Travel writing certainly has its perks, and many of them come in the form of amazing food. I was working on a story about local attractions in Charleston, South Carolina, when I got invited to do a review on one of the town’s premiere restaurants, Cypress. Always up for a chance to sample local cuisine, I found myself standing in an elegant venue on East Bay Street, near historic downtown.

All in all, the food was pretty much a modern take on traditional southern cuisine. The creativity of these dishes is definitely something I’ll be attempting in my own kitchen. And while I can’t get fresh oysters at home in Colorado, I know exactly where to find them in Charleston. The next time you experience this esteemed historic city, put Cypress on your list of places to visit.
