CURE Opens on James Island With a Classic Steakhouse Menu

New, 2 comments

Oysters, shrimp cocktail, Cornish hen, and beef, lots of beef.

The mysterious eatery CURE unlocked the doors last week, and tipsters report that the restaurant has been packed, but not much else is known about the Maybank Highway newcomer. There's a bare-bones Faceback page with chef Kevin Bruntz announcing, "Yes, we're open ...." Bruntz is listed as a chef at Fratello's Italian Tavern, which is said to be owned by the same proprietor as CURE — Richard Tuorto, who also runs O’Brion’s Pub & Grille.

When Eater called, the host told us that the restaurant is open from 4:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m., seven days a week, and that a website is coming soon (though they weren't sure of the URL). He also said lunch and brunch is in the works.

Bruntz posted a photo of CURE's menu, and it is full of classic steakhouse items, like a chopped wedge salad ($12), calamari ($8), shrimp cocktail ($10) yellow fin tuna ($24), and various prime cuts of beef. There's also a "From the Rotisserie" section with prime rib, Cornish hen, and porchetta served with grits. If you squint, you can read the whole menu below:
