New Italian restaurant focused on seafood to open at Cigar Factory

After recently opening Trattoria Lucca, popular chef Ken Vedrinski is back at it opening Ristorante Introdacqua that will focus on "Italian seafood specialties."

No opening date has been set yet, only "soon." I'm speculating they're at least a month or two away.

The restaurant will call the Cigar Factory home and will house some 85 for dinner and 25 at the bar.

And, if you didn't know, the Cigar Factory is a new housing, office, retail, and business development built inside an old factory. They're located at 701 East Bay Street.

Here's more details from the press release:

Inspired by a small, Southern Italian town for which it will be named – and by the ironic juxtaposition of its Charleston location - Ken Vedrinski’s newest restaurant will debut soon at the iconic Cigar Factory.

Named for his grandmother’s hometown, the new Ristorante Introdacqua (which loosely translates to “between land and water”) will focus on Italian seafood specialties. With seating for approximately 85 in the dining area, and 25 at the bar, the architecturally exciting restaurant will feature the chef’s signature, celebrated style. An opening date has not been set.

I think it's especially good news given all the bad news we've heard about business closings.
