Barsa, which bills itself as a Spanish-influenced restaurant with a southern drawl, has been a local favorite on trendy Upper King Street for years. Chalk it up to the paella with ingredients sourced from local farms and the convivial atmosphere. Basque-inspired plates of octopus with smoked paprika, roasted chicken and kale croquettes, and Manchego-stuffed dates are passed merrily around each table in the warehouse-style restaurant. barsacharleston.com
