Scott Howell’s venture into the pizza business has ended after a year and a half. Howell, better known as chef/proprietor of Nana’s, has turned the keys of the pizzeria over to Dan Ferguson, owner of The Original Q Shack next door.
Ferguson is teaming up with Turner Lawrence to open The Fish Shack in the space, with a target opening date of March 29.
The eatery will specialize in variations on the fried seafood theme, from baskets to fried Cobb salads to po’ boys (including an intriguing sandwich called the Shack Attack, pairing fried crawfish with beef brisket from the Q Shack).
Other options will include a Low Country boil, smoked rotisserie chicken, and a daily grilled fish selection. The goal, according to Ferguson, is fresh food served fast at affordable prices, with most entrees under $10 and nothing over $16.95. I’ll have more details in my Epicurean column when the restaurant opens.
