The Ordinary; Charleston, SC

Housed in a 1920s-vintage bank building, chef Mike Lata’s oyster hall has 22-foot ceilings, majestic cathedral windows and a kitchen that’s located in the former vault. The restaurant tweets its daily selection of East Coast oysters and regional house favorites like Capers Blades and Otter Island Wilds from South Carolina. Lata creates his own versions of low-country seafood classics, including baked Otter Island oysters with bottarga butter, and crispy oysters with beef tartare.
