On Forty-One, Chef Brannon Florie’s Mt. Pleasant restaurant, will finally open this Saturday. According to our records, the space has been in the works since Oct. 2012, but was delayed while Florie started The Granary. Now On Forty-One appears to be done, and to make its debut the restaurant is catering a Rock the Block party.

A tweet says the restaurant (1055 Hwy. 41 Ste. 600) will open at 11 a.m. this Saturday and serve drinks and appetizers. Perhaps guests will get to try dishes we’ve seen on the restaurant’s online menu, including chicken livers, hushpuppies, wings, barbecued shrimp, and fried oysters. 

As to whether this is the official opening, we suspect that will likely be Monday. We’ve put in a call to On Forty-One and will update this post with more details when we have them. 

UPDATE: On Forty-One will officially open for service tonight, Mon. Nov. 3, at 5 p.m.
