Zero George Street Rates & Reservations

Zero Café + Bar

Zero Café + Bar

Our culinary team is as passionate about food as they are about service and hospitality.  Our dedication to the culinary arts has earned us recognition as a Top 5 Foodie Hotel in the World by Condé Nast Traveler.   Led by Chef Vinson Petrillo and his culinary team, our fare features locally grown and seasonal ingredients which have been thoughtfully paired with a curated list of small production, boutique wines and craft cocktails.

Petrillo has a passion and appreciation for natural, local ingredients infused with his contemporary American Style.  All of his dishes are elegantly prepared in the Zero George professional display kitchen, located in the property’s original circa 1804 carriage house.  The seasonal menu features a variety of small plates, compelling dinner specials and wine parings. The a-la-carte menu is approachable, hyper-seasonal, and features the freshest herbs and vegetables from the on-site kitchen garden.  Furthermore, the Zero George team is proud to support local farmers and fishermen by utilizing top quality products available in Charleston.

Zero Café + Bar is open every Tuesday through Sunday from 5 pm to 10pm with Happy Hour nightly from 5 -7 pm.  For our specials, reservations or more information, call 843.817.7900.
