According to Greater Charleston Restaurant Association spokeswoman Kaili Howard, Carter’s Kitchen plans to start running its Restaurant Week menu when it reopens.
The restaurant’s air conditioning units, hot water heaters, walk-in cooler and a storage unit were destroyed in a Dec. 28 fire. Chef-owner Robert Carter,
who didn’t return a message seeking additional details about the repair process, initially forecast he’d be back in business by Jan. 8.
After reading this post, Carter e-mailed, “We are diligently working with the insurance company to get the scope of work finalized and the cleanup and minor repairs completed in a timely manner. The holiday schedule made for a slow start, but we are in full swing and hope to announce an opening date soon.”
Carter dismissed reports that the restaurant could be open as early as Jan. 21.
Smoked duck pastrami, pork osso bucco and coconut cake are among the items listed on Carter’s Kitchen $40 Restaurant Week menu.
