Once restaurants were able to open in South Carolina and allowed to serve customers, people were noticing some of their favorites were remaining shut. Some posted they didn't feel comfortable at the time to open, others posted no updates.
A favorite in the City of Georgetown was quiet and folks here began asking questions.
The restaurant is a Simply Amazing Dish of the Month alumnus and a Taste of Georgetown winner, so it was fitting to wonder why they hadn't reopened.
Well, we have answers.
The restaurant officially transferred ownership on June 12, 2020. The new owner is a familiar face.
Jimmy Hildebrandt, former Root general manager, begins his journey as owner with an awesome culinary canvas and a stout playbook.
His energy, enthusiasm and passion was always on display at the eatery, and he represented the previous owner's vision very well.
Now, he gets his chance to shine.
In a phone call, he said he plans to keep some popular items on the current menu, but wants to revamp it with new dishes and new flavors.
A reopening date has not been set as of yet, but it will be a grand reopening.
We'll keep you posted on our Facebook page with updates.
Congratulations, Jimmy. We know you'll do great.
