39 Rue De Jean has been voted the best French Restaurant and lays claim to the best mussels in Charleston. I can’t verify that their’s are the best in town, but I can say that I’ve never had better. Taylor, Lou, and I enjoyed a substantial serving of their Pistou mussels, which were served in a basil pesto sauce with bread for dipping. The mussels were a wonderful primer to what would be an even better meal.
Lou seemed quite satisfied with his steak, and the “De Fruits de Mer” seafood platter that Taylor and I split did not disappoint. We filled our bellies with shrimp, clams, raw oysters, and a lobster tail covered in crab meat. 39 Rue De Jean may have competitors, but this place has to be at the top of anyone’s list for the best that Charleston has to offer.
