The Hottest Brunch Spots in Charleston, March 2017

492 bar

If you’ve made your way through the essential brunch restaurants in Charleston and still yearn for another mimosa in a different setting, we present this list of the hot newspots servicing the early crowds. To be on the Brunch Heatmap, these establishments must be less than a year old (with some consideration for those barely over the mark or changes in the kitchen). Since brunch is pretty much religion in Charleston, these places will give you a new address to worship at — or cure your hangover from the night before. Stop by one of these selections for mimosas, bloody marys, pancakes, shrimp and grits, burgers, and much, much, more. Go forth and brunch.

Note: Map points are not listed by rank…

1 Butcher & Bee

Butcher & Bee is back with a bigger and better space in the NoMo neighborhood. The restaurant recently added brunch to the rotation, so stop in for shakshuka, chilaquiles, and other interesting takes on everyone’s favorite weekend meal.

2 492

Former Two Boroughs Larder chef Josh Keeler recently joined the kitchen at 492 and brought his famous double patty burger with him. From soft scramble with trout roe to an omelette with potatoes aligot, some of the new brunch items are familiar to fans of Keeler’s work at TBL, but a few differ. When asked about the distinctions, Keeler explained that he thinks there will always be overlap, but now he has the backing of a pastry department, which can offer danishes and fluffy biscuits. Oh, and there’s a Belgian waffle with coffee ice cream.

5 Le Farfalle

Beaufain Street eatery Le Farfalle offers Italian classics like lasagna verde and fettuccine carbonara, as well as a few Southern adaptions like the Tuscan-fried chicken atop a waffle with crispy sage and prosciutto maple syrup.
