A welcoming neighborhood bistro and eatery Purlieu pulls inspiration from both  traditional European cooking and from the culinary traditions of the Lowcountry. Situated on the edge of Charleston’s Westside neighborhood, the name “Purlieu” pays homage to both the French definition – “a piece of land on the edge of a forest,” as well as the Lowcountry dish, pilau, pronounced “per-loo” in Gullah culture. The rotating menus highlight seasonally dishes and flavors and are paired with a curated list of French wines.
