Basic Kitchen’s Recent Features
BK Salad Project for Green Heart
Big thanks to the Charleston City Paper for highlighting our Salad Project! Starting Mon. July 22, Basic Kitchen introduces the Salad Project, a six-week long summer series that features a new salad every week. A portion of proceeds from this program will benefit The Green Heart Project, a nonprofit that integrates farms into schools to serve as outdoor classrooms, teaching kids about sustainability and healthy living.

Special thank you to our dear friend Maya Ojalvo of MOJALVO for this sneak peek into life at our restaurant! Check out her site for more exciting vids on the CHS Food and Bev Community.
Charleston City Paper recently featured our hero Rita! A snippet highlight: The restaurant's concept is based on honest, local ingredients and healthy choices. You don't get more local than your own courtyard garden boxes. "Her concept really fits with what we're doing at Basic with our local focus. It's about being conscious of what you put in your body," says Chef Wilber. "The garden has really enhanced the space and connects the customer more to their food.”

Thank you Azalea Mag for featuring us in a recent article highlighting our garden and all the positivity it brings to our menu and staff. There are so many reasons we love working with Rita’s Roots but we couldn’t have said it better than BK Owner, Natalie: “Having the gardens on site empowers the cooks in the kitchen to get creative and … creates this ambiance where guests interact with the ingredients that make up their meals on a different level… enabling us to provide really fresh seasonal dishes while supporting our community and supporting our environment. That’s what our core values are all about.”
