Future patio outside 2827 Sherman Ave, NW at Harvard

More info on de Rum Spot coming to Sherman Ave – note opening date is planned for June 1st not May 1st. And if you weren’t excited before – oh my goodness… From an email:

“The new authentic Caribbean street food eatery and Rhum bar will serve many of the menu items from its acclaimed sister restaurant, Cane Rhum Bar in Charleston – hailed as one of the best places to dine in South Carolina.

de Rhum Spot will offer three full levels of full-service casual dining, including an outdoor patio that can accommodate up to 70 people indoors and 53 outdoors. Hours of operation will be 11:30AM – 2:00AM (Sunday-Thursday) and 11:30AM – 3:00AM (Fridays and Saturdays). A soft opening will take place for friends, family & special invited guests, followed by the grand opening event June 1, 2020.

Chef Paul Yellin, also known as “The Rhum Chef,” opened Cane Rhum Bar in Charleston, SC in 2016, and it has since been featured by local and national media as a must-go restaurant for Charlestonians and visitors. A rum connoisseur, Yellin grew up on the island of Barbados, where he learned the history and process of distilling fine rum. He describes himself as a “rum drinker with a cooking problem,” who aims to bring Caribbean food, culture and rum to the world stage. Yellin’s menu boasts sustainable, healthy, well-prepared food, bursting with colors and flavors. Menu favorites include, the jerk chicken, seared tuna and ginger beer-braised pork.”

Ed. Note: I’m told the owner has a new baby so he can’t make it to every community meeting but he welcomes visitors to the space at 2827 Sherman Ave, NW and you can ask him any questions you may have!
