Basic Kitchen promotes locally sourced, seasonal, and sustainable food choices and gives guests delightful, nutritious flavor profiles to indulge in a relaxed, bright and airy environment. More like eating at a loved one’s home than dining out, Basic Kitchen has enthralled us each time we’ve visited. The colorful, invigorating menu options open Basic Kitchen to anyone who loves good food (food allergy sufferers like me included!), making it a fantastic place to dine in beautiful, historic Charleston, SC.
Basic Kitchen is one of my favorite lunch places I’ve ever experienced, and easily one of the best places we ate during our road trip. Their philosophy centers around the idea of respecting the environment, respectfully adapting global recipes to Charleston by using locally sourced, seasonally available ingredients, and serving everything with a wholesome flare that leaves diners satisfied and energized. Here’s why we loved dining at Basic Kitchen in Charleston.
