Indigo Road, the restaurant group behind O-Ku Charlotte and Oak Steakhouse, will launch an Italian restaurant in South End’s Atherton Mill Complex in March 2019.

The Italian restaurant will be named Indaco Charlotte. It’ll be Indaco’s second location; the original is in Charleston.

Indaco Charleston is a hit. It’s highly rated across all the big review sites — 4.7/5 on Facebook (200+ ratings) 4.6/5 on OpenTable (1,000+ reviews), 4.5/5 on Google (150+ ratings) and a 4.5/5 on Yelp (250+ reviews).

“We can’t wait to bring wood-fired pizzas and handmade pastas to Atherton,” co-owner Steve Palmer told the Agenda.

I love Indigo Road’s strategy of having a sushi, steak and Italian restaurant in each city they enter.

The Charleston-based restaurant group has restaurants in Atlanta, Charlotte, Columbia, Nashville and Charleston.

Indigo Road is also behind the fast-casual sushi concept going opening in Uptown this spring named Sukoshi.


The Sukoshi space will feature a four-seat sushi bar (which can be reserved for the 30-minute, $30 omakase experience), a walk-up counter, refrigerated section and some additional seating for those not in too big of a hurry. We’re set for a late spring/early summer opening. Rendering: David Thompson.

Look for Indaco Charlotte to open its doors in March 2019. Yes, it’s a long way away, but should be tasty once it arrives. South End continues to boom.
