The group behind Market Street restaurant 5Church will add a new space to its portfolio with the opening of the Tempest in the spring of 2020. Located at 32C N. Market Street, right next to 5Church, the restaurant will offer “upscale seafood” for lunch and dinner.

Top Chef alum Jamie Lynch will be in charge of the menu, and the restaurant groups says to expect “lobster, giant prawn, oysters, mussels, clams, white shrimp and elaborate seafood towers.”

“Our hope is that Tempest will combine top-notch cuisine using locally sourced ingredients with innovative design and outstanding service to create an inspiring dining experience for our guests,” said owner Patrick Whalen.

The 5Church space and the Tempest space were originally the Church of the Redeemer Chapel and the Harriott Pinckney Home for Seamen. The Charleston Port and Seafarers’ Society operated the establishments for about 50 years.

More details on the menu and the space will be available closer to the opening.
