A new restaurant named Delish Bistro opened this past October on Highway 544.
The restaurant first opened five years ago in Charleston, SC. Emily Floyd, the owner, is an alumna of College of Charleston. She decided to move her restaurant from Charleston to her hometown of Myrtle Beach to attract college students and avoid city traffic.
“It’s good to be close to CCU and Market Commons. We didn’t want to be off the beaten path or on restaurant row,” said Floyd.
To attract younger patrons, the bistro is designed nontraditionally. Menus are provided at the door, orders are received at a bar, and seating is available during the wait.
“As a millennial, I don’t like pushy waitresses, and you don’t have to worry about tips,” said Floyd.
Tipping is available for anyone who wishes to donate to local charities. Once Delish Bistro collects $10,000 in donations, the sum will go towards Meal on Wheels in Conway. Afterward, donations will be accepted for a different charity.
Due to the bistro’s genesis in Charleston, the dishes and décor are inspired by the city. The restaurant boasts of a robust menu and is ready to suit any dietary needs.
Upon my first visit, I ordered the breakfast platter. My croissant was warm and flakey, and the potatoes were perfectly roasted in oil and rosemary. I have visited many breakfast locations in the Myrtle Beach and Conway areas, and Delish Bistro is by far the best I have had.
The bistro is open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The restaurant offers free delivery to any student housing. Students with a CCU or HGTC ID receive a 10% discount.
