Black Bean Co. calls itself Charleston’s “premium organic, all-natural, speedy service restaurant.” It’s the creation of Charleston native and Culinary Institute graduate Ellis Grossman, who eagerly offers healthy, ethical food, all at a reasonable price. Black Bean’s wraps roll up a variety of lean proteins, lettuces, and vegetables, fruits, nuts, cheeses, and legumes inside fresh tortillas. There are also healthy soups and salads made with fresh ingredients. And the smoothies are a great option in the summer heat. Black Bean recently shuttered a location on West Ashley’s motor mile, but don’t fret. Grossman is still serving up the goods from his incredibly popular upper King St. location and out on James Island. There’s now even a Black Bean in Columbia. Cue the American fast-food takeover. —Sam Spence Dish (Winter 2015)
