  • Because of all it has to offer including a reputation for being home to world class chefs, Giles is looking forward to his stay in Charleston, South Carolina. The first restaurant he visits is Aluette's Cafe, which serves what they call healthy holistic soul food. Although Giles has no issue with soul food, he does question the term holistic and what that implies for what they are serving, and that healthy is generally not used to describe soul food. The second restaurant is The Obstinate Daughter, a beachfront establishment on Sullivan's Island, which wants to bring downtown caliber food to a beachfront setting, which in this case means tapas styled plates instead of the traditional appetizer, entrée, dessert courses. To get Giles' review, it will have to live up to what it states it is. The third restaurant is Poogan's Porch, what the owner is trying to change from its reputation as a tourist trap to one that serves authentic low country cuisine with a modern twist. Because of that, Giles has a test for the chef to see if he can indeed pull off good tasting authentic local food. The fourth restaurant is The Lot, which uses locally sourced ingredients for a farm to table experience. The food and service have to be excellent to overcome the drive from downtown, and the fact of being located next to a noisy live rock music venue. The final restaurant is Lee Lee's Hot Kitchen, a Chinese restaurant. As Chinese cuisine is Giles' favorite, they may have to overcome both his expectations of doing something different while not pandering to the masses with bland food. In-between his meals, he decides to ditch the pompous wool suit for something more apropos to the American south. And he laments not having authentic southern barbecue, which he learns from Jessica is not typical to the Charleston region.
