This is What an Exploratory Food Court Looks Like

Try something new at one of six rotating kitchens

The workshop is Charleston’s exploratory food court. You have the opportunity to try something new at one of six rotating kitchens, where emerging and renowned chefs experiment with culinary concepts.

Current restaurants at the Workshop include:

Pink Bellies – Well-loved by Charlestonians, Thai Phi brings his Vietnamese food rooted in family recipes from food truck to brick and mortar.

Juan Luis – Inspired by his childhood in El Paso, Pitmaster John Lewis offers a Tex Mex spot with a menu featuring enchiladas, puffy tacos, chile rellenos, burritos, frozen margaritas and more.

Merrows Garden Bar – Wine professional Kevin Regan is popping up Thursdays through Saturdays at Workshop, pouring a rotating selection of unique wines that pair well with food and friends. Wines will be updated weekly with a focus on organic, biodynamic and small producers from unique domestic and international regions. Selections will be available by the glass or bottle.

Spanglish Cuban Kitchen – Spanglish Cuban Kitchen offers casual simple Cuban-American cuisine by chef Tomas Prado, serving dishes that he grew up on like fricase de pollo, roast pork over rice, Cuban sandwiches and his mother’s recipe for rice pudding.

Sushi Wa Izakaya – A Japanese izakaya from chefs Kazu Murakami and Chris Schoedler focusing on quality sushi, chirashi, sake and small plates using the best ingredients available
