Charleston industry vet Brooke Warden told Eater back in July that she wanted to bring classic regional Mexican cuisine with her new venture Pink Cactus — and she’s only one day away from unlocking the doors.
Pink Cactus, at 101A Spring Street, originated from Warden’s love of Mexican food and travels to Oaxaca. According to the press release, chef Jeremy Paige has experience from Empellon and Gran Electrica in New York City.
The menu ranges from carnitas tacos to lamb barbacoa to duck manchamanteles (a Oaxacan mole).
Before the big opening at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 8, have a look around the restaurant here.
Pink Cactus can seat 40 and is currently for walk-ins only.
The restaurant will have dinner service but hopes to add lunch in the spring. Pink Cactus opens Tuesday through Thursday, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday, from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
