CHARLESTON, SC, October 15, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- For the staff and owners of the Charleston-based restaurant phenomenon known as Eli's Table, it appears as though fall is a time for rediscovering old favorites. As the establishment prepares to celebrate its two-year anniversary, guests are offered a few new dishes, as well as some of the classics that made countless locals and visitors to Charleston fall in love with r Eli's Table in the first place.
According to a recent article
posted online by the Charleston Hospitality Group entitled "The History of Our Table," Eli's Table has a very interesting history indeed. The establishment was named for none other than Eli Mustafa, the son of Charleston-based restaurateur Sam Mustafa. Although the family ties are evident in the name of this restaurant, its family atmosphere becomes apparent the moment guests walk through the front door.
According to the article by the Charleston Hospitality Group, many of the dishes at Eli's Table are named for legendary figures from South Carolina's rich history. Featured in the article is a delicious chicken wrap dubbed the Mary Hays McCauley, which is named for the renowned female who, interestingly enough fought in the American Revolutionary War alongside General George Washington himself. This delicious wrap, which is a favorite among the staff, is adorned with feta cheese, local pecans, and cranberries and bound in an exquisitely paired sun-dried tomato tortilla.
Another favorite lunch item at this establishment is the Blackbeard. This generously stuffed croissant pays homage to high times on the high seas with its innovative take on a classic ham and cheese pairing. To the delight of those who order it, the Blackbeard brings on board crispy fried green tomatoes and a zesty chipotle aioli.
Also featured on the menu at Eli's is the elegantly named John Rutledge, which was invented in honor of the Palmetto State's first official governor. This historically themed sandwich features a large helping of delicious prime rib, kicked up a notch with vine-ripened tomatoes, bacon, and Atlantic smoked salmon. Few other restaurants in all of Charleston feature this deep-sea delicacy in such a special way.
According to the wait staff at this restaurant, customers are constantly delighted by the many creative names of some of the regular menu items. "I heard a lady remark the other day that she felt as though she had learned more about South Carolina history by dining here, than on her tour," remarks one server jokingly.
Eli's Table is sure to continue making history with its creative takes on old favorites.
Although Eli's Table is still technically a brand new restaurant, it has already become an old favorite among natives and frequent tourists of Charleston, South Carolina alike. In fact, the establishment won a Diner's Choice Award in 2013, a feat that few other restaurants are able to pull off in only two years after opening. This outstanding location offers a unique yet entirely approachable menu, utilizing only fresh and local ingredients. This amazing restaurant offers an unforgettable breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner menu, as well as a wide selection of handcrafted cocktails and bar bites for guests during happy hour.
