Congrats to Chef Sean Brock of McCrady’s on the James Beard Award.

One of my favorite Chef’s in the whole world has won the most prestigious culinary award one can win, The James Beard Award. Chef Brock was named the Best Chef Southeast for his work at McCrady’s at 2 Unity Alley in Charleston, South Carolina. The restaurant is located in an old building down a tiny cobble stone street. The bottom floor has been many things during its history including a tavern and a warehouse and I have been told by several staff there, a whore house upstairs (Nice, huh!). If you sit around awhile you’ll hear stories about pirates and all that cool stuff.

The building, however, is NOT why it is my favorite restaurant in the south and has been for many years. Check out Chef Brock’s ever changing menu and commitment to farm to table cuisine, it is ridiculous. The best thing I have ever eaten in my life was at McCrady’s, a tuna tartare (I will review that some other time).
