If you’re looking for an adventure while in Charleston, it is likely that you will end up on James Island or Johns Island; when you do, be sure to pay a visit to the Fat Hen. The Fat Hen is located on Johns Island, just 20 minutes from downtown, and is known for its hospitality. This restaurant has combined French cuisine with lowcountry staples to create their own versions of amazing dishes like Coq Au Vin, and seared duck confit with smoked fig jus, roasted sweet potatoes, and garlic spinach. Most of their ingredients come from local farms, and it is easy to tell that the chefs take pride in their dishes. Sit back and reflect on the day in a relaxed setting, and recover with some excellent food and drink while you do.
