Fig Restaurant Executive Chef Jason Stanhope won Best Chef In The South title during the James Beard Award Gala in Chicago this month. This restaurant is frequently mentioned around Daniel Island as a place to go in Historic downtown Charleston. Just a 20 minute drive, it is well worth the effort. The environment and staff is unpretentious making the scene very inviting and comfortable. Other close contenders were the chefs at Husk and McCrady's.

Not since January 2007 have monthly sales surpassed the 800 closing mark. In January 2015, 890 homes sold at a median price of $209,603.
