Food is a universal language that brings people together. We celebrate with it. We use it for comfort sometimes. And, that favorite dish or restaurant brings back so many pleasant memories. So, when we hear of one of those favorite spots closing it brings a bit of sadness. And, that’s the case when we learned this beloved South Carolina restaurant closes after almost three decades.
According to Count On News 2, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina’s “The Mustard Seed” announced it’s closing on social media. The post indicated owner Sal Parco plans a retirement, resulting in the restaurant’s farewell. Diners in the Mount Pleasant area enjoyed the iconic spot serving brunch, lunch and dinner for 28 years.
In his post, Parco says of the community and customers, “I am forever grateful to have been welcomed in with such open arms and my gratitude toward you is immense.” And, he further mentioned he felt it was “time to pass the baton.” So, if you’re a fan of The Mustard Seed grab one last meal before it’s gone. The South Carolina restaurant closes this week.
The Mustard Seed website remarks of its humble beginnings with just 7 tables and 3 employees. However, the growth blossomed into a group of restaurants, including Long Point Grill. They describe a cuisine that’s a healthier choice made with fresh ingredients. The menu offers delicious sounding fare from “butterbean hummus” to comforting soups, salads, veggies, inventive handhelds and entrees.
Diners find everything from Pad Thai to seafood and gumbo, too. The Mustard Seed sounds absolutely delightful. It’s no surprise with the care and love put into the concept it lasted so long. So, if you get the chance to visit one last time do it. Find The Mustard Seed at 1036 Chuck Dawley Blvd.
