The String Bean first got its start eight years ago as a small Deli, sandwich shop, and catering place. Owned by Chad and Katie Hutcheson, The String Bean slowly grew to become a full-service restaurant with on and off-site catering, a full seafood and butcher shop, and an award-winning beer and wine bottle shop. The restaurant focuses on serving classic, Southern cuisine with just a touch of flare. The portions are large and generous, so no customer leaves with an empty stomach. With their constant access to a rotation of different fresh and unique ingredients, the menu changes several times a year to reflect that. One of The String Beanís most popular menu items is the Big Green Monster. The dish consists of Parmesan breaded green tomatoes fried to perfection then stacked with spicy pimento cheese and drizzled with a whole grain honey vinaigrette. The String Bean also offers daily lunch and dinner specials in addition to their regular menus. Something unique the restaurant does is grind all their burgers in-house at their butcher shop. The Cow-Pig is one of customersí favorite burgers consisting of 60% Certified Angus Beef and 40% apple smoked bacon ends seasoned and ground together. The blend makes for an ultimate bacon cheeseburger. The restaurant serves brunch on Saturdays that is extremely popular amongst customers as well. Often times The String Bean will even bring in live music during brunch that is always eclectic and unpredictable to keep guests on their toes. The String Bean has even been awarded the Wine Spectatorís Award of Excellence in 2013 and 2014. In 2015, they achieved an even higher award, the Best of Award of Excellence for the amazing selection wines they provide by the glass and bottle. Since The String Bean is not only a restaurant, but a retail store as well, customers are able to buy wines at retail price instead of marked up restaurant prices. There are over 700 different bottles of wine to choose from. The String Bean also offers great beers in addition to their wine. They maintain a good mix of international world-class beers and national, regional, and local craft beers. The String Bean carries as many local breweriesí craft beers as possible in order to support local communities and businesses. They even rotate their draft beers on a consistent basis so their customers always have something new to try every time they stop by. On top of all that, The String Bean operates as a full-service catering company as well. Anything from small business box lunches to weddings of 350 people, The String Bean will cater. They offer full-service on and off-site, which means they will set up the food, serve the food, and clean up afterwards. Reservations are recommended for dinner, especially on Friday and Saturdays and also for Saturday brunch that is always wildly popular. The String Beanís mission is simple, ìWe want to feed you good food, we want you to enjoy yourselves, and we all want to have a good time with you while we do it!î The next time youíre in the neighborhood, be sure to give The String Bean a try for a delicious meal and unforgettable experience!
