Joe DiMaio mans The Grates of Hell (a beast of a grill) at Stars, a monster of a restaurant with a 1930’s-esque vibe. It’s local but with a New York state of mind. Just about everything on the menu pays a visit to the fire-breathing cooker that’s outfitted with a six-spit rotisserie, an Argentine-style grill, a plancha, and a firewall for direct ember cooking. Steaks are delivered seasoned with the perfect sear. Their seasonal menu has wood-grilled tuna, black garlic baby back ribs, kale salad, whole trout, and a butternut squash risotto. A loud and lively bar hosts more than 15 artisan wines on tap, available by the glass, 500 ml., or 1 liter, and six, mostly local, craft beers are on tap at all times. Early for dinner? No problem. Take the elevator up to the rooftop and enjoy a stunning 360-degree view of downtown Charleston. —Eric Doksa Dish (Winter 2015)
