Is it us, or is the energy in Charleston off the charts right now? From Spoleto to graduations and vacation, our city is booming with activity, and we can’t get enough of it!
As for us? We’re staying busy at Eli’s Table. Last weekend, we unveiled two new summer cocktails: The Blueberry Margarita and White Peach Sangria. We’re pleased to report they were a big hit, so look for them on our Happy Hour selection from 5-7pm. Or, tune in to Lowcountry Live tomorrow at 10am and watch Chef Brett McKee and one of our amazing bartenders make the delicious libations live.
In other news, we have both a Wine and a Vegan dinner on the books for June! More on that later…
And don’t forget–we have live music on the courtyard each weekend, so stop by and see us. Have a great week, and we hope to see you at Eli’s Table!
Chef Brett McKee and the team at Eli’s Table have been busy working on some new additions for the menu. The result? Delectable!
Here’s a sneak peek of one of our favorite additions—Summer Salad— made with watermelon, tomato, cucumber, red onion, fresh basil, and a mint and citrus vinaigrette. It’s perfectly refreshing—just what we need for those balmy Charleston evenings on the patio.
Look for the rest of the new additions here.
We look forward to seeing you on the patio!

Chef Brett McKee has partnered with four local chefs to offer a five course vegan dinner on Sunday, April 22. The dinner will start at 5 p.m. and will feature the amazing culinary stylings of Elaine Hursen, Cynthia Huggins, Marie McGuirk, Mickey Brennan along with Chef Brett. Eli’s is accepting advance booking only for this special event and half of the tickets have sold already. Call Eli’s Table at 843.405.5115 to make reservations.
Mickey Brennan has been in the food business since he was a child playing in his parent’s restaurant in Grand River, Ohio. His early start in the restaurant gave inspiration for college experiences ranging from Mountain Chalets in Switzerland to the premier resort in the Ozarks of Missouri. After college when he received his BA in Hotel Restaurant Management at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA, Mickey returned to the Cleveland area to take on running his family business. It was an honor to be side-by-side with his parents and family for almost 10 years before he decided to hone in his skills by continuing his education. He earned a French Culinary degree from California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, CA in 2005. Prior to moving to San Francisco, Mickey and his wife, Caroline, had been dabbling in organics and living foods. Mickey chose to do his externship work in culinary school at Cafe Gratitude which is an all organic, vegan cafe featuring mostly raw dishes. The inspiration from this experience and the growing desire to raise the level of health in the world are the foundation of where Mickey is today- gratefully serving his community healthy, organic, vegan and great tasting food and juice at The Sprout in Mount Pleasant.
Cynthia Huggins is a Long Island, New York native. She lives in Hanahan with her husband and daughter. She goes to The Culinary Institute of Charleston and graduates in May. Cynthia has been a vegetarian for 12 years and has been making vegan desserts for the past 5 years. She is currently working at Saffron as a Pastry Chef. She hopes to show how delicious vegan desserts can really be!
Elaine Hursen has lived in Pittsburgh by birth, DC by grad school acceptance, and Charleston by choice. She is the Founder & Managing Director of Carolina C.A.R.E. (Community Animal Reform Education), the Volunteer Coordinator for the Charleston Marathon (benefiting the Youth Endowment for the Arts), a Board Member for the Charleston Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association, and a Run Buddy with Louie’s Kids. Previous work has been in the fields of psychology, nonfiction writing, and personal training, and she is a former sponsored endurance athlete. She lives on James Island with her rescued Boxer/Bully mix, Cushi.
Marie McGuirk hails from Sherman, Connecticut. She practiced law for nearly 20 years in Massachusetts before making the move to the Lowcountry. She is currently the Director of Education and Outreach for Lowcountry Law Office on Aging, Mental Health and Disabilities. Ms. McGuirk is a breast cancer survivor, active triathlete, and mother of 7. She and her husband live in Mt. Pleasant. Ms. McGuirk learned to cook at an early age, as her maternal grandparents kept a one acre garden. She is the owner of Picked Last for Gym, which focuses on helping families transition to a healthy life style.
Tonight, we’ve got the Gino Castillo quartet on the patio and we’ll have Oscar Rivers on the patio over the weekend. Be sure to make reservations for the patio – it fills up quickly.

If any or all of the above are true, be sure to come into Eli’s Table for dinner soon. After polling some of his fans on his personal Facebook page, Chef Brett McKee has permanently added a sinfully good, 6 layer chocolate cake with mocha butter cream icing to the dessert menu at Eli’s Table. Add a shot of ice cold milk and you have a dessert worthy of the most devout chocolate fan.
And, if you are thinking about coming into Eli’s this weekend, don’t forget we have jazz on the patio every Friday and Saturday evening from 8 to 11 p.m. The weather outlook is perfect this weekend and the Oscar Rivers band will be entertaining our guests both nights. Make reservations now – 843-405-5115.
