Opal continues to hold its ground as the go-to spot in the northern reaches of Mt. Pleasant. The modern Tuscan decor and a menu that fuses fresh American and Mediterranean cuisine give diners a chance to experience a big night out without breaking the bank. A respectable charcuterie and cheese list, a handful of handcrafted pastas, and summer entrées like crispy chicken breast with arugula, tomatoes, fennel, prosciutto, and vincotto anchor the menu. The filet with Yukon gold potatoes and barolo sauce has been a favorite since the beginning, along with the veal marsala and pork chop ribs both served with flavorful mushrooms. A handful of worthy craft beers and an extensive wine list help spice up the night. And let’s not forget the legendary salted-caramel gelato: to die for. —Eric Doksa Dish (Summer 2013)
