THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Raval Restaurant Review: Raval is a small, dark spot that makes the best possible use of an old Charleston storefront. The former display window now is the tiny kitchen, and Raval's main focus, the wine, is stacked up to the high ceiling over the bar that anchors the interior. Nibbles that consistently involve prepared meats, cheeses and olives in piquant combinations of tapas and small grilled sandwiches provide just the right accompaniment for a wine list that includes international choices but with an understandable emphasis on Spain. An enormous wine list and the opportunity to share a small carafe, or quarto, provide ample options for tasting lots of different wines.
