This Lowcountry retreat, with distressed columns, buttery yellow walls, and oil paintings of palmetto trees and crumbling lean-tos, gets portion sizes just right. It’s a great place to sample a host of regional specialties without overloading on the fried factor.
Don’t Miss the traditional favorite, shrimp and grits. Anson masters simplicity with perfection: grits (stone-ground in-house) married with tender certified Wild American Shrimp, shrouded in a light sauce, studded with bacon and roasted tomatoes. 12 Anson Street; www.ansonrestaurant.com or (843) 577-0551
