Any place in North Charleston to get traditional black eyed peas, collards, and pork New Year's Day? I saw postings from two years ago that recommended Marie's, but don't think they are still in business.

I don't know what would be open on New Years Day, but I would bet that any locally-owned restaurant that is open will be serving Hoppin' John, rice, cornbread, greens, and maybe a cobbler. That's the menu at my house today!! Try calling Hominy Grill, Justine's Kitchen, Poogan's Porch, Trotter's Inn on Savannah Hwy., Magnolia's, and Planter's Inn for starters.

Default New Years Day dinner

Thanks, I called Cracker Barrell and was told they had everything we wanted. When we got there, we found they didn't know their greens, were serving turnips rather than collards. We were trying to avoid downtown, called several places, apparently I should I have cooked, ended up at Golden Corral. By the time I read your response, we had already left for Cracker Barrell, obviously we walked out, should have done the same at Golden Corral. Next year, if I am still here, I am cooking. Apparently this meal for New Year's is not native to Charleston. Some places had black-eyed peas but no collards, others just the opposite, some had both but no pork. Weird for a Southerner!

I haven't found many home-owned restaurants here, don't like to downtown just to eat because of the parking problems, any ideas for the future? I will try the others on your list, have done Hominy and love it, also found Toast a few weeks ago, it's even better than Hominy, but again, it's downtown.

Happy New Year to all.

Just for future trips downtown......
On the corner of Meeting and Market is a parking lot. It is open to the public after five during the week and weekends, it costs 7/8 dollars. It is diagonally across the street from Toast.

Default local restaurants

Try some of my favorites....Fat Hen, Sweeney's, Sunrise Bistro (all on johns island), Brick House Kitchen (james island) Triangle Grill, Middleton Inn Restaurant or Trotters (west ashley). There are plenty of places to go that serve traditional new years day dinner ! Cracker Barrell is a chain and not what I would call traditional low-country cuisine. Hope these help!
