22 May Charleston City Paper Story “Triangle Plans To Triangulate In Mt. P”
Grassfed burgers, outdoor dining, Sun. brunch
by Stephanie Barna
Triangle Char and Bar, one of West Ashley’s most popular hangouts, has announced an expansion. They’ll be opening a second location in Mt. Pleasant at 1440 Ben Sawyer Blvd., replicating all of the things that make the West Ashley restaurant so lovable: open-air dining, grassfed burgers, craft beers on tap, and a big Sunday brunch with lots of hangover-curing mimosas.
The new space will have six roll-up garage doors, a big patio, and graffittied walls. The expansion is a testament to the solid concept (and food) behind Triangle. When Triangle first opened in 2006, they weregoing for a steakhouse vibe, but the food was missing the mark, and they struggled to get it right. Enter the grassfed burger concept, a simple focus with great results, and Triangle found its sweet spot. A spot so sweet that it’s worth exporting to Mt. P. Owners Skipper Condon and Scott Long expect the new restaurant to be open by early June.
