Bistro 217, a Pawleys Island landmark for fine dining in a chic and attractive atmosphere, will welcome guests on Tuesday, Jan. 21 to a “Dining For a Cause” event, which will benefit the early learning program of Miss Ruby’s Kids.
Located in the heart of Pawleys Island, Bistro 217 offers an array of delicious choices of seafood, steaks and pasta. The cuisine is described as Southern and Pacific Rim due to the extensive and varied expertise of Chef and Co-owner Adam Kirby. His food is expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Chef Adam enjoys preparing bistro entrees, because he is not stuck with just one theme. He can vary the menu with seasonal specials so, as the produce changes and the fish catch changes, the menu does too.
Lunch offers favorite soups and appetizers, a large selection of delicious salads, and a variety of specialty sandwiches including the Bistro Burger and the BLT, along with entrees Pad Thai, and Fish Tacos to name a few items from the extensive menu. The wide and varied dinner menu features such favorites as Braised Short Ribs, Seared Scallops, Herb Encrusted Grouper and the 217 Eggplant Treasure Chest. Bistro 217 also offers specials each day, keeping the customers favorites and adding seasonal items. Not to be missed is Chef Adam’s homemade ice creams, made fresh every day, and a delicious end to a perfect meal!
Co-owner Anne Hardee, who was born into an established restaurant family, wanted to create a “unique, eclectic atmosphere” for her consistently fine establishment. Bistro 217 recently renovated the restaurant and upgraded the indoor dining area by doubling the size of the bar and adding an additional 60 indoor seats. The al fresco bar and dining area is a comfortable and casual place to spend time with family and friends while enjoying Chef Adam’s delicious fare.
Lunch is served from 11 – 4 and dinner from 5 – 10. Bistro 217 is located on the west side of Route 17 just south of the Hammock Shops. Reservations can be made by calling 843-235-8217.
Bistro 217 joins a number of area restaurants in “Dining For a Cause” by offering a portion of their day’s proceeds to support the work of Miss Ruby’s Kids, an early childhood literacy program that was founded ten years ago. The organization works with two and three-year-old children and their parents/care givers in the home and continues to support the children when they reach school age through the volunteer education mentor program.
Miss Ruby’s Kids looks forward to welcoming friends and neighbors from the community who will dine on Tuesday, Jan. 21 to show their support for the early childhood learning program and to thank Bistro 217 for its participation.
