Everyone is dying to know about The Rarebit, the enigmatic restaurant that's currently being built out on Upper King Street. According to City Paper, chef Brannon Florie, formerly of 17 North Roadside Kitchen, helped create the menu and got the staff up to speed. But it doesn't seem like he'll be staying on board, as he's opening his own place in 2013.
John Adamson, who seems to be the owner or is at least the person who responds to inquiries at email@example.com, wrote in an email that The Rarebit might open as early as November and will be serving "highly recognizable American cuisine" that will complement the overall concept. But that's all he'd say. More specifically, perhaps, a source told Charleston Magazine's Kinsey Gidick, "it'll be a 60s Louisiana racetrack style bar/restaurant". The dashing rabbit logo on their website and these coasters by J Fletcher Design seems to support that theory as well. If you're one of the aforementioned trained employees or just someone in the know about the decidedly-not-Welsh Rarebit, feel free to tip your Eater.
