A small outdoor fire has forced I'On neighborhood favorite Carter's Kitchen to shutter for a few days. Esteemed chef Robert Carter told Eater that the flames were contained to an outdoor deck but destroyed the walk-in refrigerator, several air conditioning units, a few water heaters and the storage facility. Though the equipment was damaged, no one was injured in the accident. Carter stated that the eatery should reopen in time for Charleston Restaurant Week, starting January 8.
The staff at Carter's Kitchen was rather concerned about patrons with New Year's Eve reservations and to keep the celebration merry, were calling several other Charleston establishments to score the diners a coveted table elsewhere for the holiday.
