Maverick Southern Kitchens has nixed plans to open a fourth Charleston area restaurant.
The company today announced its project at The Boulevard, a mixed-use development on Coleman Boulevard, was undone by a series of construction delays. Construction of the restaurant was set to begin last September, but “major building changes were needed to accommodate it.” The renovations were completed and approved in mid- January.
Around that time, the property was taken over by a new owner, who forecast the building wouldn’t be ready to host the restaurant until summertime.
“When we learned the process was delayed an additional four to five months, we decided the restaurant could not wait that much longer,” the announcement quotes Maverick’s founder and president Dick Elliott as saying.
According to the announcement, Elliott and The Boulevard’s owner mutually agreed to terminate the lease agreement.
In addition to nearby Old Village Post House, Maverick Southern Kitchens operates Slightly North of Broad and High Cotton.
