With the threat of Hurricane Matthew and storm surge flooding coming to Charleston soon, restaurateurs are boarding up the windows and evacuating town. Even Chez Nous, which served the peninsula last night, has closed because vendors are no longer delivering products to downtown. A few holdouts remain — City Lights Coffee informed us they would be open until 11:00 a.m. today if you need a latte on your way out, and Fast & French opened the doors this morning.

Here’s the latest round of plywooded establishments and closures around town. Stay safe out there, Charleston, and let’s all hope for the best.

Locked up tight! Stay safe, everyone. Fingers crossed we can return to normal next week. #hurricanematthew

Cane is temporarily out of commission but we will be right back after this rude interruption from Mathew.
