Hours: Dinner (daily), Sun. brunch
With high ceilings, honeycomb tile floors, and oodles of vintage charm, it’s no wonder locals have been streaming into The Darling. However, it’s not just the King Street restaurant’s appearance, but the seafood-focused menu that has made a splash with diners. The menu runs the gamut from ceviche and Creole shrimp to traditional favorites like shrimp and grits, hamburgers, and fry baskets. But the real standouts are the raw offerings. Sit at the glass-enclosed raw bar and people-watch as you dine on fresh, raw local clams and East Coast oysters. —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Winter 2019)
