A local friend took us to this relatively new addition to Charleston dining, one we did not find in the usual listings. We were delighted, first with the impressive 2-story space -- an old bank building at the ungentrified west end of King Street that has been fitted with enormous wooden cabinets for the bar and long pendant chandeliers hanging from 30 foot high ceilings -- and then with the cuisine, as sophisticated as any in New York. Three of us started with a dozen roasted oysters -- they were delicate, served in a vinegary brine and sprinkled with sea salt and other seasonings. Two of us ordered a bass steamed in a papillote or paper; this was truly one of the most memorable dishes we've had. One of us ordered a whole red snapper -- it was moist and tender and easy to debone. We ordered broccoli rabe and fried okra in a delicate tangy sauce. We couldn't resist dessert and were not disappointed in a chocolate torte with hazelnuts and a raspberry sauce. The wine list was limited but excellent. We tried two roses, a Bandol from Provence and an even better Greek rose that had a slight effervescence. I saw one review mentioned it was noisy -- we sat upstairs overlooking the bar and kitchen below and did not notice the noise at all.
