It’s no surprise that Covid-19 has forced the food service industry to scramble to find ways to keep the doors open. Fortunately for us, we can still order the local Charleston food we know and love via curbside pickup.
Here are 4 awesome Charleston restaurants offering curbside takeaway (and a small feature of their really cool logos)!
Fuel is one of the first restaurants I remember coming to when I first moved to Charleston. Their spacious dog-friendly outdoor patio makes for an awesome place for a beer or margarita and some tacos, shrimp salads, and chips & queso. (Order your takeaway here!)
After digging around, I’m not sure who designed the logo, but if feels like a Fuzzo™ or Jay Fletcher design (anyone know who designed this?). I love the symmetry of the wings, the simple illustration style of the bird, and the modern clean type (Futura?). Very vintage and Draplin-esque!
Huriyali is one of Charleston’s hidden gems. Their awesome bright colors draw you in from the sidewalk and their Organic Specialty Bowls & Smoothies keep you coming back. (Order Your Takeaway Here!)
The bright colors of their interior and exterior design are super unique, but his beautifully illustrated peacock and hand-lettering (Connor Lock, is this you?) really bring home this brand aesthetic.
If you love slow roasted brisket, smoked baked beans, and home made pickles piled high on a paper lined tray, Lewis BBQ is for you. It smells incredible from the parking lot, so you know how awesome it’s going to be. (Order Your Takeaway Here!)
This cool little wine, craft beer & cocktail, and charcuterie bar on King St. is definitely a great place to stop in for a huge selection of wine and small tasty plates on their rotating menu. (Order Your Takeaway Here!)
Okay, okay, so I designed this logo during my stint at Blue Ion, but I still love the way it captured the history and story of their really cool and unique brand. The distressed brick walls and reclaimed wood tables and light fixtures were begging for a vintage yet upscale logo.
The Take Away (No Pun Intended)
This is a strange time for everyone, especially the food service industry. Help support them by ordering curbside pickup or delivery from Uber Eats and Doordash. I can already taste my next margarita on the Fuel patio!
