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.
WSAZ is reporting that Half Time Sports Bar and Grill at the Charleston Town Center has turned off its fryers and closed it doors.
The Point Pleasant location reportedly is doing well and continues to operate.
Ironically, owner Mike Hughes cited “the drive of his staff” as one reason for the closure after several commented on our review in defense of the restaurant.
In other WSAZ news, a new restaurant should be opening on Capitol Street within the next few weeks.
Scott Carpenter will open “The Grill” at 10 Capitol Street, offering seafood, pizzas, and pasta and late night hours.
One day after work last week, I snapped these photos of Cafe de Paris.
Apparantly they are temporarily closed. Who knows when they will resume serving their French-inspired entrees.
(And what happened to the other half of the front door that it is now a sheet of plywood?)
As reported today in the Charleston Daily Mail, Billy’s Restaurant located near Southridge Center is closing, effective today.

This turn of events is somewhat surprising, given the positive feedback received here at Fork You and from our own reviewers. Click here to read our recent review of Billy’s.
Ron may go into full mourning over the loss of those fabulous mashed potatoes.
