Workshop Restaurant History

Last update: 12/8/20

Workshop, the "fancy food court” on the Pacific Box & Crate site, has tallied an impressive and diverse list of restaurant concepts since it opened in May of 2017.

The project was designed to house restaurant concepts from three to twelve months each. It's hard enough to keep up with all of the Charleston restaurant openings and closings, so I compiled this list of current and former Workshop tenants. A few eateries have graduated from the shared kitchen and dining space to their own standalone locations, while others have ended their run for one reason or another. Either way, they were all apart of this exploratory venture.

Current Lineup

  1. Ma'am Saab
  2. Saha
  3. Sushi Wa Izakaya
  4. Blazing Star Cafe
  5. Killer Brats
  6. The Bar @ Workshop
  7. South Philly Steaks
  8. Sino Tacos
