Where to Eat in Charleston: The Darling Oyster Bar Wednesday 15 August, 2018

So visiting Charleston for the first time there is a plethora of charming places. The Darling Oyster Bar was one of my favorites. It is a cute seafood place that is literally “darling” with a modern flair to your ordinary oyster spot. My friend Saskia and I got dressed up for this place and had a wonderful dinner!

Blending classical preparations and exciting new flavors, The Darling pays careful attention to local ingredients and sustainability.

I will say before I even tasted the food, I feel in love with the decor. It was like a modern living dollhouse for mermaids. It was very nautical and decorated in my favorite colors of navy blue and aquamarine. The ambiance is very chic and sophisticated for a seafood place. Housed in a lovingly restored, 115-year-old storefront, we strive for “instant classic” status. Grab a stool at the 14-seat raw bar fronting bustling King Street. Settle into a table full of deliciousness. Or perch beside the full-service bar.

Everything about this place is so “darling”
