Kingstide, a new restaurant and rooftop bar slated to open at The Waterfront, a luxury mixed-use community on Daniel Island, will be developed by The Indigo Road Hospitality Group, announced developer East West Partners.
The Charleston-based dining and consulting company will oversee the restaurant, managing the conceptual design, culinary development and day-to-day operations.
The Indigo Road manages a growing portfolio of restaurants and hotels throughout the Southeastern U.S. including Oak Steakhouse, Ok-U Sushi, Indaco, The Macintosh, The Cocktail Club, Mercantile and Mash/Bar Mash and the Cedar Room in Charleston.
Interiors are being designed by Cortney Bishop Design, a full-service interior design firm in Charleston.
“We partnered with The Indigo Road for the restaurant component based on decades of excellence in hospitality, cuisine and operations,” said Miller Harper, managing partner of East West Partners in Charleston. “Their ability to create an authentic, inclusive dining experience, combined with Cortney Bishop’s designs and stunning views of the Wando River, will transform Daniel Island’s waterfront into a destination for residents and visitors.”
Showcasing expansive views of the Wando River, Kingstide is set to open in 2021. The restaurant will offer a fresh seafood concept, sourcing local seafood and produce for its menu.
The restaurant is part of the Waterfront development of luxury residences which includes amenities such as direct access to the new Daniel Island marina and waterfront park, pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, post center with onsite property management and a boathouse for kayak and paddleboard storage.
Kingstide guests will be able to access the restaurant by water via the Daniel Island Ferry or by docking at one of the Daniel Island marina’s two public docks.
Both Cortney Bishop Design and The Indigo Road Hospitality Group also will oversee the Daniel Island Market and Eatery (DIME), a gourmet grab-and-go market adjacent to the restaurant scheduled to open in 2021. The DIME’s menu will offer a range of light bites and snacks including gelato, sandwiches, salads, pastries, freshly made juices and coffee, similar to The Indigo Road’s Mercantile and Mash concept in downtown Charleston.
With interiors crafted to reflect its casual, waterside location, Kingstide and The DIME’s designs embrace rustic flooring and beams, classically painted wainscoting and Lowcountry-inspired wall coverings to foster an authentic coastal atmosphere.
The Waterfront’s first phase, which was recently topped out, includes all community amenities and a mix of 58 townhomes and condominiums ranging from the mid $500,000s to $1.9 million.
