Charleston chef John Zucker recently announced that Purlieu, his third concept, will open this spring in downtown Charleston.

Zucker (right) is already a fixture in the Holy City thanks to his restaurant, Cru Café, and catering company, Cru Catering. For his new project, Chef Zucker will team up with Executive Chef Jeff Williams and Beverage Director Jacob Fuhr.

The rotating menus at Purlieu, also known as P237, will highlight European-inspired flavors and dishes such as Ouefs en Cocotte, Chicken Liver Mousse with Crème Sherry, and Braised Lamb Neck with Herb Dumplings.

According to a press release, Purlieu will “pull inspiration from traditional European cooking, as well as the culinary traditions in the Lowcountry.”

The restaurant is named “Purlieu” to pay homage to the definition – “a piece of land on the edge of a forest,” as well as the Lowcountry dish, pilau, which is pronounced “per-loo” in Gullah culture.

Purlieu will be located at 237 Fishburne Street in downtown Charleston’s Westside neighborhood. Upon opening, Purlieu will serve dinner nightly and expand to offer lunch and brunch services at a later date.

    Cru definitely is the best restaurant in the entire south. Service is outstanding, kitchen is spotless and organized and service and Maurer d’ do their best to make you feel as though you you’re in your own home. It’s terrific. It opened some 16 years ago and instantly became THE place to be seen. Nothing leaves the kitchen unless it appears peperdect. The food is outstanding and cooked to perfectiong I highly recommend this restaurant. Once you eat here you’ll want to come back every no gut for this delicious food.
