North Charleston burger joint Sesame, brought to you by the Five Loaves Café crew, is bringing its gourmet burger creations to West Ashley. Owner Casey Glowacki says they've been transforming a space next to Target in Citadel Mall and hope to get some traffic from moviegoers at the new Citadel theater. Expansion has always been in the plans, he says, but they were waiting for the right opportunity and space.
That space, of late, has been a revolving door, with a couple different restaurants opening and closing in the last few years, most recently Baja Bistro. Hopefully, Sesame, with its big and loyal following, will find great success in this location.
In addition to the delectable burgers, gourmet sandwiches, and extensive import and specialty beer menu, Glowacki says this Sesame spot will serve milkshakes. Exciting news for milkshake connoisseurs. The new restaurant will also have outdoor dining.
Glowacki hasn't ruled out the idea of expanding further to other cities like Savannah, but for now is focusing on the West Ashley location. The restaurant is set to open Friday, Dec. 18.
