Sorelle features caviar croquettes as part of their Valentine’s Day chef-tasting menu.

  • Sorelle | 88 Broad St., Charleston | $124+ per person | This hand-crafted menu offers six courses highlighting fresh ingredients and serving them up in southern Italian style.
  • Wild Common | 103 Spring St., Charleston | $85 per person | Chef Orlando Pagán’s vision crafted this eight-course dinner and offers an extra charge for accompaniments.
  • The Restaurant at Zero George | 0 George St., Charleston | $145 per person | There are between 12-15 dishes offered depending on the season. The menu changes regularly to ensure a unique and interactive experience. Pro tip: Zero George also offers cooking classes.

To deliver a meal just the way the chef envisioned, typically, making changes to these tasting menus isn’t possible. Pro tip: If you have dietary restrictions, call ahead.

If you don’t see the tasting menu posted with the restaurant’s menu, give them a call to ensure it’s not a holiday-specific offering.
