O-Ku & Oriental Garden
December 2010

Everything at this new downtown hot spot reads high style—from the curbside valet to the sleek interior, creative cocktails to the hip crowd. But it’s chef Sean Park’s impeccable sushi and sashimi that dazzles. Don’t miss the Tuna Three Ways and the yellowtail kanpachi. 463 King St., (843) 737-0112,

Mount Pleasant’s long-standing favorite may be modest, but the rolls are not. They’re big, delicious, and among the best deals in town—try the spicy tuna or the Rock’N’Roll. If it’s relaxed, casual, and family friendly you’re after, then this is the place. Not even up for that? Just call ahead and hit the drive-thru. 835 Coleman Blvd., Mount Pleasant, (843) 881-3765
