Maybe third time’s the charm? Mixson Club announced last week that Mt. Pleasant sushi and sports bar Locals will take over the Mixson restaurant, set to open by the end of summer 2018.

Last September the club announced that Basico (which went through three chefs before, as CP critic Eric Doksa wrote in 2015, “hitting its stride”) would be replaced by an American grill. Mixson, which was purchased by Front Door Communities in April 2017, hired Chef Owen Gaube to guide the new concept, launching a menu with salads, burgers, sandwiches, and fresh local seafood. Now, the Grille is gone and Locals Sushi is stepping in.

Mixson Club GM Allyson Darling says of the change: “The Mixson Club community is excited to welcome Locals as our new on-site restaurant and we look forward to merging the Locals and Mixson families to create a spectacular culinary and club community. The popular dining spot consistently goes above and beyond in quality and service, which is exactly the experience we craft for our members.”
