82 Queen is Charleston, SC, is known among locals and visitors as one of the most romantic local restaurants. I have not been very familiar with the restaurant until they came on board for the Palette and Palate Stroll that I organized for the Charleston Fine Arts Dealers’ Association.
Beginning Friday, March 18, 2011, 82 Queen will be expanding brunch service, adding new seasonal menu and live entertainment in the courtyard. Beginning Sunday, March 20, the restaurant will expand weekend brunch 10 a.m.-3 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. The restaurant will modify the lunch and dinner menu to highlight local produce and offer lighter seasonal items. On the entertainment side, an acoustic musician will play in the courtyard 9:30 p.m. until close every Friday.
Another Palette and Palate Stroll partner is Hall’s Chophouse. The restaurant will host a Stags Leap Wine dinner March 22. A reception begins at 7 p.m. with dinner to follow at 7:30 p.m. Reservations are requested. The cost for the five-course meal is $90. Call 843- 727-0090 or visit http://www.hallschophouse.com.
