Amen Street top restaurant downtown Charleston South Carolina ushers in the Fall season with seafood favorites. Fall in Charleston promises (slightly) cooler temperatures and a break from humidity which is happily celebrated with Fall comfort foods. Fall is a great time to stroll downtown Charleston and enjoy a great lunch or dinner at Amen Street. Here are a few of our favorite dishes from our menu that are perfect for the season.
Fried Oysters – We can’t even begin to talk about Fall without talking about oysters! At Amen Street, we enjoy oysters year-round but, there is no doubt in the South that the Fall is synonymous with oysters. Raw or fried, oysters at Amen Street are always the best in Charleston.
She-Crab Soup – Amen Street’s take on the Southern signature soup is really perfect any time of year. But when the weather gets a little cooler, there is nothing more comforting than a fabulous cup or bowl of soup. Served with sherry, our She-Crab soup is perfect on its own or before a lunch or dinner entrée.
Shrimp & Grits – Pictured at the top, this is another signature Southern dish but with a twist. Amen’s Shrimp & Grits are served with tasso ham, green onions and roasted tomatoes. It is the quintessential feel-good dish for enjoying on a brisk or rainy day. While there are many places in the South to enjoy this Southern gem, there is no place that serves it quite like Amen Street.
Lobster and Shrimp Risotto – Creamy and delicious, Amen’s Lobster and Shrimp Risotto is comfort on a plate. Served with fresh seafood, fresh herbs and parmesan cheese, it is satisfying and flavorful.
If you love fresh seafood like we do at Amen Street, then you simply can’t go wrong with any of these great choices. We look forward to seeing you soon at Amen Street!
