New Charleston Restaurants (2022)



Last updated on: 8/3/22

It seems Charleston’s food and beverage offerings are never ending. When one restaurant closes, if feels like two others open. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with all the openings.

To help you keep things straight, Holy City Sinner has compiled a list of every Charleston area restaurant that has opened in 2022. You can also look for restaurant promotions to cut back on costs.

If you’re having trouble locating the food and beverage on Charleston’s list, you can use the reverse image search tool. Advanced features and artificial intelligence are included in the reverse image search tool. Searching for similar and relevant photographs on the internet is made easier with an online image search engine. You can use the reverse photo search tool to find the most relevant images.

Oh…and it doesn’t stop with this list. Click here to see what other restaurants are scheduled to open this year and beyond. You can also see the lists of restaurants that opened from 2017-2021 here.
