Welcome to our photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater photographers visit some of the city's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, Butcher & Bee at 1:30 a.m. on a Saturday.
On Friday and Saturday evenings, well into the twilight, sandwich shop supreme Butcher & Bee fulfills a very important niche—providing nourishment to the night owls, food and beverage workers clocking out of their shifts and anyone out imbibing. Charleston's dining options are limited after 11:00 p.m., so unless the hunger pangs are gunning for undergrad haven Gilroy's pizza, B&B can offer a more sophisticated menu.
Sometimes, only a double cheeseburger with a side of Buffalo fries will calm those midnight cravings. Here is a look at the restaurant at 1:30 a.m. on a recent Saturday, as seen through the lens of Eater Charleston photographer Rémy Thurston.
