Many Charleston restaurants and bars are still boarded up after tropical storm Irma whipped through the Lowcountry yesterday, but owners and staff are busy trying to ready the spaces in time for the lunch rush. Many establishments promised to reopen today, but many are without power as South Carolina Electric & Gas works to restore electricity to the state. Here’s the closings we know of so far.
