PUrlieu Food

A former neighborhood bistro and eatery in Charleston, Purlieu pulls inspiration from both traditional European cooking and from the culinary traditions of the Lowcountry. 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. We love discussing our favorite brunches, seasonal dishes, and flavors of French wines.

Purlieu (noun)

1. A piece of land on the edge of a forest.
2. A person’s usual haunts.

Perloo (noun)

1. A steamed rice dish often with meat, shellfish,
or vegetables in a seasoned broth.
