The Ordinary

Taking its name from an old term for a set menu, The Ordinary is James Beard: Best Chef Southeast winner Mike Lata and his operating partner, Adam Nemirow's version of a classic oyster bar and seafood hall, located in an old bank in Charleston's Upper King Street District. It features an extensive raw bar, fresh fish, and a variety of small and large plates - making it the ideal gathering place for groups small and large.

At its core, The Ordinary is a celebration of fishermen of the Lowcountry and the matchless seafood of the East coast.

Housed in a historic bank building from 1927, The Ordinary boasts 22-foot high ceilings and showcases the artisanal handiwork of some of Charleston’s finest craftspeople. A signature feature of the 90-seat restaurant is the door of the bank’s original vault; it was left intact in its original location, and now offers diners a view into the kitchen.
