Port Royal home to become burger joint

Published Friday, December 23, 2011   |  266 Words  |  

A Port Royal home is being converted into a sit-down restaurant, as former Panini's Cafe owner Nick Borreggine starts a new venture.

Fat Patties is expected to open this spring at 831 Parris Island Gateway and serve up about 18 types of handcrafted burgers, he said. The twist is that patrons choose from five types of patties -- grass-fed beef, half bacon and beef, shrimp, turkey, or black bean.

The restaurant will also make its own ice cream for hand-dipped ice cream sandwiches, Borreggine said.

Construction began this week and will rev up after the new year. When everything is done, the 1,200-square-foot home will have been expanded to about 3,400 square feet.
