They knew, either firsthand or by reputation, that they were in extremely capable hands. When Charleston opened in 1997, diners were primed for something wonderful. The new restaurant's co-owners, Cindy Wolf and Tony Foreman, were coming off a first success, Savannah, in the Admiral Fell Inn. When Savannah closed, Wolf and Foreman took a chance on a nearby Lancaster Street location.

Starting this Wednesday, Charleston will offer a supper-for-two menu in the bar. Think of it as a way to soak up some of Charleston's atmosphere, and Cindy Wolf's cooking, without committing to the full tasting menu experience. The menu, which will change weekly, costs $100 for a couple. The main course for the debut supper, which is inspired by "Downton Abbey," is a lobster pie, butter poached lobster, Yukon gold potatoes and brandy cream in puff pastry. The appetizer is ham-stuffed mushrooms, and the supper includes a course of Stilton cheese and winds up with a course of mignardises -- think small cookies and petit fours -- served with a Claret ice, a sorbet made with red wine.
