Attention ladies who lunch and men of Meeting Street — Cafe Gibbes unlocked the doors yesterday to feed art patrons and regular citizens alike. Located in the Gibbes Museum of Art, the Beaux Arts space is open to anyone who is hungry (you don’t have to be a member or have a ticket to dine at the new eatery).
The menu from former Sweeney’s chef Joseph Jacobson offers selections of salads, including smoked whitefish or Beaufort shrimp, soups, small plates, like a butcher board, and pressed sandwiches like the Wadmalaw Angus with shaved local beef, Burden Creek Dairy chevre, caramelized onions, arugula, and a side of jus. Full menu found here.
Cafe Gibbes sits at 135 Meeting St. and opens Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10: 00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
