      Washington Post Says Charleston’s Barbecue Scene is on Fire

      “Historically, the so-called Holy City hasn’t been a barbecue town. Recently, though, its barbecue scene has been on fire.”

      Jim Shahin of the Washington Post wrote a comprehensive piece about the barbecue scene in Charleston this week. Of Lewis Barbecue coming to town, Shahin says: “Besides adding a spate of new homegrown restaurants, the city has attracted the likes of celebrity Texas pitmaster John Lewis, who helped open Franklin Barbecue in Austin, hailed by Bon Appétit as the best barbecue in America. His legendary brisket may compete with the nation’s best whole hog if Rodney Scott, who operates an acclaimed pit in tiny Hemingway, S.C., closes a deal on a property he is considering at this writing.”

        On the Hunt: Alfresco Dining in Charleston

        Charleston Magazine put together a handy little guide for a question we hear all the time–“Where can we eat outside in Charleston (that’s not a cheesy tourist trap)?” And our favorite little patio at Zero Restaurant gets a shout out in the 7 p.m. slot!

          All in the Family: A Dynamic Sibling Duo

          Check out Bill + Amalia Scatena, the dynamic sibling duo behind Easton Porter’s kitchens, in this month’s The Local Palate. Bill helms the kitchen at Pippin Hill Farm + Vineyards in Charlottesville, while our girl Amalia is here in Charleston at Cannon Green. We think their dishes are just as attractive as they are! Good genes in that Scatena family…

            The Buck Stops Here…(in Charleston, this May)

            Time to bring on the “wise” and “buck” puns…there’s a new kid on the block and we are so excited to be working with them as they launch 3 really unique and special concepts here in Charleston. Chef Damon Wise and business partner Jonathan Buckley announced today via Eater that they will be opening 3 restaurants–Scarecrow, Feathertop and Wise-Buck Smoked Meats–in the coming months, downtown at 23 Ann Street (in between the Children’s Museum and the Visitor’s Center, for you locals).

            We’ve had the opportunity to take a peek at the designs + menus for each, and we can say wholeheartedly that we cannot wait to see it come together.

            Damon has worked with many of the great chefs of the world, and this will be his first restaurant of his own, so we have a feeling it’s going to be big, big, big. Follow along at @scarecrowandco for more info on opening plans.

              A Tasting Menu You Actually Want to Order!

              Hanna Raskin at the Post & Courier talks with Chef Greg Garrison at Prohibition about his new + improved take on the classic tasting menu concept. Billed as a “casual tasting menu,” it won’t break the bank at $65, and we can attest that it’s utterly delicious.

              Pork rinds with local honey and Clemson blue cheese; Warm Oyster Stew with Champagne cream, smoked hazelnut oil and sea lettuces; and Pan-roasted foie gras with smoked beets?

              We’ll take two!

                Strawberry Blondes + Strawberry Salads in Geraldine Mag

                I mean, how pretty is our fav female chef, Amalia Scatena of Cannon Green, in this Geraldine Magazine feature?! And lucky for us, she’s as talented as she is pretty too. We should have posted this after lunch…that Strawberry + Burrata salad is putting our leftovers to shame. Gorgeous.

                  GIANT News from Chi-Town

                  We’re so proud to announce that we are working with Chef Jason Vincent (James Beard’ “Best Chef: Great Lakes” semifinalist/Food & Wine “Best New Chef”) of the soon to be Giant restaurant in Chicago. Jason was at Nightwood, one of the city’s most acclaimed restaurants, for many years before taking a 2-year hiatus to craft plans for his perfect restaurant, which he plans to open this spring in Chicago’s Logan Square.

                  Stay tuned for news on construction progress, juicy food photos and more in the coming months. In the meantime, catch up on the announcement coverage on Eater Chicago, Crain’s, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Mag, and Time Out Chicago.

                    Cannon Green in Lonny Mag

                    We had so much fun working with Lonny magazine on this feature of Cannon Green’s gorgeous interior space. Cannon Green partner + Stems owner, Anne Bowen Dabney, pulled the shoot together with her over-the-top florals + greenery–isn’t it stunning?! And a big thanks to our talented friend Nickie Cutrona for the awesome photos!
