How a new restaurant will redefine urban dining in the South
A restaurant that opened in downtown Charleston last week has changed the way South Carolinians get their breakfast and lunch.
The rooftop restaurant, located in the historic building at 15 S. Main St., opened to the public for the first time in April.
It serves breakfast and brunch, with sandwiches, salads and more.
The menu changes regularly, but the new menu has a more urban vibe.
The restaurant’s menu also includes a vegan-friendly menu, including the popular eggplant and avocado sandwich with goat cheese, buttermilk pancakes and banana pudding.
“We wanted to take our place in Charleston,” said chef Alex Gee, a local native of South Carolina who has worked at two South Carolina-based restaurant chains.
“It was something that was really important to us to have a place like that.”
Gee said the restaurant has more in common with a restaurant like Café Goya than it does with a traditional restaurant.
“I would say that it’s more a café, a casual place,” Gee told The Hill.
The Charleston restaurant’s owners, Daniel and Jennifer Miller, said their goal was to create a casual restaurant that was not just a fast food chain.
“What we really wanted to do is create a place where people could come in and relax and have a breakfast, lunch or dinner,” Daniel Miller said.
“And that’s what we did.”
The owners said the owners had always wanted to open a new location in Charleston, but had no idea how to make it happen.
“There’s a lot of restaurants in Charleston that are very casual and just open up and serve food and have casual seating, but that’s not what we wanted to be,” Daniel said.
The owners were looking for a place that was going to provide people with an option that was different from what was offered in Charleston.
“That’s what attracted us to Charleston,” he said.
Charleston restaurant owners hope to be open for lunch and dinner again soon.
“When we get to lunch, we’re like, ‘This is a great place to be in,’ ” Daniel Miller told The Charleston Post.
“The lunch will be a good thing because it’s not like you go to the restaurant, you come in here and it’s closed.
It’s a great experience.”
The restaurant is also known for its large breakfast menu.
Daniel Miller and his wife, Jennifer Miller said they plan to open another rooftop restaurant in the future, but this time in South Carolina.
“Our vision for the future is that we want to have this be a regular restaurant,” Jennifer Miller told the Charleston Post earlier this year.
“Because it’s a neighborhood thing.
It can’t just be a quick breakfast place.”
The couple plans to open at least one rooftop restaurant every other year.
Charleston Restaurant Week The city is celebrating its 50th annual Restaurant Week with a celebration in the city’s South Side.
The event is an annual event that includes events like a barbecue competition and a variety of local food events.
It also brings in restaurants that specialize in specialty cuisine.
The goal is to raise awareness of the Charleston area as a culinary destination, and provide a safe space for Charlestonites to come together to enjoy good food and good friends.
