Eating is a pleasure in the South Carolina capital these days, thanks to chefs, farmers and artisanal purveyors who feed an insatiable hunger for anything fresh, local and delicious. Columbia offers a bounty for enthusiasts--places like the urban farm City Roots, the all-local farmers' market Soda City and the array of community supported agriculture options. For exquisite dining, the city's options are as variable as its influences.
