    Charleston`s iconic She-Crab Soup originated right at the John Rutledge House Inn. In the 1920s, Mayor Robert Goodwyn Rhett, residing at this charming inn, created a special version for President Taft, infusing orange crab eggs for a burst of color and flavor.

    Now a culinary legacy, this dish is a must-try for all Charleston foodies.

    Check out the link in our bio for more of this classic dish`s origin story!
