CIC Has Exciting Dine Around During BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival

"One of the most coveted events on the Festival schedule is the Restaurant Dine-Arounds. This year nineteen of Charleston's renowned chefs, three of them James Beard Best Chef Southeast Award winners, will open the doors of their acclaimed restaurants to a nationally celebrated guest chef to craft a 5-course tasting menu that blends together the culinary styles of each chef and creates a one-of-a-kind menu and dining experience. A winemaker will join each restaurant to pair every dish with the perfect varietal."
