When Halo owner Geoff Chewning learned the MUSC campus draws tens of thousands of people to potentially feed each day, he wanted to come up with something that would appeal to most of them.
“Who doesn’t like pizza?” he told The Post and Courier’s Stephanie Barna.
Last month, Chewning opened Nimbo Pizza at Rutledge Avenue and Doughty Street, counting on the restaurant’s convenient location to eclipse hospital workers’ interest in the city’s other new pizza options. For good measure, he also hired Richy Kline, whose cooking resume includes jobs at DeSano Pizza Bakery and EVO Pizza.
Kline is making pies he describes as “hand-tossed artisan,” although Nimbo’s menu uses less worldly terminology. Just about every item on the list of pizzas, appetizers, salads and sandwiches has some sort of celestial name, with the exception of cheesecake and a Greek salad.
Nimbo, 161 Rutledge Ave., is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. daily. For more information, call 843-972-3802 or visit facebook.com/nimbopizza.
