Indaco, the newest restaurant in the Indigo Road group, will open the first week of August at 526 King St. in downtown Charleston.
Serving rustic Italian fare, the 2,900-square-foot restaurant’s name is pronounced with the accent on the second syllable. It will seat 100, including the bar and patio.
Chef Robert Berry, a 2002 graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, returns to Charleston, where he began his culinary career at Slightly North of Broad. Also on the team as general manager is Andrew Fallis, Indigo Road veteran and current general manager of The Macintosh.
The kitchen will boast wood-fired grills, ovens and rotisseries. Rustic entrees, wood-fired pizzas, pastas, house-made salumi and house-cured sausages and meats will fill the menu. In- daco will open at 5 p.m. daily and serve dinner until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Pizzas will be served at the bar to midnight Friday and Saturday.
Music Suites LLC, a locally owned studio for music teachers, is open at 1579 Savannah Highway, West Ashley, in the former Seithel’s Florist space.
The shop, beside the Ballet Academy of Charleston, rents teaching rooms to music teachers and music therapists. Each room has natural light, a small desk, chairs, drawers and a lamp. Some are equip-ped with pianos. All walls are insulated with sound barrier materials, and the floors are carpeted. A small waiting area is included. Room sizes range from 107 to 296 square feet. Music rooms can be rented for one, two or three days per week, or for the entire week. The monthly fees include utilities and cleaning.
The venture is owned by Corina Fimian, who also owns the ballet studio.
West Ashley will see a new barber shop, possibly as early as Tuesday, pending permits.
Former barbers Tim Saye and Kenny Todd are opening Tip Top Hair Shop at 2176 Savannah Highway, Suite 121. Saye operated Bushwacker’s Hairstyles on James Island for 32 years before trying retirement in 2011. He then worked at Ed’s Barber Shop in Westwood Plaza in West Ashley for two years. Todd once operated K.T. Hair Force on Calhoun Street in the 1980s before leaving to run Cape & Isle Awning in North Charleston.
