Downtown's Petticoats Making a Comeback

Petticoats, the shuttered Queen Street restaurant that billed itself as "elegantly southern," is making an entrance back onto the scene. Post and Courier reporter Warren Wise tweeted earlier today that the restaurant will "reopen in mid-March at 68 Queen St. in downtown Charleston."

The previous incarnation lasted about a year, and was known for its "Old Southern" cuisine. Back in 2011, City Paper wrote, "You'll find classic stuff like friend green tomatoes, deviled eggs, pulled pork barbecue, and plantation quail on the menu."

As for reviews, one Yelper commented, "Don't expect big servings - this isn't a place where they over-serve cheap crap. They obviously put a lot of work into producing elegantly simple classic dishes." Another noted, "Best fried pickles I've had in a long time." Details on who will be heading up the kitchen this time around should be sent to the tipline.
