After leaving his near decade-long post at Fish, Chef Nico Romo started his own venture in Mt. Pleasant, NICO Oysters + Seafood. The space is stylish and welcoming with covered outdoor seating and brick walls, wood tables, and farmhouse chandeliers. A small bar area wraps around the partially open kitchen and the vibe is at once convivial and chic. As the name implies, the restaurant shines when it comes to seafood. NICO offers up to 12 daily varieties of oysters, as well as caviar and even a Scotch Oyster — a glass of Bowmore 12, a single oyster du jour, and instructions. —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Winter 2019)
