Alcove Market Debuts at The Jasper, Charleston
Easton Porter Group debuts Alcove Market in historic Charleston, SC
Alcove Market, a posh café and specialty food market is now open in downtown Charleston with crafted grab-and-go dishes, a full-service coffee program, local craft beers, wines and gourmet pantry products. From boutique hospitality company Easton Porter Group, owners and operators of Zero George Street and Cannon Green, Alcove Market is led by Chef Orlando Pagán, 2022 James Beard Foundation Award semifinalist and executive chef of sister restaurant Wild Common.
“With a menu rooted in wellness-forward and health-conscious cuisine, Alcove Market is designed to bring an upscale, contemporary dining experience to the heart of downtown,” says Easton Porter Group Co-Founder and CEO Dean Porter Andrews.
FRESH AND AL FRESCO FOR ALL
Views of the Cooper and Ashley Rivers in Charleston’s iconic Harleston Village neighborhood frame Alcove Market’s bright interiors and ample indoor and outdoor cafe dining. Chef Orlando’s menu features fresh-pressed juices along with nutritious, balanced cuisine such as avocado toast served on Charleston Gold Rice bread, a rainbow quinoa bowl with house-made green goddess dressing and a breakfast flatbread topped with a poached egg, prosciutto, arugula, caramelized onions and pesto. Breakfast and lunch are served seven days a week, with a comprehensive coffee program inspired by local coffee roaster King Bean.
Alcove Market is located on the first floor of The Jasper, the renowned 12-story landmark, luxury residence developed by The Beach Company.
“Alcove Market is the ideal addition to not only The Jasper’s office, lifestyle retail and residential offerings, but also to the Broad Street neighborhood,” says Dan Doyle, Chief Operating Officer at The Beach Company, The Jasper’s developer. “We are fortunate to have Easton Porter Group, a well-respected restaurant operator in the Charleston area, delivering such a high-quality concept for our neighbors, residents and guests to enjoy.”
Easton Porter Group partnered with New York-based and James Beard Award-nominated restaurant architecture and design company Glen & Co. to curate a refined coastal-inspired interior. An expansive, cerulean paneled, and marble-topped bar greets guests with overhead greenery, natural wood finishes, and colorful ceramic tile that transports customers to the Italian coast.
“Working with the Easton Porter Group in bringing Alcove Market to The Jasper has been an absolute pleasure – there is nothing better than creating spaces for people to bond and be transported via hospitality and food. Coastal Mediterranean influences abound in this market-driven café; the blue decor, tiles, hanging gardens and design provides a fresh backdrop for Chef Orlando’s cuisine and Easton Porter’s unparalleled hospitality,” says Glen & Co. president Glen Coben.”
In addition to the sit-down menu offerings, Alcove Market’s products include notable wines, craft beers, high-end specialty food products including house-made pastas and breads, and branded merchandise such as Hydrapeak water bottles, tote bags, hats and dog accessories.
Alcove Market complements Costa, a forthcoming coastal Italian restaurant and bar from Easton Porter Group opening summer of 2023. Led by Zero Restaurant + Bar executive chef and Easton Porter Group Creative Culinary Director Vinson Petrillo, Costa draws inspiration from regional fare found along the Italian coast, from Liguria to Sicily, paying homage to Petrillo’s Italian heritage and offering unexpected flavor combinations. With a rich background in leading some of New York’s finest restaurants, including Caviar Russe, Abe & Arthur’s, and Prospect, a Michelin Bib Gourmand recipient, Petrillo’s innovative cuisine and technical expertise brings elements of whimsical nostalgia and surprise to each dish served at Costa.
