JOHNS ISLAND — For the past 14 years, Fred Neuville has served many helpings of Lowcountry cuisine with a French flair at his Maybank Highway restaurant.
But very soon, Neuville and wife Joan will leave the rustic dining venue. The Fat Hen will close for good April 26. The 35 employees were notified April 20.
The Neuvilles are selling the 2-acre site for $2.39 million to an investment firm behind The Neighborhood Dining Group, according to Jim Moring with The Commonwealth Co., which handled the sale for the buyer and the seller.
Moving into the Fat Hen location will be Minero, one of several restaurants in the Neighborhood Dining Group stable.
The Mexican-inspired venue is expected to open by late summer, down the street from another site that the ownership had originally targeted when looking to relocate Minero from East Bay Street in Charleston. It scuttled the move when the coronavirus outbreak struck and closed the downtown location.
“We had a Johns Island location of Minero in the works last year, but the pandemic caused us to press pause until conditions improved,” said David Howard, president of Neighborhood Dining Group.
“We started looking around and this opportunity presented itself,” Howard said. “We’re excited to resume plans for this location in an even bigger and better way than we had originally thought. We can’t wait to serve the community on Johns Island and bring Minero back to the Charleston area.”
The company operates another Minero in Atlanta as well as Husk in Charleston, Nashville and Savannah; Husk Barbeque in Greenville; and Delaney Oyster House in Charleston.
Howard said the new restaurant will require 30 to 40 workers and that current employees are being offered positions. The renovations over the next few months will include kitchen modifications and an expanded and covered front patio area with a retractable awning to accommodate more diners.
The Coop, an outdoor bar and dining venue behind the restaurant, will be dismantled.
In addition to many of its regular items such as house-made tortillas, slow-cooked meats, tacos, burritos, fire-grilled wings, margaritas, and tequila and mezcal, the restaurant will offer several new dishes for its all-day service seven days a week.
It will replace a popular dining venture that the Neuvilles took a risk on in 2007 after borrowing against their home.
“People said we were crazy,” Fred Neuville said. “It was way out in the country, and no one would go there.”
But after the couple had lunch at what was then St. Johns Island Café, they felt it was the right location. They bought the business for $89,000 in April 2007, renovated it and opened three months later.
“It was the biggest risk of our lives,” said Neuville, who later became a co-owner of the nearby Wild Olive down the street from 2008 to 2010. “If we hadn’t opened on July 8 (2007), we wouldn’t have opened because we were out of money.”
He figured the Fat Hen’s business plan to serve an average of 89 customers a night when he first opened. It turned out to be closer to 350 instead.
The venture was so successful the Neuvilles bought the 2-acre property for $1.1 million in 2009.
“We were very fortunate,” Neuville said. “It was definitely a dream come true.”
With business booming and people lining up to get in, The Coop was added in 2014.
“We needed a waiting area, and it just evolved into what it is now,” he said.
The site includes a covered bar and outdoor seating for 40. When COVID-19 struck, he added a tent next to it.
As for surviving during the pandemic, Neuville said it was a challenge at first because he was not used to serving to-go meals.
When the economy began to emerge from the lockdown in May and allowed partial inside seating, he worked around it, but said the federal Paycheck Protection Program and expanded outdoor seating saved the business.
“This past winter was OK, but not great,” Neuville said. “But since spring break, we are doing great and we are matching numbers from 2019 when we were open seven days a week. We’re now closed two days a week — Sunday and Monday.”
Neuville said the coronavirus brought its challenges, but the decision to sell is one he and his wife have been mulling over for two or three years. She’s ready to retire and he, now 55, wants to move on to a new venture.
“I’ve been in the business since I was 13, and it’s time to do something else,” Neuville said. “I will continue to do some kind of work. If it’s food service, it is. If not, I’m sure I will find something to do.”
Neuville said he will miss certain parts of the restaurant business, but not all of it.
“There are a lot of things about the hospitality industry that I love and a lot that have changed and I don’t enjoy, but you have to do it,” he said. “I’ll replace it with something else. I plan to keep my toe in the water.”
Wherever he lands, his credentials will follow him.
After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America when he was 19, Neuville accepted his first executive chef position at age 20 in a Richmond, Va., restaurant.
From there, he moved around for several years, working in restaurants in Baltimore, Washington, Aspen, Colo., and Denver, where he met his wife and got married in 1996. She wanted to move to the coast, so they chose Charleston and he took a job as executive chef at the Jasmine Porch on Kiawah Island.
He left there and worked for an events company before launching Rue de Jean in 2000 on John Street and the neighboring Coast Bar & Grill two years later.
In 2004, he started Good Food Catering in the old Rice Mill building on the peninsula. Three years later, his wife saw a notice just before Christmas about a restaurant for sale on Johns Island. They checked it out, bought it and have never looked back.

Saint James Church: Worshipping in the Presence of the Past:1720-2020, a new book by Virginia Brown Bartels, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
This three-hundred-year history of an Anglican church on James Island, near Charleston, South Carolina, portrays details of its priests and its people, beginning in a small, primitive building in a very rural area, and expanding over the years into a three-structure center of worship in a modern suburban community. Worship began when a priest rowed his boat to James Island to conduct services for fewer than twenty people once a month. Today, the church has several priests and several daily worship activities for a congregation consisting of hundreds of members. The account is fascinating as it incorporates almost four hundred pages of historical details based on evolving current events and societal changes, yet the parishioners remain faithful to an unchanging God of grace. Who we are in present times is rooted in past times, and the details gathered within this work from multiple primary and secondary sources come together to portray both a sequential and a topical story of people first living in a colonial agricultural society and eventually adapting to a modern technological era. Readers will be more aware of how faith perpetuates persistence and problem-solving in whatever circumstances arise.

The Spring Manchester show is history. We had a successful show, with strong sales from Thursday dealer set-up through Saturday afternoon. The show promoter advised us that he is planning another show for late June so we are on a mission to replenish our inventory before that and before the Raleigh, NC show the week before.
This is transition time for us. We leave South Carolina in a few days and will be working out of Keene, NH for the next seven months.
In early February we submitted a group of gold coins to NGC for grading. We had hoped to have the coins available for the Manchester show, but after waiting for weeks we finally received our grades the day before the show, and got delivery on April 13. The group includes a 1900 2 1/2 Liberty, MS-62, a 1903 2 1/2 Liberty, MS-64+, a 1906 2 1/2 Liberty, MS-65, a 1911 2 1/2 Indian, MS-62, a 1913 2 1/2 Indian, MS-61, an 1847 $5 Liberty, MS-62+, an 1895 $20 Liberty, MS-61, and a 1986 $50 Eagle, PF-70 Ultra Cameo!

CHARLESTON, SC (WCIV) — Demand for housing in the greater Charleston area remains high as ever, and developers and the City of Charleston are preparing to make way for hundreds of new homes on Johns Island.

CHARLESTON, SC (WCIV) — Demand for housing in the greater Charleston area remains high as ever, and developers and the City of Charleston are preparing to make way for hundreds of new homes on Johns Island.
Charleston city leaders met Thursday to review the Wooddale subdivision, a 450-acre property off River Road. It’s been in the works for almost a decade.
Wooddale was approved eight years ago but didn’t acquire a developer until recently. The city’s technical review committee met Thursday morning to review the plans, one of many steps in the permitting process.
“Are the roads being put in the right way, is the drainage being handled the right way, are the trees being protected in the right way? You know things like that,” said Christopher Morgan, Planning Manager of the city’s Department of Planning, Preservation and Sustainability. “We have very stringent stormwater standards, we adopted new stormwater standards last summer.”
Morgan said this project is unique in a variety of ways and designed with flooding in mind, incorporating innovative stormwater mitigation techniques that came out of the city’s Dutch Dialogues series.
Wooddale will go up off Plow Ground Road with room for 430 single family homes.
“It’s adhering to the standards that we and Charleston County have for areas outside the Urban Growth Boundaries which means no more than one unit per acre for the overall development,” Morgan said. “That is a reduced type of density in this location and it is a development that will provide housing that’s needed in this area. We hear lots and lots of studies how Charleston has tremendous needs for more housing units because of people moving here, the jobs that are created here, so this is fulfilling those needs.”
Lifelong residents like Maxine Curry aren’t thrilled about the project. She says it will inevitably mean more traffic on the island.
“No more development. Enough is enough,” Curry said. “It’s going way too fast. Look down River Road, River Road oh my gosh, you know, it’s just horrible. It really is and it’s just such a shame to ruin such a good place to live.”
Gary Goldsmith moved to Johns Island four years ago. He said the growth and development that’s occurred since then is shocking and adds the growing pains are only getting worse.
“Listen, I’m one of the people that came here, so I can’t complain too much, but I do believe that they need to slow down and take a look at how they’re going to do traffic flows here,” Goldsmith said. “There needed to be a moratorium, in my opinion, a while ago to slow down the construction. I understand some permits were already in place and they had to allow those to go forward but yeah it’s time that they take a serious look at the infrastructure out here and what they really want to do.”
There’s still a long way to go before developers break ground on the Wooddale subdivision. Morgan said there will be road improvements when the time comes, which will likely include a few turn lanes since Plow Ground Road is currently only a two-lane road. He said a traffic study was conducted back when the subdivision was approved.
“Maybe end of the year, start of next year they could start construction, but there’s a lot of road work to be done,” he said. “They’ve got to get sewer lines to the property, so there’s a lot of things that are going to have to happen so it’s going to be a while until these houses are complete and ready to be sold.”
