Cypress - Our Best High End Meal in Charleston

After our disappointment with Husk and our totally awesome meals at Marta Lou's Kitchen and J.B.'s Smokeshack I was prepared to be let down by Cypress. If fact almost cancelled the reservation. However, we were totally impressed from start to finish. The drinks, service, decor, food, and wine were all first class. It was a very Southern high end Hospitality place. If you want to do Charleston's best I recommend Cypress.

Unlike Husk they were not trying to be down home Low Country - they were an uptown, local, seasonal, class act.

Hello Steve, Lucinda, Amy, Steve and Jeff,

Hi there! I hope this email finds you well. I came across your blog while hunting for great restaurant reviews and am really impressed by the depth of your knowledge about food culture and dining life in NYC. You guys really know your stuff. I can tell that your NYC restaurant reviews are very detailed and discerning. Now, let me tell you a bit about myself - I work at Taste Savant, a new restaurant discovery website, and am writing to see if you’d be interested in giving us some feedback on our new site and also to see if you’d be interested in discussing some partnership opportunities.

Taste Savant is the ultimate one-stop shop that aggregates restaurant reviews from all the sources users trust to help them decide where to eat. We curate and aggregate reviews from friends, restaurant critics, bloggers, and others so users can see what the people they trust and respect think about any given restaurant. Think: Rotten Tomatoes for Restaurants meets Facebook. Currently, we are focusing on NYC-based restaurants.

As I’m sure you know, the food space is growing but with a lot of noise and unorganized data in the space. Users cross reference information and visit multiple sites before they choose a restaurant. There is no simple or streamlined way to sift through all the information and we realized there was a huge void (and opportunity!) to fill. The ideas started flowing…and that is how Taste Savant was born!

It’s early days for us and we’re seeking feedback from people who really understand the food community! Also our users are requesting more content from bloggers and so I’d be keen to discuss partnership opportunities with you as well. I would love to discuss over the phone at a time that is convenient for you.

If you’re free anytime in the next week or so, let’s definitely chat! Shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing back from you all.

Warmest regards,

Emma Chao

Stuffed TomatoThe traditional society of Bengal has always been heavily agrarian; hunting, except by some local tribals, was uncommon. The rearing of animals, except cows was also not popular. This is reflected in the cuisine, which relies on staples like rice and dal, with little place for game or meat.
