Leon’s Oyster Shop
Housed in a former auto shop way up north on King Street, this spot has seriously hip decor: artist Becca Barnet designed gold tap handles and seafood-emblazoned tiles; Justin Walling of Charleston Architectural Glass hand-silvered the graphic mirrors. The menu focuses on poultry, oysters (of course!), and fresh salads. Chef Ari Kolender—who, like co-owner Brooks Reitz, is an alum of The Ordinary—turns out moist fried-chicken sammies with creamy coleslaw. We also dig the oysters Rockefeller, topped with deliciously herby pesto-like sauce.
