Industry vets Geoffrey Shyatt (formerly of Scarecrow) and James London (formerly of Le Farfalle) are ready to show off Chubby Fish to Charleston. Opening Friday, June 22, the Cannonborough/Elliotborough restaurant will focus on local fish and lots of it.
The menu includes sections for raw bar, small plates, entrees, whole fish, butcher cuts, meats, and sides. Look for chicken-fried bass collars, barbecue shrimp, local oysters, grouper cheeks, a shrimp roll, and more.
The co-owners of the newcomer recently spoke to Post & Courier about the woes of opening a restaurant in Charleston. According to the timeline, London started looking spaces in May 2016, and it took the team two years and more than $300,000 to build out the space to become a working eatery.
Chubby Fish sits at 252 Coming St. and opens Tuesday through Sunday, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
