Fish is one of my favorite restaurants in Charleston. And yes, I have a lot of favorite restaurants here, but Fish is where we held our wedding reception last fall, and every time I go in there I feel a little special knowing that.
What I love most about it is its versatility. It's a great spot for an affordable happy hour, with $1 dim sum and creative cocktails — try the Black Thai lemonade with Gentleman Jack, lemongrass simple syrup, lemon, and Blenheim hot ginger. At night, chef Nico Romo cooks up a menu of seasonal, Asian-inspired food — I recently had a perfect summer meal of scallops with avocado jasmine rice, roasted mushrooms, peas, and grilled watermelon. Then late-night on the weekends, a DJ comes in and the place turns into a raging dance party.
