CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A regular of Charleston's food scene has a new offering for the city's hungry. Chef Robert Carter is set to open the doors of Rutledge Cab Co. on Tuesday.
Located in Charleston's Wagener Terrace neighborhood at the intersection of Rutledge Avenue and Mt. Pleasant Street, the restaurant is a continuation of chef Robert Carter's foray into the casual dining market.
"I, along with Brad, am proud to open Rutledge Cab Company and start serving the community and visitors to Charleston," says chef Carter. "Our vision was to create a casual, neighborhood spot where you can grab a cocktail or settle into a booth for a full dinner with friends. I believe we've created this type of restaurant and experience and I can't wait to open our doors."
Originally a gas station, the building later served as D's Grocery.
Rutledge Cab Company's menu features charcoal-grilled steaks and seafood, grilled pizzas and grilled wings as well as variations on classic sandwiches including a Reuben and turkey melt.
The restaurant also serves one of Charleston's only chef-inspired, all-day breakfast menu. Other menu highlights include a shredded lamb pizza with goat cheese, toasted pistachios and fresh herbs; beer-poached spiced shrimp with pickled onion and lime; RCC French onion soup with rye croutons and gruyere; a shrimp-cake sandwich on traditional bánh mì bread; the Fillin' Station charcuterie platter; a smoked pork chop with peach relish; and a classic burger.
Rutledge Cab Company is open daily and begins dinner service on Jan. 22 at 5:00 p.m. Shortly after opening, RCC will start all-day service at 10:00 a.m., with late-night dining as well as brunch service on Saturdays and Sunday.
