The patio is heating up Thursday nights at Eli’s Table

Gino Castillo quartet  Starting tonight and every Thursday night after, the Gino Castillo quartet will be playing on the patio at Eli’s Table. Join us for this amazing quartet featuring Afro-Cuban jazz. According to AllMusic.com, afro cuban jazz is “a combination of jazz improvising and rhythms from Cuba and Africa; it is also known as Latin jazz. There were some hints of Afro-Cuban jazz in isolated cases during the 1920s and ’30s — Jelly Roll Morton’s “Spanish tinge” in some of his more rhythmic piano solos, a few Gene Krupa performances where he sought to include South American rhythms, and even in the Latin pop music of Xavier Cugat. However, the true birth of Afro-Cuban jazz can be traced to trumpeter-arranger Mario Bauza.”

Join us at Eli’s Table for fine cuisine by Chef Brett McKee and dance the night away on our beautiful patio to the amazing music of Gino Castillo.

Chef Brett McKee premieres spring menu at Eli’s Table

This week, Chef Brett McKee premiered his updated spring menu at Eli’s Table. The menu still has most of the dishes that started out on the dinner menu, but has added new seasonal additions to the menu like Panzanella salad – a Tuscan inspired salad of tomatoes, bread, cucumbers, onion and basil tossed in vinaigrette dressing.

Other offerings include some of the dinner items Brett’s guests have requested of him – including his lobster macaroni and cheese and his six layer chocolate cake with mocha butter cream icing and chocolate ganache.

Join us this weekend on the patio for the Oscar Rivers Trio on both Friday and Saturday evenings. Live music begins at 8 p.m and goes until 11 p.m. Stop in for dinner or come by for one of our amazing desserts with coffee or your favorite after dinner drink. Starting next Thursday, March 29th Gino Castillo will be featured every Thursday night at Eli’s Table. Visit our Facebook events page to RSVP and share the information with your friends, but if you want to make dinner reservations for the evening, please call the restaurant at 843-405-5115 or make your reservation on Open Table.
