How to Watch

Watch Southern Charm on Peacock and the Bravo App.

On August 10, Craig (who had previously hinted at a new Manhattan-based business via his Instagram Stories) shared a video announcing a forthcoming restaurant, Carriage House. “Coming soon this fall,” Craig wrote. Austen shared the same teaser clip to his Stories, adding a new detail about the location. “Been [waiting] to announce this one!” he wrote, tagging Craig as well as the restaurant’s owners/operators Chris Maier, Philip Testa, and Jordan Andino. “I’m super excited to be a part of this new venture coming to the West Village this Fall!” On the August 11 episode of their Pillows and Beer podcast, Craig confirmed that he and Austen had a “new restaurant” in the works. 

According to Gotham Magazine, the estimated opening is currently mid-October and the restaurant “will offer a relaxed yet vibrant fine dining ambiance with an exciting menu keeping diners on their toes.”

The food will include “reimagined childhood classics and dishes from the bygone era" such as "'peanut butter and jelly,' duck TV dinner, and tuna 'casserole,' flipped on their heads and elevated with high-quality ingredients and French technique,” Gotham explains. “Think foie gras, chicken liver and berry, roasted duck plated in compartments (TV dinner–style), and tuna sashimi, daikon, and wonton.”

Gotham reports that the eatery will feature “three separate rooms” that offer “different dining experiences, including a chef’s tasting menu that combines fine dining with a high energized atmosphere for a unique and unforgettable dining experience.”

Watch Southern Charm on Bravo Thursdays at 9/8c and the next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.
