Loyal Patrons, Employees Say Goodbye to Cypress

The final charcuterie plate

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

After 16 years on East Bay St., fine dining staple Cypress locked the doors this past weekend. Many fans of chef Craig Deihl’s fare came out to share one last meal and documented their visits through Instagram with kind words for the restaurant.

The farewell came after TJ Parsell, President of Hospitality Management Group, Inc, announced last week that the building at 167 East Bay St. was under contract. Parsell stated, “It was a difficult decision. We have owned this building for almost 20 years and are incredibly proud to have built and shared a restaurant that has touched so many guests over the years. However, the time is right for change. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this wonderful space.”

The guest and staff in the Cypress building on Sunday, May 28, posted photos of final charcuterie plates, lavender martinis, and one last wasabi tuna.
