Due to COVID-19, the 181 Palmer Restaurant is currently closed. At the Culinary Institute of Charleston, our primary focus is on education and our students. To keep students safe and to continue offering the quality education that our program is known for, we have implemented safety precautions and standards that are becoming commonplace in the food and beverage industry during this pandemic. Following guidelines set by the South Carolina Department of Health, as well as elected state and local officials, we have opened our laboratory kitchens and classrooms to students, but not our dining facilities. We do plan to offer dining services again in the future and appreciate your understanding during this time. Any plans to open will be updated here on the website. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you dine with us in the future. 

Thank you for your understanding.
