Food Network: The Best Restaurants in Charleston

The Food Network just released its list of the "best places and dishes to eat" in Charleston, and we're thrilled to be named a "Charleston classic!"

Dessert: Coconut Cake at Peninsula Grill

On the menu since Valentine’s Day of 1997, the 12-layer Peninsula Grill Ultimate Coconut Cake® is another Charleston classic. The five-inch tall, 25-pound coconut colossus is actually two cakes cut into three layers each, with fluffy filling, cream cheese icing and toasted coconut pressed into its sides delivering decadent bits without being too sweet or tropical. A huge slice is 1/16 of the cake, but whole coconut cakes are also very popular Charleston souvenirs (and are shipped around the country).
