A storm front may bring some wintry weather to the Upstate this weekend, but restaurants across the state are poised to warm bones with meals tailored for South Carolina’s Restaurant Week.
The event, coordinated to boost the Palmetto State’s presence as a culinary destination on the national stage, lasts from Jan. 7-17 at various venues across the state. Here are a few items on the menu:

Appetizers include tuna tartare and salt roasted golden beet salad, followed by a choice of bacon-wrapped barbecue shrimp, Joyce Farms chicken thighs, grilled beef tenderloin tails or Calabrian gnocchi. A selection of bourbon brown butter bread pudding or mocha pots du crème tops off the dinner.
