I received a friend suggestion on Facebook last night: Blossom Deli.
I took the bait and accepted. There were a few wall posts. One, posted by “Blossom Deli” on October 9 said “November 2010… A Charleston Landmark Returns!”. A friend asked for the identity of the new owners, to which Blossom Deli replied: “I can’t be that easy; where’s the suspense in that?”

As I was driving to work this morning constantly switching radio stations to find music instead of talking and failing miserably, I paused at V100 for the local news. I heard that Blossom Deli will be closing their doors this weekend.
Closed for dinner. Closed for lunch. Closed.
This is the second Sohovich restaurant to close. First Billy’s, which was open and then closed and the open and then closed. Now the nostalgic Blossom Deli that reopened under Bill Sohovich’s reign 16 years ago. You’ll recall that recently the Blossom closed for dinner and then again offered dinner on a limited basis with a revamped menu. Is this a sign that Soho’s could be next on the chopping block? I hope not.
This is indeed sad news for Charleston diners.
The Blossom is now open for dinner again, but a bit differently than before.
First of all, they are only open for dinner on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday beginning at 5:00 pm.
Secondly, there is a new, scaled-down menu.
If you go, write in and tell us about your experience. This seems like a great excuse for me to get some Thai Beef and Shrimp. Sounds delicious!
The historic location of the Blossom Deli injects vintage charm into an otherwise ordinary sandwich. Located on Quarrier Street in the heart of downtown Charleston, The Blossom Deli serves sandwiches, salads and shakes to the local workforce for lunch each day. At night, the restaurant is transformed with linen tablecloths and an upscale menu to offer one of the nicest dinners in the area. Read our review of the Blossom’s dinner offerings by clicking here.
