For the 2014 Palette and Palate Stroll, the gallery is partnering with Cypress restaurant. Cypress, housed in a historic two-story building on East Bay Street in downtown Charleston, S.C., opened in 2001. Led by two-time James Beard nominee Craig Deihl, the team at Cypress uses Lowcountry ingredients to showcase Deihl’s signature style. Executive Chef Craig Deihl, recognized as one of the nation’s youngest, talented chefs, infuses classic Lowcountry cuisine of the South with an innovative combination of flavors from around the globe. In 2007, Deihl authored his first cookbook, Cypress, which has immediately received rave reviews from culinary experts.

The menu, which includes dishes such as Crisp Wasabi Tuna with a ginger-garlic glaze and Certified Angus Beef® Filet of Beef with housemade Boursin cheese and Deihl’s award-winning in-house charcuterie program, the Artisan Meat Share, which produces over 80 types of meats, is complemented by a wine list displayed in a three-story wine wall, featuring vintages from well-known to small, boutique wineries around the world and sweet creations by Andrea Upchurch.

In 2013, Andrea Upchurch was named the Executive Pastry Chef at Cypress where chef Deihl makes charcuterie dreams come true. Also, running the sweet side of things at Blossom and Magnolia, Upchurch is pushing the envelope at Cypress a little. “My goal is to play off Craig’s stuff. I want to do desserts that are light and clean,” say Upchurch. She will be serving her sweet, dreamy creations at this year’s Palette & Palate Stroll.
