New King Street hot spot The Macintosh opened its doors on Wednesday, September 21 for a preview party benefitting the Gavalas-Kolanko Foundation. Foodies have been eagerly awaiting a peek at Chef Jeremiah Bacon and Steve Palmers' newest brainchild, a chic restaurant from The Indigo Road boasting homegrown cuisine rooted in the spirit of the Southern palate.

Guests crowded into the sleek, beautiful space, located beneath its “sister lounge” The Cocktail Club, and the bar quickly filled up with partygoers studying the cocktail menu. Servers circulated a number of savory bites, which were repeated snatched up by curious gourmands.

The gorgeous space quickly became packed with media mavens, the who’s-who of Charleston’s cuisine scene, and supporters of the Gavalas-Kolanko Foundation, all of whom seemed enamored with The Macintosh.

The preview party was buzzing until the last, when many patrons reluctantly made their way out to King Street... Or upstairs to The Cocktail Club.

It was a gorgeous evening benefiting the Gavalas-Kolanko Foundation, an organization established by Nicholas B. Gavalas and Dr. Ronald Kolanko to assist students with disabilities with their secondary educational costs, as well as increase support and awareness of their needs. All of the proceeds from the evening’s ticket sales went toward providing college scholarships to students with physical disabilities in the Lowcountry. Since 1999, the GKF has awarded 52 scholarships to students at the College of Charleston and Charleston Southern University
