82 Queen Adds New Food and Entertainment Elements for the Spring

For Immediate Release, March 2011


Beginning the weekend of March 18th, Charleston restaurant, 82 Queen, will be adding several new elements to attract customers for the spring. New additions will include an expanded brunch, a seasonal menu and live entertainment in the courtyard.

Those who have enjoyed 82 Queen’s Lowcountry style Sunday Brunch for the past 29 years will be excited about more opportunity to indulge. Beginning March 19th, the restaurant will expand to a weekend brunch to include both Saturdays and Sundays. Brunch service will begin at 10am each day, an hour earlier than in the past, and will continue until 3pm. The brunch menu will feature several new items including Chicken & Waffles, Country Fried Steak & Eggs and an Ultimate Bloody Mary. The menu will also retain popular items such as the 82 Queen Breakfast. When asked about the decision to expand brunch, Executive Chef, Steven Lusby, said, “We’re really just addressing requests from our customers. Our Sunday Brunch is so popular and there are not a lot of options for Saturday Brunch especially when it comes to outdoor dining.” In keeping with the farm-to-table cooking philosophy, 82 Queen will also modify their lunch and dinner menu for the spring to highlight local produce and offer lighter seasonal items.

On the entertainment side, 82 Queen is adding an acoustic musician to play in the courtyard every Friday night from 9:30pm until close. General Manager, Johnny Williams, commented, “We wanted to give people a reason to stay a little longer and take time to enjoy the spring weather and our amazing courtyard.” Guitarist, Luke Mitchell, will play a mixture of original songs and cover songs to entertain late evening diners as well as those who linger over a glass of wine long after dessert.
