Located on a historic corner of East Bay Street within sight of Charleston Harbor, Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar serves up fresh, sustainable seafood in a timelessly stylish space. With exposed brick walls, a long bar, and the coolest oyster shell chandeliers we’ve ever seen, the place is the sleek, shining antithesis to cheesy seafood-serving tourist traps. Chef Stephen Ollard, a Johnson & Wales grad, has filled the menu with Lowcountry classics like she-crab soup, perfectly fried seafood platters, and briny pilau. Start off with their shrimp corndogs for something a bit different, or just choose a selection of raw oysters from the day’s suppliers — that might include bivalves from local waters all the way to Washington, the Gulf Coast, and Massachusetts, and you’re welcome to order just one of each. Paired with a glass of bubbly, it’s the perfect indulgence. —Erica Jackson Curran Dish (Winter 2013)
