Re: “Cool off with beer news Revelry and Holy City, plus Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes openings

If the nice folks at Revelry are doing anything in particular to support the local Gullah community, perhaps the City Paper should mention it. As your story stands, it looks like a classic case of cultural and economic appropriation, or a thoughtlessly named brew at the very least.

Re: “Hotly anticipated restaurant Le Farfalle opens Friday

I'm excited about this.

Also, despite ownership change, Ryan Leaf remains onboard as the maître d'.

Re: “The experimental menu at Harold's Cabin is one of the most exciting in the city

"Even if bison's not your pleasure, the accompanying house-made salt and vinegar chips are reason enough to make the trip."

So, One can infer that delicious fries are not served at this establishment?

Do Gullah folk drink Revelry Brewing's Gullah Cream Ale?

Re: “Little Jack's Tavern looks like a recipe for success

They've done a great job on the renovation. Interior looks like a Jack Dempsey NYC steak house; you feel like you're in a little place in Brooklyn, like that Italian restaurant where Michael Corleone wacks Sollozzo and Captain McCluskey.

On that note, a pasta dish would be nice.

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

I sort of think this is a super unique problem specific to an 8 month period when food critics are new moms. Other than that... perhaps this article could've been a 45 word blurb explaining the utility of a list of restaurant bathrooms that have changing stations?
The vast majority of the population doesn't have to concern themselves with dining out and one of their party shitting themselves.

Also, this is a wildly false premise, "So why not up the service by installing a simple device that allows a meal to be more enjoyable for everyone?" Your tone is off-putting.
A changing table doesn't make eating more enjoyable for me. Why would you presume it would?? Leaving your infant at home would make it more enjoyable for me.
Do high chairs = diapers, anyway?

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

Awww, you guys. <3

It warms my heart to know we have found some common ground.

Thank you, Kinsey, for your help. And, to quote redblood, "it pains me to say that."

Third on agreeing with Ron Liberté -- and it doesn't pain me in the least to say that. Consistent sense-speaker.

High prices and small portions are doing wonders for Charleston's restaurant scene...

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

I second that. Ron scores a rare goal on that one (and I am a parent that accepts that my social life is severely restricted).

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

J D E, that is literally what the writer said: "If a restaurant has a casual atmosphere and offers high chairs, I consider it family friendly. FIG? No." She does NOT expect restaurants that aren't actively catering to families with kids to add changing tables.

Localhutch you have lived a sheltered life, and on what planet are kids forbidden from weddings, funerals, general meetings, and restaurants?

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

Oh no. No changing tables at FIG? Good. I don't want to listen to your crying, screaming kids anyway. Family friendly restaurants should have them, agreed. But I certainly wouldn't expect a fine dining establishment to require them. If a changing table is needed, the child is too young to be there.
