Renovation at Circa 1886 Restaurant

Circa 1886 Restaurant, located in the carriage house of the Wentworth Mansion, celebrated its 15th anniversary this January. To honor this exciting time, the restaurant underwent a makeover breathing new life into the 19th century building. The renovation boasts enhancements to every room in the restaurant, from structural changes to design updates. Circa-1886-Bar Designer Pam Plowden took great care in updating the space while retaining the charm, character, and architectural details of the historic space. Inspired by the colors and textures of Charleston, each room has been renovated with a breathtaking new look. Reminiscent of the colors in a lowcountry marsh scene, the restaurant features lighter, more neutral tones, with a few pops of blue and green. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with original carriage house floors and tiled slate surrounding the bar. Diners will find a granite bar top that perfectly contrasts the new color palate in the room. Circa-1886-Dining-Room Architectural lighting, an intricate tiled stone wall, and banana leaf wallpaper compliment the woodwork throughout the restaurant. Three additional highly requested booths have been added to the popular wine room. The booths now feature contemporary fabric and natural textures while carrying the new color scheme throughout the restaurant. Circa-1886-Wine-Room Showcasing classic Charleston scenes, black and white photographs are displayed throughout the restaurant. From broad landscapes of Charleston to textured images of sweetgrass and Spanish moss, the photographs are peaceful and serene. Circa-1886-Gold-Rice-and-Popcorn-Cake In addition to the new look, Chef Marc Collins has launched a new menu. The Carolina Gold Rice and Popcorn Cake with Blue Crab and Rock Shrimp is the perfect way to start your dinner. Early entree favorites are the Fried Catfish with Truffled Mac and Cheese and the locally sourced Keegan-Filion Pork Chop with Heart of Palm puree. Don't wait to make your reservation.
