Gaulart & Malicet's Fast & French

98 Broad St, Charleston, SC, 29401



Fast & French has been around for 30 years, and is a Charleston community staple. The owners are both artists and champions of the neighborhood. So, along with the flowing wine and rich, French fare — lots of blue cheeses and mustards — this establishment serves a true taste of the local scene.

This is an old favorite. It’s on Broad St. and has absolutely delicious French food, the best cold cucumber soup in the world, and lively communal seating.
