The 13 Best Restaurants in the South

February 1, 2015 | Thrillist

There is no better region to eat in than the South. Am I biased? Yes. Do I care? No. And you won’t either once you see what these hyper-talented, uber-creative chefs are doing all over the South, from reinventing Southern cuisine in Charleston to recreating the entire dining experience in Atlanta and re-establishing Oxford as […]

December 12, 2014 | The Daily Meal

Charleston, South Carolina is an undeniably great food town.

December 04, 2014 | Eater

Husk in Charleston is now as much an emblem as a restaurant. Husk’s kitchen philosophy is, “If it doesn’t come from the South, it’s not coming through the door.” It delivered to Charleston diners a cross-section of regional ingredients, some prepared with a mind to tradition (rabbit stew with dumplings, fried okra, corn fritters) and others […]

Eat Like a Local: Charleston, South Carolina

November 10, 2014 | Yahoo!

“If it doesn’t come from the South, it’s not coming through the door,” Husk’s James Beard Award-winning chef, Sean Brock, has famously proclaimed. He’s even struck olive oil from the kitchen. No matter, the market-driven menu doesn’t need it (this coming from an olive oil addict). Husk is a pork lover’s dream (glazed pig’s ear […]

Biscuits, Benne and Black-Eyed Peas

One of the most lauded food staples in Charleston is Carolina gold rice, which I readily purchased with an accompanying silver spoon at a gift shop.
