Chef Damian Ambs leans on his camaraderie with local farmers and bakers to populate Triangle Char and Bar’s menu of contemporary American fare with local, seasonal produce, and grass-fed beef. Decadent bar snacks such as fresh-popped popcorn glazed with truffle oil, sea salt, and parmesan ($3), inventive egg rolls stuffed with shrimp and grits, avocado, or pulled pork and collards ($8.50), and house-made hummus atop a grilled portobello cap ($7.50) kick off the culinary proceedings, and sound a gustatory trumpet blast that heralds the coming of 13 grass-fed beef burgers. The Plain Jane ($9.50) festoons a juicy patty with familiar fixings—lettuce, tomato, onion, and cheese—whereas the General Lee ($10) tops the succulent flame-smooched burger with pimento cheese and caramelized onions. Tender pork loin and ham reunite on the Cuban sandwich ($9), which dresses the succulent meats in swiss, mustard, and pickles for an international pairing more fun than a U.N. white-elephant gift exchange. A sextet of tacos, such as the mahi-mahi ($9), houses zesty trimmings, including fresh, house-made coleslaw and chipotle sour cream. Diners can wash down comestibles with a craft beer, chalice of wine, or fresh-made jumbo cocktail.
Housed within a former filling station, Triangle Char and Bar’s West Ashley location surrounds feasters in a modern and eclectic eatery, and the Mount Pleasant venue regales eyes with décor fashioned from repurposed wood pallets, tables hewn from plywood, and walls covered with graffiti art. Guests can relax amid each restaurant’s warm interior and colorful artwork during the cold winter months and enjoy fresh air and sunlight in the spring, when the eatery’s resident groundhog deems it time to open the wall-scaling garage door.
Triangle Char & Bar
When guests bite into a Triangle Char & Bar burger, they’re met with a leaner patty than is normally served at pubs. That’s because the meat is composed entirely of dry-aged, grass-fed beef from the local Hill Creek Farms, resulting in a heartier, fresher-ground beef patty. That beef is then topped with the likes of caramelized onions, hummus, or pork belly, which guests can wash down with a rotating array of craft beers. In addition to burgers, the menu boasts 10 taco varieties, fresh and seasonal salads, and housemade hummus. It also includes "The Skinny"—a collection of healthy items such as bbq salmon and spaghetti squash.
Now spanning two locations, Triangle Char & Bar has its roots in a repurposed Avondale filling station where the garage doors open in warmer months for alfresco dining. The newer location in Mount Pleasant boasts edgy design, with corrugated steel walls, graffiti paintings, and flash mobs performing on the hour.
