Hurricane Ian, the first to make landfall in South Carolina since Matthew in 2016, left Charleston area restaurants largely unscathed. Most, including those located in flood-prone areas, were able to reopen first thing Oct. 1.
Downtown Charleston’s Little Line Kitchen & Provisions at 176 Line St. reopened for breakfast Oct. 1, a mere 12 hours after large parts of Line Street — bookmarked by President Street and Ashley Avenue — were under water.
The West Side daytime eatery did not see any obvious damage, owner Wendy Gleim said, though she reported drain issues later in the day that could have been related to flooding.
Other peninsula restaurants returned to normal service less than 24 hours after Ian passed through Charleston.
Steps away from Little Line, Daps Breakfast & Imbibe reopened the morning after the storm.
A crew outside Melfi’s returned the restaurant’s sign to its normal hanging position after it was taken down as a precautionary measure. The restaurant was left unharmed, co-owner Brooks Reitz said.
Huger Street was another downtown thruway that found itself under water Sept. 30, but that didn’t stop Renzo, 384 Huger St., and Berkeley’s, at the corner of Huger Street and Rutledge Avenue, from reopening the following day.
A handful of Charleston area bars and restaurants decided to stay open during the storm, including Frannie & The Fox, Kwei Fei, Stems & Skins, Share House and Blind Tiger.
Matthew Conway, who owns The Tippling House wine bar with his wife Carissa, said he never consider closing. The couple and The Tippling House’s chef, Sean Clinton, live within walking distance of the wine bar, so Conway knew he could open without putting his staff in danger.
“It was by far our biggest food sales night ever,” said Conway, who eventually had to start turning people away by the end of the night. “Over my career I’ve found that those are the nights you can really bond with the community. Just the camaraderie you feel with the people that come in that night.”
Chef and restaurateur Nico Romo hoped to offer the same type of atmosphere for patrons at his new Summerville restaurant Laura. But shortly after bringing in his kitchen crew in the morning, he made the decision to close Laura, along with his other two restaurants — NICO Oysters + Seafood in Mount Pleasant and Bistronomy By Nico downtown.
“I didn’t know Summerville as well and I didn’t expect them to be as flooded,” Romo said.
It might be only one night, but the decision to close on a Friday was a big one for Romo and other Charleston restaurateurs. Especially ones that rely on local seafood (NICO) and house-made pasta (Laura).
“You don’t want to waste any product, and the product is already there,” Romo said. “You have to stay open as long as you can.”
The hardest hit of Romo’s restaurants was Bistronomy, which closes weekly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
“So now (for) a five-day week, I’m already only getting sales for three days,” said Romo, who said he knows it could have been worse. “You’ve got to always look at the positive side. In some ways we take the risk to live on the coast.”
$50M Mt. Pleasant park referendum wins close battle at the polls

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — “First of all, I know we’ve been talking about the numbers.”
Mount Pleasant Town Councilmember Howard R. Chapman was one of several folks waiting for the ballots to be counted Tuesday evening.
But Chapman wasn’t waiting for a candidate’s victory and was pushing for funding for the town’s park system.
Chapman and his team of elected officials, including Gary Santos and John Iacofano, along with voting public members, worked over the past six weeks on the Vote for Parks referendum.
The referendum barely passed by around a percentage point and several hundred votes.
Chapman says, “But this is another experience that shows every vote counts.”
Another council member, Iacofano, echoes Chapman’s take. And win or lose, he was glad it went up for a public vote.
Iacofano says, “the most important thing is that battle was won at the ballot box.”
The package has a 50-million-dollar price tag. Most of the project focuses on turning 100-plus acres of land purchased in 2011 along Rifle Range Road into what Iacofano calls a “legacy” park.
Multiple fields for multiple sports, including soccer, volleyball, and disc golf, an outdoor basketball court, walking trails, and gymnasiums are mapped out.
Plus, a team effort by Mount Pleasant and Charleston County purchased neighboring land for environmental preservation.
Also, part of the plan is to fix several other parks in the system.
Councilmember Gary Santos is excited about the possibilities.
Santos says, “we’re trying to give the kids that are coming to now, and adults, a place that’s really nice that’ll have new fields for them to play on.”
Perry Rourk, the Chairman of the Mount Pleasant Recreation Advisory Commission, says, “not having this referendum will be a huge setback.”
Despite their enthusiasm, not everyone was on board. That’s easy to tell by the close tally, which is not official yet.
Adding an average property tax of $80 yearly for most homeowners over the 15-year bond payout period was a known turnoff for some voters.
Neighbors recently told us that they worried about flooding and parking issues. Looking at the Phase 2 map of the plan, portions of the property are set to deal with drainage.
On Friday, the vote could be certified, making it official.
If that happens, groundbreaking on the Rifle Range Road portion of the planning could happen in November 2023.

Developers estimate initial construction and submitting of remaining plans will start in fall 2023.
MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - The Patriots Point Development Authority Board and Bennett Hospitality hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday to mark the start of a five-phase, 15-year development project.
The Patriots Annex project is a $300 million development that will include three hotels, restaurants, entertainment, shops, three office buildings, parks and an amphitheater. Developers estimate initial construction and submitting of remaining plans will start in fall 2023.
The project was approved five years ago by state supervisors. After the initial approval, Michael Bennett of Bennett Hospitality and his team began planning the development.
“I’m born and raised in Charleston and when Patriots Point presented the opportunity for me to help develop this property, just as a personal Charlestonian, I was very, very excited to think I could do something that was beautiful, and also help Patriots Point,” Bennett said. “It was a very natural fit for me.”
The largest hotel, the Grand Patriot, will sit towards the back of the property at 250 rooms. The other two hotels will have 100 to 150 rooms.
Gov. Henry McMaster was also at the groundbreaking alongside other state and Lowcountry government officials.
“This project is going to be wonderful [at] the Patriots Point Naval and US Maritime Museum,” McMaster said. “We’re going up. Tourism is a $24 billion business in South Carolina. So that is why we’re thriving. And I promise you, we’re going to keep on thriving.”
Bennett and McMaster said the development will establish hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in revenue. By using the land near the USS Yorktown, the money will help maintain the ships and aircraft located on Patriots Point.
“It is going to be a huge economic impact for not only Mount Pleasant, but for the entire Lowcountry in the state of South Carolina,” Bennett said. “There will be hundreds and hundreds of jobs that will afford local people to be able to work here and as well as welcomed visitors to come here.”
The first step in construction is to move the visitor parking lot due to much of the proposed development being built on that land. A new parking lot will be moved to accommodate visitors and tourists.
The project will take about 15 years with five phases to complete.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD)- A 15 year project started on Thursday to bring new business to Mount Pleasant and money to the Patriots Point Museum.
The Patriots Annex development will stand on 31 acres of land that Patriots Point is leasing to Bennett Hospitality to build on.
“We’re building around great ships and a great museum,” said Wayne Adams, the Vice Chairman of Patriots Point.
The development will have a grand hotel, multiple boutique hotels, restaurants, shops and a waterfront park with an amphitheater.
“We are going to create a waterfront park so that all the people can enjoy the most valuable piece of land,” said Michael Bennett, the developer of Patriot Annex. “The great hotel that we call The Grand Patriot will sit at the top and it’s the furthest away from the water.”
The lease of the land was something that Patriots Point has to do for the survival of the USS Yorktown, USS Laffey and airplanes in the museum. The historic artifacts need millions of dollars in upkeep every year. But, the solution to fund the renovation bill was not always straightforwards.
“I think how we were going to maintain the ships in a way that honors those who served on them and tells their story has been a struggle for years. A number of years ago we realized we had to monetize the land. That was the only way we were going to be able to do that without the taxpayers for dollars,” said Adams. “We expect it to pay for the maintenance on these ships for years to come, decades to come.”
The current construction on the east side of the museum is where trees are being cleared for the main parking lot at Patriots Annex that will be finished in a year. After that, construction on the buildings will begin.
“Charleston County is routinely named the best place in the county to visit because we are constantly improving. Projects like Patriots Point Annex are what keeps us at the top. What’s being built here today will be one of the most impressive developments we’ve seen in along time and supports Patriots Point and the museum’s mission,” said Chairman Teddie Pryor of the Charleston County Council.
The money made from leasing a new place for visitors and locals to enjoy the Lowcountry will mean that the Patriots Point Museum can fulfill their mission to those who served.
“We’re going to modernize exhibits. We’ll have new exhibits and new ways of telling the story of those who served on these ships,” said Adams.
