We Flew South pop-up owners Marc and Elizabeth Hudacsko will open their first restaurant in the downtown space previously occupied by Uneeda Sicilian. Slated to open in spring 2021, Berkeley’s will bring “classic American fare with a focus on chicken cutlet sandwiches, meatball parmesans and French dips, alongside fresh salads, shareable appetizers and more refined entrees” to the North Central neighborhood at 624 ½ Rutledge Ave., a press release said.
“This is the culmination of a lot of hard work,” the Hudacskos wrote on social media. “It’s a dream come true for us. We are grateful and humbled by the love and support Charleston has shown us over the years.”
After arriving in Charleston — or “flying South” — from New Jersey in 2016, Marc and Elizabeth secured jobs at Little Jack’s Tavern before starting their own pop-up, which was known for cheesesteaks, Reubens and “red sauce” dishes reminiscent of classic Italian restaurants they frequented in New Jersey.
Several of these favorites will be found on Berkeley’s menu, and takeout will be a focus with “Berkeley’s Boxes” catered towards families, friends and offices. After renovations are complete, Berkeley’s will open in spring 2021 for lunch and dinner six days a week.
