By now, you’re probably heard the news…We’re expecting! A new member of the Charming Inns family is just months away from hatching.
Charleston, meet Kitchen 208, your [soon-to-be] favorite breakfast and lunch spot on King Street, outdoor patio seating and all. As its name suggests, the restaurant will call 208 King Street home, nestled between Charming Inns’ corporate office and our 45-room Fulton Lane Inn.
The crew behind Kitchen 208 are familiar faces on Charleston’s hospitality scene and members of the Charming Inns family. Developing Kitchen 208′s fun, whimsical menu are Executive Chef Marc Collins and his long-time Sous Chef Matt Pleasants of Circa 1886. When Kitchen 208 opens its doors, Pleasants will take the helm as Chef and Manager.
Providing leadership and further concept development are Mark Severs (General Manager + Sommelier at Circa 1886), Rick Widman and Linn Lesesne (Owners of Circa 1886 + Charming Inns.) Known for renovating and restoring some of Charleston’s most iconic buildings, Joe Schmidt’s (of Evans and Schmidt Architects) plans are breathing new life into Kitchen 208′s 100-year-old building. We can’t wait to show you around.
Today we’re sending some Kitchen 208 love to our pals at Gil Shuler Graphic Design (our logo, image and ‘swag’ masterminds) – AND – to our main man Woody and his team at Blue Ion, who have been rocking out on a website design to debut very, very soon.
Enjoy the first look at our logo and get excited for all that ‘great fare and fresh air’ coming your way. Have questions? Give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org.
