Charleston’s wildly popular Restaurant Week will take place later this month, with 12 participating restaurants seating diners for a three-course meal at a pre-announced, set price from Monday, Jan. 24 through Saturday, Jan. 29, organizers confirmed Thursday evening.
“I’m really happy that we got enough interest and enough willing participants that we’re gonna pull it off,” said Dickinson Gould, president of Buzz Food Service, the wholesale distributor that has organized the annual event since its beginning in 2014.
The decision, he said, came down to the wire with some big names opting out and several new names opting in.
“COVID is still raging locally and restaurants are having both supply issues and staffing issues, so we surveyed past participants and the overwhelming majority said, ‘Yeah we’re in favor of it. We should do this. This will be good.’”
