Joe Pasta will reopen Friday, March 15 at 4:00 PM after a small fire damaged the restaurant February 26. Known for affordable Italian specialties and sidewalk dining, Joe Pasta has anchored the corner at King Street and John since 1998.
"While the fire was a definite setback, it's just another bump in the road on Joe Pasta's long lasting journey. We're working hard to reopen bigger, better, stronger than ever," said Joe Pasta owner Harrison Edelson. Edelson is known in the community for his support of Chief Gregory Mullen's Responsible Hospitality Group, the Muscular Dystrophy Association and charities served by the Cooper River Bridge Run Taste of the Race.
In January, Joe Pasta's much-loved bartender Serjei Cahuantzi was killed in a car accident on I-526 by an alleged drunk driver. His loss has been widely felt in Charleston's food and beverage community.
