaco serves up rustic Italian entrees, wood-fire pizzas, pastas, housemade salumi and house-cured sausages and meats. Plenty of delicious options to feed a hungry fox!

In addition to the a la carte menu, a family-style menu created by chef Michael Perez allows guests to enjoy the full spectrum of Indaco and partake in the shared dining customs of Italian cuisine. You know it will be a fine treat when you let the chef decide what you’ll eat!

Don’t worry, there is plenty to wet your pallet as well; they have an extensive list of Italian wines, unique cocktails and micro brews. Besides the delicious food and wonderful libations, the atmosphere was very comfortable and well appointed, and the service was exquisite, with a fine attention to detail.

Plus… if this fox gets hungry late night, you bet I’ll head back for a wood fired pizza since they serve them until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays!

So I don’t know if y’all heard, but my hotel celebrated its 90th Birthday this past week.  Happy Birthday, Francis Marion Hotel!  The celebration had me feeling a little nostalgic for the Roaring 20′s, so I trotted on down to Prohibition.  Now, even though I didn’t see Al Capone or any dancing flappers, I did manage to get my paws on some fine hooch! Prohibition crafts each of their cocktails with house infused liquors, bitters, and fresh berries.  You certainly can’t go wrong with the bacon maple old fashion.

The only thing that made my experience better were the Béarnaise Fries.  YUM!! A little later I ordered Molly Pitcher’s Pork Chop Skillet which was all dolled up with a ginger peach glaze and a golden duck egg!  I also got a bite of the Capone Burger, which was pretty fantastic too!  All in all, next time I’m ready for a good cocktail and light fare, I’m heading back to the only speakeasy on King Street.  Why not join me?
