Celebrated chef debuts second restaurant in Charleston, S.C.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (January 22, 2013) – Chef/owner Robert Carter and managing partner Brad Creger are excited to introduce Rutledge Cab Company (RCC), opening tonight for dinner service.

Carter and Creger saw a need for a casual, neighborhood restaurant on the upper peninsula, and worked closely together to conceptualize Rutledge Cab Company. The restaurant is Carter’s eclectic neighborhood restaurant; it is a nostalgic concept serving craft beers, an innovative approach to cocktails and classic service. Located in Charleston’s Wagener Terrace neighborhood at the intersection of Rutledge Avenue and Mt. Pleasant Street, the restaurant is a continuation of Carter’s foray into the casual dining market. From the marble topped bar to the vintage bingo board, the space reflects the charm of the old neighborhood while serving the patrons of this up and coming community, which is conveniently located close to the downtown Charleston bridges and Interstate-26 for customers throughout the greater metropolitan area.

“I, along with Brad, am proud to open Rutledge Cab Company and start serving the community and visitors to Charleston,” says chef Carter. “Our vision was to create a casual, neighborhood spot where you can grab a cocktail or settle into a booth for a full dinner with friends. I believe we’ve created this type of restaurant and experience and I can’t wait to open our doors.”
