About 82 Queen
And so was born one of Charleston’s oldest and most celebrated restaurants … 82 Queen!
Feeling that there was a portion of Charleston’s culinary heritage that was being overlooked, 82 Queen’s original menu featured dishes influenced by the African, French, Caribbean and Anglo-Saxon tastes which permeated the area. 82 Queen’s fusion of these culturally diverse flavors led to the rise of a culinary genre that had been previously undefined – and is now referred to as “Lowcountry Cuisine”. As the years rolled on, 82 Queen adapted and has remained a powerhouse in Charleston's culinary community.
