Great times, great eats at Chai's in Charleston

I'd like to state for the record that Charleston has great restaurants.

I went to a place called Chai's Lounge & Tapas last night, and it was AWESOME. I was there with several fun people from the Charleston office, and we shared something like eight dishes, all of which were delicious. I particularly loved the short ribs - it's enough to make me want to come back to Charleston.

The people I was with know the executive chef Derek Falta really well, so we got a few special items from him as well, including this awesome bourbon pecan ice cream. Mmmm. Thanks, Derek!

Off to Blossom tonight!

Aw, now I'm really disappointed that we had to cancel our Charleston trip that we were supposed to take this month!

Sounds like fun!

Well, if you're traveling for work, Fargo-Moorhead has some great restaurants and is currently boasting a heat wave. :) Miss you!

I went to Chai's a few weeks ago and fell in love with the meatballs. Did you get a chance to try them? I want to know what Chef Falta put in that tzatziki sauce!!!

Also, I grew up in Seattle, but now live in Atlanta. Let me know if you want any restaurant recommendations!
