Black Bean Co. calls itself Charleston’s “premium organic, all-natural, speedy service restaurant.” It’s the creation of Charleston native and Culinary Institute graduate Ellis Grossman, who eagerly offers healthy, ethical food, all at a reasonable price. Black Bean’s wraps roll up a variety of lean proteins, lettuces, and vegetables, fruits, nuts, cheeses, and legumes inside fresh tortillas. There are also healthy soups and salads made with fresh ingredients. And the smoothies are a great option in the summer heat. Chef Grossman continues to serve up the goods from his incredibly popular upper King St. location and out on James Island. There’s now even a Black Bean in Columbia. Cue the American fast-food takeover. —Sam Spence
