Beet salad at FIG Charleston

Tomato, goat cheese, and pine nut salad

No point in burying the lede here.  I can tell you about FIG Charleston in three words: Eat here now.  Forget about the price --- yes, it's pricy --- or that you need to make reservations at least a week in advance for even a Wednesday night.  Go there.  Eat there.  And believe in what FIG stands for: Food is Good.

Are you still here?  Shouldn't you be booking the next flight to Charleston?  And making a reservation at FIG?  When you do, drool, eat, and then send me pictures so I can drool some more.
