Charleston Dining | The Watch: Restaurant with a View

I've said it before and I'll say it again — there is definitely no shortage of places to dine in Charleston. Choosing one is the difficult part. I like to keep an updated document on hand that I can share with people who travel into town and ask for recommendations on where to eat. My list is broken down by places to have breakfast, brunch and lunch, places to have a fancy dinner and places where the scene is more casual, places for drinks only and those places with a view that are perfect for happy hour. Which leads me to the  I wanted to share with you today. Located on the seventh floor of the luxury, chic, Restoration Hotel, The Watch is a great place for cocktails with a view! When I was searching for a place with outdoor seating to take my girlfriend for her birthday and said she had never been before, I knew we had to go. The outdoor rooftop area has first come, first serve seating and is available for dining and drinks. We got lucky last weekend and snagged a table right when we walked in the door. 
Since we are both pregnant, mocktails were the only order we placed from the bar. I must say, the non-alcoholic version of the White Point Garden was refreshing!   

 And in true hungry, pregnant lady fashion, we ordered all the carbs...
Including the ham and cheddar hush puppies with deviled egg mayo.
And the pesto gnocchi with lemon, basil, ricotta fingerling potatoes and asparagus, with a side of truffle frites.
It was a tad bit windy, but the view was still beautiful. It's a great spot to sip cocktails (or mocktails) with girlfriends, order a few snacks to share and soak in the beauty of the Holy City.
