The ‘Breakwater Threesome’ Departs for Greenville

Manager and Chefs, Donna,  Gary, and Beth of the popular Breakwater Restaurant downtown are all heading off to Greenville to start a new  Breakwater restaurant there.  Sous chef Kris McGowan (a Greenville native) and his wife Sunny are going with them.  They will all be missed. Good luck in the new venture!  I’ve heard good things about the new chef at Breakwater, Ryan Blanton, who is introducing lots of delish specials.

 

Buffalo Wild Wings will be opening next to Bojangles in the coming months and Jimmy Johns Gourmet sandwich and sub shop will be opening in the old Rita’s next to Moe’s in Town Center.

 

For those of you looking forward to the opening of a new pub in the old Breakwater space on West street, I’m afraid your wait has been in vain.  The backer has pulled out and taken the bar stools and beer taps with them I have been told.

 

The Port Royal Pasta company is open for lunch starting at 11:30 this week. Tues.-Sunday.  Also I’ve heard very good things about the brunch on Sunday at the Tooting Egret.  10-3. $15 price fixe for all their delicious items including lemon ricotta pancakes and stuffed french toast. Don’t forget Fiori upstairs where Allison, (one of everyone’s fav waitresses from Breakwater), is doing really beautiful flower arrangements for your home, gifts or weddings.

 

Lowcountry Produce, from Lobeco, whose products are in the very trendy Dean and Deluca gourmet food chain will be opening a flagship store in the old City Hall space across from City Java in October.  They will have all their fab products and also offer some grocery store items. Finally we can hopefully buy a quart of milk downtown again without having to drive all the way to Lady’s Island!
