Cherished Meeting Street restaurant Spero will lock the doors this Saturday, July 21. On Monday evening, July 16, chef/owners RJ Moody and Rob Laudicina dropped the bomb that the plucky little eatery would shutter. Posting on Facebook, the duo said:
This Saturday July 21st will be our final service. It’s with heavy hearts and a clear conscience that we have come to this decision, and it wasn’t easy. If y’all are around this week, swing through and say hey. We’d love to see you.
Spero opened at 616 Meeting St. on March 3, 2015 with a menu of beef tallow biscuits, pork fat crostini, and pan roasted porgy. The restaurant became known for killer sandwiches, bread tastings, crisp fried chicken, creative small plates, and a sense of humor.
The owners told the Post and Courier that they wanted to concentrate on their families and life outside of the restaurant.
