Everything at The Establishment begins with well-sourced ingredients from sea and field. We start with great relationships with local fishermen and farmers to ensure that we are always working with top-quality ingredients. Our talented culinary team uses a multitude of cooking techniques to showcase different preparations of these ingredients. In turn, we strive to educate our team about the origins of our food, so they may reveal to their guests the sources of the plates they set before them.
Our philosophy in the kitchen is simple: it's all about blending the flavors that exist already within our culinary components, enhancing and balancing our proteins and vegetables by executing proper cooking techniques and showcasing the freshness of the food we serve with impeccable focus. To ensure that our culinary team has top quality talent we have the highest level of pay in Charleston.
For potential servers interested in our vinous offerings, The Establishment offers unique and interesting varietals that complement the dishes we serve. Our wine list offers tremendous value, allowing guests to pair with their food at a reasonable level of expenditure. Our list also allows our guests to celebrate a special occasion with a rare and unique bottle. Our sommeliers seek out wines that are ahead of the trends in order to pass along to the guest a unique experience at approachable price points. We focus always on finding the right wine to create that moment of bliss when a glass and a dish complement one another in a way that is truly divine. Our restaurant and management team put a great deal of emphasis on continued wine education to ensure a knowledgeable staff that can thoughtfully guide our guests to that moment.
