Owner Perig Goulet, formally of La Fourchette, wanted something more casual for his second Charleston restaurant. As a resident of Charleston for over 20 years, Perig’s desire was to create a place where locals can mingle in a setting reflective of Charleston’s bright, colorful charm.
Guests enjoy a blend of his French heritage with just the right amount of traditional American fare. So, while not exactly a French restaurant, it’s what we like to call French-ish.
Casual, laid back, neighborhood restaurant with a French flare.
Goulette blends casual French dishes like rotisserie chicken and hanger steak with their famous pommes frites accompanied by amazing house made mayonnaise. Traditional American food such as smoked pulled pork and shrimp rolls make the menu an eclectic blend of the dual nationality of its owner.
Born and raised in a small town in Brittany France, Perig learned traditional French cooking from his mom and his older brother Gwenael who was a well known chef in Westchester, NY.
When Perig first arrived in Charleston he was struck by the similarities of the city with his hometown. He has now called Charleston home for over 20 years. And, to make it feel even more like home, his sister Soazig recently relocated to Charleston to partner with him at Goulette.
Born and raised in South Carolina, Kyle is a graduate of The Citadel. While a student he worked his way up with owner Perig Goulet at La Fourchette. Together he and Perig designed Goulette’s eclectic Franco American menu.
