Motor Supply Wins ‘Best Restaurant in Columbia’

Voters in Columbia Metropolitan Magazine’s Best of Columbia 2015 Awards recently chose Motor Supply Co. Bistro as ‘Best Restaurant in Columbia’, a first-time accolade for the farm-to-fork restaurant.

Motor Supply was honored in Columbia Metropolitan Magazine’s January/February 2015 issue with a large photograph featuring General Manager Stephanie Heikila, Owner Eddie Wales and Executive Chef Wes Fulmer, and a charming Q+A with Wales:

Best Restaurant in Columbia: Motor Supply Co. Bistro 

Happiest moment: Closing up one night after I fully purchased Motor, and understanding it was mine.

Most difficult moment: Surviving the Gervais Street sweeping in 1996 and the recession of 2009.

Most exciting moment: Really the last two years … knowing that we can expect to pack the house every evening.

Funniest moment: In early1991 — a staff party when we danced on the bar and wore scallop buckets on our heads.”

Columbia Metropolitan Magazine holds Best of Columbia Awards annually, since 1991, asking Columbia, S.C. residents to vote for the best in local dining, shopping, services and more.
