 1262 Remount Road — Our Brick and Mortar!

We are so excited to move into our brick and mortar restaurant, located at 1262 Remount Road, N. Charleston! The additional space will allow us to expand our menu and serve more guests — all without folks having to chase us all over town! Plus, the building will serve as the commissary for our food truck, which will be very convenient. Although the food truck will essentially be off of the road through the summer to allow us to hire staff and focus on getting the restaurant right, we plan to start scheduling the truck again for lunch and dinner services starting in October 2019.

Interior photos of the new place coming soon!

Chef Stephen Thompson

Chef Stephen Thompson

Chef Stephen Thompson

For Chef Stephen Thompson, the art of preparing food is more than just a job or even a passion—it’s a way of life.  Thompson has spent almost his entire life in the kitchen, and this is where he feels the most at home.  “I don’t have any worries there,” he says.  “I just focus on what needs to be done.”

With a culinary degree from the Art Institute of Charleston and years of hands-on experience in a variety of different kitchens and atmospheres, he is excited to be the Executive Chef at Prohibition, where he has been able to really let his creativity shine.  Owners, James Walsh and John Teevan obviously know talent when they see it.  They did everyone a huge favor when they gave Thompson carte blanche to do whatever he felt inspired to do for their new menu.

Chef knew that great cuisine had to start from the roots—quite literally.  So, he went straight to his childhood friend and now farmer, Stephen Walters of Walters Farms.  It always helps to have a special relationship with the source of your main ingredients and these two are like peas in a pod when it comes to caring about great produce.  Walters personally grows and harvests everything on his 5-acre farm in Saint George, South Carolina, then makes the 45-minute drive to deliver it to Thompson.   The vegetables he picks in the morning are often found on a customer’s plate later the same day!

Private Events

Pinchos Platter

Pinchos Platter

Yes, Dashi is available for private events!  We'd be happy to cater your wedding, party, anniversary, meeting or other event!  We can pull up the truck for a casual event or work with you to develop a menu for a more ornate affair.  Feel free to give us a call or send an email to discuss your needs.  Here are some of our policies and more information:

Food Truck Fees

In most instances there is a minimum charge of $1,500 for an event.  Total event cost will vary based on number of attendees, menu items selected and style of service.  Additionally, the following factors may increase the cost of an event: (1) our typical length of service is 3 hours not including set up and breakdown.  In the event we are required to arrive more than 45 minutes prior to service or stay more than 30 minutes after the end of service, an additional labor charge will be added; (2) If the venue has a long, narrow driveway without a spot to turn around at the service location, necessitating an exit by backing the truck up for a significant distance, an additional charge will be added; and (3) We have found certain venues to be inhospitable.  Accordingly, we impose a $500 surcharge to serve at the following location: The Stables at Boals Farm.

 Celebrating Local Artists Poster Series

Missy Poster JPEG.jpg

We are pleased to introduce the Celebrating Local Artists Poster Series, with our first commissioned poster created by local artist, Dashi friend and superfan, Missy Johnson! Two hundred of these limited edition posters were printed and all were hand numbered and signed by Missy.

Posters are for sale for $20 each and proceeds of the sale will be donated to a local charity of Missy’s choice — Hallie Hill Sanctuary in Hollywood, SC.

We hope to have a series of these posters designed by local artists over time, commissioning a new, unique artwork on a seasonal basis with the proceeds going to a local charity of the artist’s choice. Our commission per poster is $750.

If you’re an artist and think you’d be interested in designing a Celebrating Local Artists Series Poster, please send us an email at dashichs@gmail.com!
