For the past three years, the space that once held beloved Italian restaurant Il Cortile Del Re sat empty, until Charleston seafood mogul 167 Raw declared itself as the new owner of 193 King St. The tiny oyster-and-lobster-roll eatery started on East Bay Street as a market for fresh, sushi-grade seafood and shellfish, but shortly after it opened, turned into the ultimate spot for a rosé-soaked lunch or intimate dinner.
167 Raw quickly outgrew its small 289 East Bay St. space, with constant lines around the block, so its no wonder that it would want to expand to a bigger address.
For those who may not remember, Il Cortile Del Re was known for its simple Italian dishes, like crostini with burrata or pappardelle with wild boar ragu, romantic outdoor patio, and laid-back service.
We couldn’t be more excited to announce that we are officially the proud new owners of 193 King Street and will be moving to our new home in early 2019! We are overwhelmed with gratitude for our supremely dedicated team and the unwavering support of our guests. We still love our tiny space at 289 East Bay Street which will remain a part of the 167Raw family–more details to come. Cheers!
