famous Charleston restaurant cookbook Peninsula Grill

A Gift for the Home Cook

The Peninsula Grill Served with Style Cookbook

This stunning 250-page hardcover cookbook shares the story of how Peninsula Grill catapulted onto the national dining scene and became one of the South's most enchanting and beloved dining experiences.

Epicureans are in for a world-class treat, thanks to scores of many never-before-revealed recipes for the Mobil four-star and AAA four-diamond restaurant's sumptuous dishes, sides, and legendary sauces.

And the tales stretch beyond the kitchen. Read how nationally acclaimed designer Amelia Handegan battled to wrap the dining room in velvet and how landscape architect Sheila Wertimer magically transformed a parking lot on the busiest corner in the state into a magical garden oasis.

With photography by celebrated photographer Peter Frank Edwards, the Peninsula Grill: Served with Style cookbook is a gift that will be long remembered.

Adopt a Snuggle Buddy

The Planters Inn Teddy Bear

The beloved Planters Inn hospitality ambassador Charles T. Bear sits on every bed, waiting for guests to arrive. Years ago, the owner of Planters Inn flew to San Francisco on the red-eye and went straight to work without any sleep. He was tired, frustrated, and angry by the time he checked into his hotel that night.

At turndown, a teddy bear was tucked into the bed, and it struck him as an utterly charming way to give a tired traveler a smile. Planters Inn has been sharing teddy bear hospitality with guests ever since.

Please contact our concierge if you wish to adopt your very own Charles T. Bear.
