Seafood restaurant added in downtown Aiken

A new seafood eatery is opening Thursday in downtown Aiken.

Catch 231, located at 231 The Alley, will serve local produce as well as fresh seafood shipped from Beaufort, S.C.

“Most of the produce used at Catch 231 will come from within 20 miles of the restaurant, and the seafood will be brought in each week from Beaufort,” executive chef Keith Herron said.

The restaurant is the joint venture of Dr. Philip Jordan, Jeffery Jordan and Janice Rodriguez, who also own and manage Up Your Alley Chophouse. After opening their steakhouse in the Alley last fall, the trio heard from diners about the need for a seafood establishment in Aiken.
