Two Charleston locals are partnering to bring a "casual, funky breakfast joint" to the Charleston community this summer. Vicious Biscuit Co. will serve “fork and knife” biscuits, biscuit sandwiches, build-your-own Bloody Marys, and local craft beers in the Mt. Pleasant building previously occupied by the Boulevard Diner.
Michael Greeley and his wife Carly launched the company as a catering operation in early 2017. With the help of Joshua Lambert - a former traveling chef - and a few of his business partners, the brick-and-mortar restaurant should open in late spring/early summer.
Guests can expect several signature biscuits like the Ranchero (left), served with black bean spread, panko-breaded avocado, pico de gallo, and a sunny side egg; the Flamethrower, served on a cheddar and jalapeño biscuit with spicy fried chicken, white cheddar, candied bacon, spicy mayo and “cowboy candy”; and the Scotlyn, a cinnamon cream cheese stuffed biscuit deep fried and topped with strawberry jam preserves, maple syrup and homemade lavender vanilla bean whip.
Biscuits will also be served as stand-alone items that can be customized with a self-serve jam and butter bar.
Vicious Biscuit Co. will look to highlight locally sourced ingredients — seafood, free range eggs, and Geechie Boy Mill grits, etc. — in its dishes, and will offer some lighter fare options like seasonal salads, fresh fruit plates, yogurt, granola, and more.
Guests can also enjoy a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar, mimosas, and local craft beers to complement the food menu.
Vicious Biscuit Co. will be open seven days a week, and will have seating for approximately 90 guests with indoor and outdoor dining.
