After Hurricane Hugo passed, the building at 492 King St. sat abandoned and devastated.

Gawk at the plush seating, oooohhh at the open kitchen, peep the second-floor event dining room, and ponder the meaning of the button wall.
492 hasn't announced an opening date yet, but keep checking in here for the latest.
