As we said earlier, this year's Taste of Georgetown looks to be the biggest one yet. With that, let's talk about some of the participating restaurants to watch for. (Click the hyperlink above for original story with line up.)
This will be the first time Root participates. Their dishes are extravagant and the flavors match the presentation. If you have had their food at the Front Street restaurant, you know you'll be in for a treat.
The same is to be said regarding Manor House Restaurant at Wedgefield. The eatery competed in a shrimp and grits cook off earlier this year and wowed those in attendance with the flavors. They'll be on their game at the event when they strive to leave all with an unforgettable taste.
Perennial favorites Rustic Table and Alfresco Georgetown Bistro will be making sure they live up to their reputation in providing a great dish with awesome flavors. Alfresco Georgetown Bistro is won the tasting award in 2017.
And you can't go without mentioning The River Room. Since 1984, the Front Street restaurant has been satisfying locals and tourists alike with their seafood and dessert offerings. It doesn't hurt to have a great view of the harbor either. They'll be presenting a great tasting for sure and lines will long as they were last year for it.
A new sweet tasting this year will come from Paradice Homemade Ice Cream. Consistency in flavor and taste will follow from their locations in Pawleys Island and Litchfield to the Harborwalk, that's for sure.
Now, it's your turn. Comment below on who you are looking forward to having a taste from.
Fall is here! And with that, you now have a spectacular event to plan for.

Let's talk about last night.
Chef Danny Smith of Frank's and Frank's Outback in Pawleys Island held a seven-course practice dinner at Benjamin's Bakery in Surfside to raise funds for his World Food Championships journey to Dallas, Texas, in October.
And if you were there, your taste buds are still thanking you.
Smith is a multiple-award winning chef and is putting our culinary adventure on the national scene. The dishes he and sous chef Charles Bardo created were superb in flavor and presentation.
The best dish of the night was a tie for us. The South Carolina Shrimp Bisque with Creme Fraiche and Ciabatta Bread Croutons and Parmesan Encrusted Flounder, Butter-Poached Carolina Shrimp, Palmetto Farms Stone White Cheddar Grits, Sauteed Beets and Greens and a Carolina Blue Crab Butter Sauce were amazing.
The World Food Championships will be held October 16 through 20. For more information, please visit their Facebook page.
Take a look at the photos below - with dish captions - to see what we were very fortunate to taste.
We all experienced a taste of Fall this week with those cool temperatures. Now, it's time to start enjoying some great barbeque, barbecue, BBQ, well, you get it.
This month's award winner has some of the best barbeque around. You can find it Big Bill's Lowcountry Barbeque at 2041 North Fraser Street in Georgetown.
Owners Bill and Sandra Blake take their craft of Q very seriously. When you taste it, you'll know you have landed at an awesome eatery. The staff work tirelessly not only to provide some of the best home-style cooking around, but make sure you are treated like you are at home when enjoying it.
The "fixins" cannot be left out, friends. Fried Chicken, pork shoulder and pulled pork have to be complimented, you know?
That's why there's pirleau (upcharge), corn on the cob, baked beans and more to slap aside those meat options. And you must get the mac and cheese. Nice burn on the cheese on top and the creaminess is heaven-sent.
And they have some of the best sweet tea to wash it all down.
Open Thursday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and open Sundays for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., there's plenty of time to enjoy this month's Simply Amazing Dish of the Month.

The word - and enjoyable tastes of the food - is out at Yagi Sushi and Hibachi in Pawleys Island.
Southern Flavor Magazine's Fall issue has named them one of their "delicious discoveries" and that notoriety has had droves of folks dining in.
Whether it be for the edible artwork known as their sushi or the satisfying hibachi choices, you'll soon find out why this magazine staff couldn't get enough.
We can't either. Here's some photos from our latest dine-in.
