Chef and restauranteur Patrick Owens' new restaurant Opal (1960 Riviera Drive) is up and running--and getting great reviews.

A food writer from Charleston City Paper checked out the new joint and had lots to say about the atmosphere, decor, and food. Some of the highlights include:

  • An aesthetically-pleasing interior that's rustic and cozy
  • A menu that combines local ingredients with zesty Mediterranean flavors and changes ever so slightly each day
  • Dishes that scream of freshness
  • An inviting bar great for having a drink or two--or an app or two
  • A wide beer selection that craft beer lovers will be infatuated with
  • Fresh pasta--not much is better than freshly made pasta
