Isle of Palms
With 18 windows looking out onto a stunning Isle of Palms view, Coda del Pesce could skirt by on the scenery, but it doesn’t. Multiple James Beard-nominated chef Ken Vedrinksi is a Lowcountry veteran who has hit it out of the park at the Woodlands, Sienna, and Lucca, and he’s now enjoying his next success — this one with a beach breeze, but still firmly rooted in his Italian cooking. For years, he’s wowed diners at Coda with perfectly-cooked shrimp in tomato sauce, gnudi with housemade duck sausage, and any local, fresh fish that catches his fancy. Gussy up and get out there for a meal.
