Welcome to our Spring feast, one that keeps us in the beautiful U. S of A, on the Atlantic coast. Have you met Charleston? Whether or not you have been here before, visit Charleston during a time of year that you will not want to miss. Hosted by several times James Beard Award Nominee Chef Kevin Fonzo, navigate the festival's events, hand-picked by Kevin.

The festival is a catalyst for connections that inspire curiosity through thoughtful storytelling and meaningful experiences with a sense of Place". Not, that's not our poetic side coming out, it is exactly how the festival describes itself. And it is right on point with what we know, and our personal experience. It also supports the Charleston and the Lowcountry’s diverse culinary + hospitality community.
And it helps that it is hosted in one of the most beautiful historic part of the city. So, join Kevin and Art In Voyage for a true feast of the senses.

Highlights

Accommodations

The Restoration

The Restoration

Located on Charleston’s iconic King Street, The Restoration is at the center of it all.
In stitching together previously disconnected buildings, The Restoration bridges indoor and outdoor common areas, and historic and contemporary styles, with creative flair. A covered courtyard breezeway, complete with penny wishing fountain, leads from the sleek reception area to the comfortable library, where exposed brick, reclaimed wood beams and flooring add a vintage counterpoint to modern furniture and décor. The color scheme is indigo blue, a style native to Charleston.

Guests are welcome to peruse an impressive collection of Assouline titles (the hotel is the exclusive Southeast dealer for the art and culture publisher). The relaxed atmosphere is refined and luxurious yet not pretentious.
