Due to high demand (I mean, just check that thing out ^) Zero Restaurant + Bar has decided to make Chef Vinson Petrillo's juicy Royale with Cheese a permanent menu fixture. 

Served in foil featuring two patties in between mushrooms and onions with a "Kraft single fondue" and shaved truffles, the burger was the cover star of our 2017 Burger Week issue, and will now be making its appearance every evening in limited quantity for $18 at Zero.

In addition to the burger, the upscale George Street bar will be rolling out a new wine and cheese happy hour menu. From 5 to 6 p.m., you can order a combo cheese board and two glasses of wine for only $25. That's a steal, y'all.

With severe weather in the forecast ahead of Friday's scheduled Charleston Margarita Festival, the City Paper events crew has made the tough call to postpone the event and reschedule on Fri. Aug. 3.

Tickets already purchased will be good for the new date, you will not need new tickets. Refunds are available if you're not able to make it on the new date, ticketholders will get an email with instructions.

All other details will remain the same, standard admission to the event is 7-10 p.m.

Once any refunds are processed for the sold out event, additional tickets may become available. Stay tuned for details on how you can score those.

A margarita is great when you're lounging by the water. It's not so great when you're swimming underwater. Here's to hoping for a warm, sunny evening on the Ashley River at the third annual Charleston Margarita Festival on August 3.

Sorghum & Salt introduces new dish benefitting nonprofit No Kid Hungry

Reserve a table today

Posted by Francesca Mathewes on Thu, Jul 19, 2018 at 12:21 PM

  • Provided

Dine for a good cause at Sorghum & Salt now through the end of August.

The Coming Street restaurant is partnering up with Grow Carolina and Rosebank Farms to offer a new dish — Potatoes-Black Garlic-Cheese Curd-Chive Oil-Cheese Whey — from which a portion of the proceeds will go to benefitting No Kid Hungry, a campaign under the larger anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength, that works towards eliminating hunger in the United States by providing meals for children from low-income families and teaching their parents to cook affordable, healthy meals.

"It's always been my goal to go beyond offering foods to be enjoyed within my restaurants," said owner and executive chef of S&S Tres Jackson in a press release. "To me, being a chef is also an opportunity and responsibility to impact my community in a positive way through food outside of Sorghum & Salt."

Even a small contribution can go a long way — just $25 can provide a whopping 250 healthy meals for a child affected by hunger. You can donate directly through Sorghum & Salt’s campaign here, or, if you’re feelin’ generous and hungry, reserve a table at the restaurant on Resy or by calling (843) 872-6393.

The owner of Gilroy's is reopening the Upper Deck space as King Street Bait and Tackle

Dive Bar Dream Lives On

Posted by Mary Scott Hardaway on Thu, Jul 19, 2018 at 11:51 AM

Fish trophies, check. Busch neon, check. - BRIAN WOLTER

  • Fish trophies, check. Busch neon, check.
Brian Wolter, the Gilroy's owner who holds the lease to 353 King St., assured us back in February that when Upper Deck closed, some high-end chichi joint would not be taking over the beloved dive's space. Today, Wolter filled us in on the details of what exactly will be going into the bar above Gilroy's and trust us, you won't be disappointed. "I've always had a fascination with fishing," says Wolter. "Whether I'm in New York or Colorado (his home state) or Louisiana, I'll go into a bait and tackle shop and the shop has slowly been turned into more of a bar. I've always liked that theme."

The new bar run by Wolter will be called King Street Bait and Tackle, should open mid-August, with a menu of good liquor and canned beer — "a good assortment, just about any beer you like" — at reasonable prices, plus bar food and any item from the Gilroy's menu.
Oh good, LARGE rainbow trout - BRIAN WOLTER

Wolter says they went in and deep cleaned UDT, replacing the tables and chairs and adding half a dozen TVs just in time for football season. As for karaoke, well, Wolter isn't sure just yet if that beloved tradition will continue, but it might. Decor-wise, Wolter says think Tattooed Moose, but creatures of the sea on display as opposed to stuffed, antlered mammals.

With all the new bars and restaurants opening in the city, and specifically on King, Wolter says Gilroy's is a dinosaur. "I couldn't name two rare bourbons," says Wolter, referencing an Upper King concept he saw featured on TV. "But I can serve you two hot dogs and a beer for $5."

By now, he might have you hook, line, and sinker. Check back for updates on King Street Bait and Tackle's official opening.
