New Restaurants in Charleston this Summer 2017
Downtown (and Uptown) Charleston has seen a slew of new restaurant openings this summer. As you know the dining scene is very competitive and ever-changing – new restaurants really need to bring their A-game to compete. Here are some new options that have opened from July-present. Give them a try and let me know what you think. Rooftops included. Did I miss one? Probably, so please let me know. Have you tried one – what did you think? I have already started making my way through this list and will be sharing my experiences with you soon!
Opened in July 2017:
Cuban Gypsy Pantry (141 Calhoun Street) Chef Will Vivas is serving a wide variety of Cuban empanadas, sandwiches, entrees, and deserts. Originally a food truck that has expanded to a permanent location. The food truck will (thankfully) also remain in operation.
Ice and Pan (567 King Street) Enjoy Thai-inspired rolled ice cream, fruit teas, boba teas, slushes, and smoothies.
Ink n Ivy (565 King Street) Open for lunch, brunch, and dinner and late night serving "Authentic American with Southern twists". Includes a Rooftop Bar.
Pour Taproom (560 King Street) Self-serve brewpub on the 9th fl rooftop inside the Hyatt Place/Hyatt Home. Try any or all of 70 craft beers, wine, and cocktails on tap – serve yourself and pay by the ounce. Also has a great variety of pub games to play – corn hole, darts, etc.
Opened in August 2017
The South Seas Tiki Lounge (23 Ann Street) While it might be a slight challenge to find, enjoy exotic cocktails in an outdoor Tiki Bar environment. In the former location of Wise Buck Smoked Meats
Slider Gold (in The Workshop, 1503 King Street Ext) Visiting chef Bryan Emperor is offering "Japanese sliders, savory snacks and seasonal sides from the Far East" in this upscale food court curated by Butcher and Bee. Other culinary offerings in The Workshop include Bad Wolf Coffee, Slice, Co., Pink Bellies, Sambar, and Juan Lewis. Certainly something for everyone.
Opened in September 2017
Edmund's Oast Brewing Co (1505 King Street Ext.) Located right next to The Workshop, offering a production brewery, taproom, 100+ seat restaurant with a wood-fired pizza oven, a room dedicated to a charcuterie production, and a Polish smokehouse
