It seems like just yesterday we were speculating on the opening of The Dewberry Hotel‘s (334 Meeting St.) trifecta of restaurants and — what’s that? It was just yesterday? Welp. Turns out we’ll get to see the first of the hotel’s offerings beginning this Thursday. That’s when Henrietta’s Brasserie will open for business.

An Instagram post from the hotel today shared the news. According to the post, Henrietta’s (named for Henrietta Street where the hotel sits) is taking reservations now and will seat its first customers on Thursday.

Chef de cuisine R.J. Dye, formerly of The Lot, will helm the French-influenced, street-level restaurant which according to Eater, will seat 52 and feature windows looking out onto Marion Square. 

“The concept for Henrietta’s takes cues from contemporary French brasseries. The menu is inspired by classical French cooking, but with a lighter, more vegetable driven touch. Seasonal, local ingredients, in-house butchering, and a wood-fire grill also shape the menu. The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner,” Eater’s Erin Perkins reports.

Still no word on the status of The Dewberry’s controversial rooftop cocktail bar, The Citrus Club. But if we know Charleston’s Board of Zoning Appeals like we think we know them, that’ll be a big no-go for skyline sipping in the formal Mendell Rivers Federal Building.  

Henrietta’s will be open for dinner Tues.-Sat. from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
