The food counter at Caviar and BananasLocated at 51 George Street, Caviar and Bananas boasts a modern interior, an eclectic menu of organic food, a coffee and dessert bar, a great selection of wine and cheese, and flavor aides for both the amateur and professional cook. The staff are very friendly and very helpful and when I asked if I could take pictures for my blog, they were very accomodating. Everything on their menu looked delectable, so choosing dinner was a quite a task. I finally settled on two (thick) medallions of spice-rubbed seared beef tenderloin, grilled asparagus, braised collard greens, and a large crab cake...the walk and the cold left me famished!
tasso ham. My last item of choice was the crab cake. Made with fresh lump crab meat, this one was a bit different because the crab was not entirely shredded. I tasted a hint of wasabi which made this crab cake one for my books.

Food her in Charleston is relatively cheap. My dinner at Caviar and Bananas cost me under $15 which makes it a great place for the population that it serves - college students.
What a great selection of cheeses from around the world
After perusing the shelves and sampling some cheese, I had to leave, or else I would have sat there and eaten until I couldn't move. What a super little find! After my dinner adventure, I was off to the Francis Marion Park to see the sparkling Christmas Trees.
