After Almost 10 Years, the Macintosh Calls It Quits in Charleston

There’s a promise of something new at 479 King Street though

Just announced via press release, Charleston new American restaurant the Macintosh will serve its last plate during the brunch service on Sunday, March 7. The establishment’s restaurant group, the Indigo Road, will retain the space at 479 King Street for a new concept.

Indigo Road managing partner Steve Palmer says that he is sad about the closure but excited for the future. He’s grateful for all the employees and patrons that have graced the door of the Macintosh. He also says he’ll miss the bone marrow bread pudding, a signature item from the menu.

When Palmer and chef Jeremiah Bacon opened the Macintosh in late 2011, farm-to-table cuisine wasn’t as widespread in Charleston as it was now. There was no the Ordinary, the Grocery, nor Edmund’s Oast. In the past decade, it seems like every other restaurant dotting King Street took a swing at new American cuisine.

Palmer says he’s proud of what he and his team accomplished at the Macintosh.

As for the new restaurant, he’s pretty tight lipped, but looking at his other establishments, here’s what we think not to expect:

  • Steakhouse: Oak Steakhouse on Broad Street is an Indigo Road property
  • French: Brasserie le Banque will be Indigo Road’s newest restaurant to open in Charleston
  • Sushi: O-ku is well established on King Street as Indigo Road’s Japanese restaurant
  • Italian: Indaco already has that covered for Indigo Road
  • Cafe: Mercantile & Mash is from Indigo Road in the Eastside neighborhood

There’s plenty left to pick from. What will it be?
