Forthcoming raw bar/seafood restaurant Delaney Oyster House has officially staked claim on 115 Calhoun Street with a sign declaring its presence. The new addition shows that the latest Neighborhood Dining Group establishment is nearing an opening date.
Housed in a Charleston single, the restaurant will have a six-seat bar and outdoor patio downstairs with the main dining room sitting upstairs, where patrons can also find an outdoor seating area that overlooks Marion Square.
Shamil Velazquez takes over executive chef duties after coming over from Husk Greenville, and Kevin King (formerly of McCrady’s Tavern and Husk Savannah) will be the general manager, while also heading up the bar.
In terms of the menu as a whole, guests can expect the plates to be “shareable, fun and alive,” which should mirror the sought-after relaxed, yet chic environment. It is called the Delaney Oyster House after all, so Velazquez plans to showcase the bivalves while also offering ever changing ceviches and crudos, highlighting the seasonality of the ocean’s bounty.
Look for an opening date soon.
