New Restaurant Spotlight: CudaCo
As the seasons begin to change and the temperatures start to rise, nothing makes us feel more at home in Charleston than fresh seafood. If you’re looking for a new spot in town, look no further than the recently-opened CudaCo on James Island.
This fish + oyster market not only offers a vibrant menu, but serves as a place to purchase fresh, local seafood. CudaCo is fresh fare, modern flair and brings the 5 star experience to your table.
Mama’s Boys Sandwich Emporium
Mama’s Boys Sandwich Emporium, the second food-child from Jeremiah Schenzel and Nicholas Dowling of Daps Breakfast & Imbibe is now open! This “ghost kitchen” concept features the duo’s spin on classic deli sandwiches + hot dogs (think Italian sandwiches, meatball subs, and chili dogs – yum!).
