Great Lunch Spot Also Offers the Best Meat in Charleston – This locally-owned market offers the feel and service of an old-fashioned butcher shop combined with great prepared foods, sandwiches, salads and more. Try any of the paninis for lunch - they're reasonably priced and oh so delicious! The chef does a great job with a menu of prepared foods that changes monthly.
As for the butcher part of the shop - this isn't your typical grocery store meat counter. Everything is all-natural and hand cut or ground to order, so you know exactly what you are getting. Ted is usually the one cutting the meat, and is always happy to talk about his products and answer questions. They even make their own pancetta, Italian sausage, smoked salmon and more!
They recently opened a small outpost on the Isle of Palms at the marina, which is great news for beach goers and boaters.
Don't miss their Friday $12 dinner specials, wine tastings and monthly craft beer dinners!
edibly oustanding – Ted's is like a meat candy store. More varieties of bacon than ben & jerry have icecream. It's an amazing store. I could actually order a beer and drink it while I shopped. I had an amazing chicken, pancetta, and avocado sandwhich. Picked up some cheeses and Ted paired up some wine, which went well. I even bought some sea salt from japan. Cool store definately worth checking out. But be sure to go there hungry. Very cool reminds me of somewhere between Europe and New York.
Great local place – Ted's is one of my favorite local places in Charleston. Want local oysters? Need some duck fat to make authentic french fries? Ted is your guy. Good cheese selection as well if you're looking for something like an aged Manchego.
And the panini are really good - just know that you'll probably have to wait a little while for one during the lunch hour - I think they're still figuring out how to cope with the bigger crowds at lunch now that they've added more tables inside. . .
tasteless cookies – This cookie business, now doing business as 3 Smart Cookies is a major disappointment. The cookies lack flavor, character and the presentation is unappealing. The open kitchen allows the customer to observe the disgustingly and unkemp dressed baker. Customer service, once a hallmaker of this new business, has become non-existent. This franchise of a very wonderful Savannah, Ga. cookie business should quietly disappear and no one would even miss it.
Great place for gourmet lunch, international meats and boutique wines! – Ted's Butcherblock has wonderful gourmet panini, sandwiches and salads for lunch, or you can choose from an array of international meats, housemade pastas and pates for dinner. They feature a different region or country every month, so the menu is ever-changing and includes anything from Chinese to Greek to South American to African.
Ted's is a great place to pick up reasonably priced, boutique wines (they carry several labels that are hard-to-find anywhere else in town) and artisan cheeses. They have a wine director on staff who can assist you in your search for the perfect bottle. Every Friday, they host wine tastings (which often feature nibbles from their menu) for only $1, which goes to a local charity.
Don't miss Ted's on your trip to Charleston! It's one-of-a-kind and you won't be disappointed!
