Located in a historic Charleston storefront, Renzo is the first full-service restaurant project from Faculty Lounge owners Erik and Nayda Hutson. Erik, a licensed architect and contractor, designed and renovated the space himself. From building out the kitchen to fabricating casework to constructing booths and tables, he spent more than a year finishing the restaurant by hand. The restaurant opened its doors in early March 2018.
The menu changes often, with frequent specials, themed dinners, and featured winemaker visits rounding out the offerings.
The beverage program focuses on natural wine, a growing movement for which Nayda is a keen proponent. The wine list is designed to highlight small, family-run estates, underrated regions and varietals, and terroir-driven producers who champion low-intervention winemaking.
