In 2015, Charlotte’s 5Church opened a sister restaurant in Charleston, a much-welcome addition to the city’s terrific food scene, and one that feels wholly original here. The restaurant is located inside a former church—the stained glass windows are magnificent, as is the soaring arched ceiling, which has the entire text of The Art of War painted across it. The menu is driven by a fresh spin on some regional classics, along with various cuts of steak and chops, although they do have veg-friendly options, too. The wasabi crusted salmon served with bok choy and seaweed salad is excellent.
