In the charming town of Mount Pleasant, a new chapter unfolds in the tale of culinary passion and entrepreneurial spirit. Once a dream nestled in the heart of Pawleys Island, the Get Carried Away Southern Market now stretches its wings to embrace a new, lively community. Brian Henry, a visionary chef and businessman, is at the helm of this inspiring journey whose aspirations are as limitless as the flavors he conjures in his kitchen.
Mount Pleasant, with its picturesque streets and a community that thrives on quality and togetherness, has welcomed Get Carried Away with open arms. The town, known for its love of social gatherings and exquisite food, presents the perfect backdrop for Brian’s second culinary adventure. The anticipation in the air is palpable as the locals await a venue opening that promises to redefine the essence of southern dining and hospitality.
Nestled on Coleman Boulevard, in the heart of Moultrie Plaza, the new market is in a family-friendly neighborhood, buzzing with activity. Once the heartbeat of the Wild Wing Café, the space now transforms into a sanctuary of southern flavors, adjacent to the historic Old Village. It’s a strategic choice, aligning with the area’s family-oriented ethos and the landlord’s commitment, Edens, to elevate the community experience.
Mount Pleasant isn’t just a location; it’s a canvas where Brian’s culinary dreams meet the vibrant lifestyle of its residents. The proximity to Shem Creek and Sullivan’s Island and the town’s active outdoor and boating culture adds a unique zest to the market’s appeal. Here, discerning palates meet the authentic tastes of the South, from the celebrated chicken salad to the heartwarming Lowcountry boils and the beloved tomato pies.
At Get Carried Away, it’s not just about food; it’s about creating experiences. The market is a treasure trove of culinary delights, offering everything from homemade casseroles and appetizers to curated meats, seafood, and essential groceries. It’s a one-stop shop for those who cherish the art of hosting, complete with seasonal table-top coverings, elegant napkins, and an array of unique gifts.
But the true jewel in the crown is “The Perch,” an outdoor dining haven where casual meets chic. Here, patrons can savor store-made delicacies and chef-inspired creations under the open sky. As the seasons change, “The Perch” will evolve into a full-service dining experience, becoming a communal hub for meals, laughter, and memories.
Brian Henry’s journey with Get Carried Away Southern Market is more than a business expansion; it’s a testament to the power of dreams and the magic of self-belief. In Mount Pleasant, the market stands not just as a purveyor of fine food but as a beacon of community spirit and southern charm, where every dish tells a story, and every visitor becomes part of a larger family.
