Ted's Butcherblock

334 E Bay St, Charleston, SC, 29401



This gourmet café and butcher shop has a deli feel with its lush salads and artisanal sandwiches. Regulars and visitors alike speak of the gouda mac 'n' cheese in reverent terms. Ted's is located a little off the main city thoroughfare, but it's no less bustling than the downtown scene — every week they host Ultimate Sandwich Wednesdays, and Friday night Dinner & Wine Tastings.

Our secret spot, the best lunch in town. There's a little wine market with a sandwich and salad bar, and the wagyu beef panini is out of this world.
