Since announcing with fanfare that the 17-year-old Fish restaurant would shutter to make way for Parcel 32, owner Patrick Properties Hospitality Group has shed two top executives and an opening chef. But the pimento cheese, blue crab soup and “handcrafted cocktails” were left intact, as guests of the upper King Street restaurant found when it opened earlier this month.
Parcel 32 is now under the kitchen leadership of Shaun Brian, who came to Charleston from the Virgin Islands with ousted executive chef Digby Stridiron. According to a press release, Brian is tasked with making dishes “to highlight the intricate flavors that make up Charleston’s rich history,” including bacon, mustard greens and pecans.
The look of the 104-seat dining room also has been updated since it served as Fish.
Located at 442 King St., Parcel 32 is open Tuesday-Sunday, 5:30-10 p.m. Bar service begins an hour earlier. For more information, visit parcel32.com or call 843-722-3474.
