While Atlanta's Concentrics Restaurants continues to tweak its Charleston-area debut, installing a new executive chef and general manager at Dockery's on Daniel Island over the past two months, it's pressing ahead with its first downtown location, The Establishment.
Described as "seafood-centric," The Establishment plans to emphasize "unpretentious" preparations, such as buffalo-style Cherrystone clams and a halibut chop with roasted green garlic jus. Matt Canter, formerly of The Park Cafe, will lead the kitchen; Brad Mogan, late of Rappahannock Oyster Bar, will serve as general manager.
The name was chosen to reflect the 140-seat dining room's proximity to Church and State streets, since the legal separation of church and state is governed by the Establishment Clause. "The name resonates for the residents," Concentrics partner Todd Rushing told The Post and Courier; he's said he hopes locals will consider The Establishment a place to dine a few nights a week.
