 For my latest blog posts I had the pleasure of shooting at the swanky new restaurant 492 King.  It represents what’s currently happening in Charleston – ambitious modern design while preserving the past.  The building dates back to the late 1800s and sat vacant since Hurricane Hugo until it was scooped up by the Relish Restaurant Group. Every detail was put into this beautiful space from the button wall art installation, luxe seating and lighting, the organic rooftop garden, and the courtyard gates that mimic the street map of Upper King where the restaurant is located. But the most important thing is the delicious food and presentation.  You almost don’t want to dive into your plate because each dish is a work of art.
