1. Lower King Street
The area between Calhoun St and Broad St is generally known as “Lower King” and encompasses a number of solid restaurants offering varied and delicious fare. On Lower King, you’re pretty close to the CofC campus, so prepare to see a bunch of college kids milling about. Choose between neighborhood gems like CO (which serves up some of the best Vietnamese and Thai food Downtown), the fantastic sandwiches at Bull Street Gourmet, and Fulton Five, which is perfect for date night.
