Brasserie Gigi serves food all day and into the night in a lively, casual French atmosphere. Join us daily for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch prepared by Brasserie Gigi Executive Chef Frank McMahon.
As a student at the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America, Chef McMahon's combination of passion and perseverance earned him the Most Likely to Succeed nod from his peers. He graduated from C.I.A. with honors and earned a spot in the kitchen at Le Bernardin, one of the world's premier seafood restaurants, under acclaimed Chefs Eric Ripert and Gilbert LeCoze.
"The simplicity of the flavors of Le Bernardin-it's what I still strive for today," says Chef McMahon.
In 1999, Hank's Seafood Restaurant in Charleston, S.C., opened with Chef McMahon at the helm and was named one of America's Best New Restaurants by Esquire magazine. Hank's Seafood Restaurant was voted Best Seafood Restaurant in Charleston for 15 straight years by readers of the Charleston City Paper.
In April 2014, Chef McMahon opened Brasserie Gigi, which "ought to make Charleston proud, since it's a spotless reflection of the city's culinary mores," according to the Post & Courier Food Writer and Critic Hanna Raskin.
Ms. Raskin describes Brasserie Gigi as offering "thought-out plates that elegantly convey exuberance" and "skilled dishes" including the monkfish bourride, potato and leek soup, steak salad, and "an excellent shrimp Provencal."
