The idea behind Leaf was to create a restaurant that would stand apart from the rest on many levels. The renovation of 15 Beaufain Street began with four main goals in mind: demonstrate simplicity in both food and setting, provide a comfortable atmosphere for guests, blend the indoor and outdoor dining spaces, and offer it all at a terrific value.
Simplicity should never be mistaken for a lack of quality. The simplicity of the menu at Leaf is designed to let the food speak for itself. We use high quality ingredients and strive to use locally farmed ingredients whenever possible.
A comfortable atmosphere is a must for any successful restaurant. Leaf was designed to be a destination for everyone. Neighbors, locals, tourists, business people, students, and families are all welcome and the staff at Leaf will make every effort to ensure that our guests feel at home.
The unique manner in which Leaf has blended the indoors with the outdoors adds to the overall dining experience. The patio, shaded by a beautiful elm tree is the perfect spot to enjoy live jazz and a glass of wine with friends. Both the dining room and bar have floor to ceiling glass doors which open to bring the outside in, and create a spacious open-air dining environment. This seamless blend of inside and outside dining cannot be found anywhere else on the peninsula.
Above all, Leaf is a place that puts a premium on value for the customer. From the menu to the wine list, we work hard to offer drinks and dishes of exceptional quality at affordable prices. From the beginning, we wanted Leaf to dispel the myth that you had to spend a fortune to have a great dining experience in Charleston. We believe that we have.
We invite you to come and experience Leaf. Please join us for delicious food, friendly and personalized service, and a one of a kind dining atmosphere. We look forward to seeing you!
