ICYMI, The Granary’s new Coleman Blvd location (835 Coleman Boulevard) officially reopened yesterday! The Granary delivers Lowcountry-inspired American fare featuring seasonal ingredients in an expanded and casual new space. The contemporary restaurant mirrors the inviting design previously staged at Belle Hall with a stylish interior featuring dark wood tables, high ceilings, industrial chandeliers and antique farm stools. New to the concept is an extensive raw bar, a 50-seat bar area and an al fresco dining space out front.
At the helm of the menu is executive chef Brannon Florie, a passionate proponent of local farmers, fisherman, brewers and distillers, who takes pride in celebrating the community. Florie works closely with chef de cuisine Chris Wehking, an honorable companion who uses his extensive science and experiment-oriented background to test his hand at new curing and pickling techniques, leading The Granary’s impressive charcuterie program.
Florie and Wehking have created a menu that boasts a selection of starters, vegetables and entrees featuring familiar and approachable Southern components. Entrée highlights include the braised short rib pot roast, duck Cassoulet, and Shem Creek shrimp and grits, as well as a fried shrimp Po boy and smoked barbecue spiced pork chop. Lighter options include vegetable selections of kale with sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and a roasted vegetable curry cauliflower flatbread. A kids menu is also available.
The bar program, led by beverage manager Roderick Weaver, includes an abundant selection of wine, beer, cocktails and whiskeys. Guests are invited to take a front row seat at the bar for happy hour every Monday through Friday, from 4 to 6 p.m. and enjoy $2 off draft beers, $5 house wines and mules, and $6 select small plates. Overseeing the front of house, general manager Lindsay Lenehan manages day to day operations and ensures quality service throughout the guests’ time at the restaurant.
“Chef Brannon has been a long-time partner of mine and I’m excited for him to be able to show off his capabilities in a great new space,” says Steve Palmer, managing partner of The Indigo Road. “We’re confident in the team we’ve put together and look forward to sharing our restaurant with you.”
The Granary now serves dinner Sunday through Thursday from 4 to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 4 to 11 p.m. On Sundays, guests can indulge in half-priced bottles of wine, followed by a Lobster Roll special every Monday. Sunday brunch is served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will begin in March. For more information, visit The Granary online and on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
