Parcel 32 — the forthcoming reinvention of Fish restaurant — has found an executive chef. According to a press release from parent company Patrick Properties Hospitality Group, Digby Stridiron will lead the kitchen.

Stridiron is a St. Croix native where he most recently owned and operated Balter. The New York Times profiled Balter in 2016 and called it “a primer of West Indian cuisine.” Think rum-laced bread and Danish-adapted red guava tapioca puddings. That influence will likely be seen at Parcel 32.

I am very passionate about the coastal south and am excited to be cooking in Charleston,” say Stridiron in a statement.

Parcel 32 is expected to open this fall.
