Geechee Girl Rice Cafe CLOSED

Valerie Erwin opened Geechee Girl—about a mile away from its current location—in 2003. Chef Valerie runs Geechee Girl with the help of her four sisters. Alethia, who manages the dining room, left a job in finance to work full time at Geechee Girl. In addition to Alethia, there is Michelene, who handles catering sales, Lisa who writes the newsletters and Alexandria who, despite a full time job in the finance industry, can be counted on to help out in an emergency. Valerie and Alethia were taught to cook by their father, Alexander. Valerie distinctly remembers making dinner when she was eight. Although she had a life long love of food and cooking, Valerie did not originally intend to enter the field professionally. In fact, she majored in politics at Princeton University with an eye toward public service. But after getting her first restaurant job at The Commissary in 1979, she was hooked on the restaurant industry.
