CIC Grad Ellis Grossman Opens Black Bean Co. Restaurant

The Black Bean Co. occupies an attractive new space at 116 Spring St. just west of Rutledge. Grossman describes it an an "energy food restaurant where what you get will fuel you for the day!"
Susan Cohen of The Charleston City Paper says that "the menu is broken down into several categories, our favorite being the 'Good for the Soul' section with items like the Spring Street (chicken or turkey with hummus, tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh tzatziki, and sprouts). Thanksgiving Joy also has a certain appeal with its combination of turkey, mixed greens, cranberry dressing, sprouts, and fresh mozzarella. Vegans get their own section with eight wraps that range from the Ginger Palmetto (heart of palm, mixed greens, tomato, cucumber, sprouts, carrots, banana pepper, and tofu) to the Festival Wrap (black beans, jasmine rice, zucchini, squash, and avocado). Grossman also has plenty of salads to choose from and a handful of intriguing specialties of the house: fresh spring rolls, California roll, gazpacho, wheat grass shots, ginger mint lemonade, and pasta salad."

The Black Bean Co. serves breakfast from 8-11 a.m., with coffee, espresso, cappuccino,yogurt, berries, muffins. Munchies include biscotti and tasty vegan cookies. It is open from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. seven days a week. Black Bean delivers. The menu is online at 843.277.0990. The restaurant participates in the CHAMP dining card program.
