Cannonborough/Elliotborough restaurant Chubby Fish hasn’t even been open a week, and excited seafood fans are posting their praise on Instagram and rating the eatery on Yelp. Industry vets Geoffrey Shyatt and James London spent two years remaking 252 Coming St. and creating the menu, so neighbors are curious to check Chubby Fish out.
An open kitchen is nestled in the nautical-themed (but hip) dining room. Full-length blue velvet curtains drape the windows and reminders of the sea fill the space. There’s a few cobalt swivel stools at the counter, and the rest of the dining room is wooden tables and chairs.
When asked what makes Chubby Fish different than the other ocean-centric restaurants in Charleston, Shyatt told Eater that his team’s commitment to local seafood and telling the story of Lowcountry fishers is front and center for the eatery.
