Where to Eat in Charleston Right Now
The gist: Chubby Fish might have a silly name, but it takes seafood very seriously. Partnering with local fisherman, the restaurant is seasonal and uncomplicated, with just a few options to choose from, but each bite is bursting with a flavor and depth.
The food: Some favorites on the rotating menu include the shark tempura sandwich, smoked swordfish curry, and chili garlic shrimp. Finish off the meal with something sweet off the dessert menu, like the blueberry ice cream sandwich or not-fried-chicken from Life Raft Treats.
The cost: Most entrees average in the $20+ range, with some lighter options around $10. Desserts are $6 apiece.
