The 70+ seat contemporary Italian influenced restaurants showcases the area’s most untapped asset - the ocean and the view and menu hightlight this incredible bounty.

Another crowd-pleasing chef, Ken Vedrinski, has left Sienna, on Daniel Island, to set up a place in the old Johnson & Wales building downtown (called Ristorante Introdacqua, it should be open by late summer); he combines an Italian sensibility with Lowcountry ideas to make modern dishes like piccata of grouper with a spicy blue-crab marinara. Last fall, he opened Trattoria Lucca, Charleston’s answer to a casual Mario Batali place, on an unlikely residential corner away from the tourist traps, and the natives came running.
