The Macintosh Chef Jeremiah Bacon tells the Charleston Restaurant Buzz how the McIntosh evolved as Chef Bacon has been looking at this upper king street location for about 3 years and his partner Steve Palmer has been eyeballing this space for about 6 years so this spot was definitely on their radar for a good while.Even though the building is a little smaller than what they were looking for there are plans to add a patio out back .
But this 1881 building has so much history and charm with it’s exposed brick ,antique wood and steel duct work its certainly a complement to the Charleston Old World architectural charm. Chef Bacon describes the Mac as an upscale Tavern, part bistro,part pub that will give customers a local feel. As with many of the newer restaurant designs the kitchen is open which is nice, but does add a little noise to the dining experience.
Chef Bacon Has always strived to use as many fresh local ingredients as possible in his dishes and the menu changes almost daily
Open for dinner, late night dining and Sunday brunch, the Macintosh brings a taste of homegrown cuisine to Charleston, offering a soulful menu inspired by Charleston-native and executive chef, Jeremiah Bacon. Bacon’s local-first philosophy and long standing relationships with Lowcountry farmers and purveyors creates an original menu of classic and seasonal favorites.
