A long-standing restaurant situated in the heart of downtown Charleston will soon be closing their doors.
The Macintosh, which is located on Upper King Street, will officially be closing on March 7th after serving their staple brunch menu to patrons. The restaurant has been in business for over a decade and helped get Charleston’s food scene noticed by tourists and critics alike.
While the COVID-19 pandemic was not the primary reason they chose to close their doors, it certainly played a part in the ultimate decision.
In a statement on the decision to close The Macintosh, Steve Palmer, founder and partner of The Indigo Road restaurant group, said, “The Macintosh’s moment in time has come and gone. Our tastes have changed: We’re just in a different universe now…Sales is the ultimate report card, I believe the restaurant would be in a different place had COVID not happened, but COVID is not the reason.”
While The Macintosh will be closing, the Cocktail Club located above the restaurant will remain open.
