Though this corner restaurant aims for a low-key, neighborhood bistro feel, the crowds of trendily-dressed twenty- and thirty-somethings gathered outside waiting for their tables makes the vibe a little less than laid-back. They're lined up for a good reason, though. FIG has earned a reputation as one of Charleston's best locavore restaurants, serving creative Lowcountry cuisine with farm-fresh ingredients. A bowl of green garlic soup might be followed by Caw Caw Creek Pork Trotters (yes, you guessed it, that means pig's feet) and rice flour-battered triggerfish. Vegetable side dishes, served family-style, are wonderful. Cocktails are also a specialty. Decor is pretty and unpretentious, evoking a latter-day Parisian cafe.
