Charleston restaurants are consistently earning accolades and awards and popping up on publications’ listicles, but do any of them hold a more impactful place in our nation’s history? At least one publication certainly thinks so. Food & Wine magazine recently included two Holy City favorites – Husk and Rodney Scott’s BBQ – in their list of “The 40 Most Important Restaurants of the Past 40 Years.”
The publication, which says their list includes restaurants that have “paved the way for the country’s current dining landscape,” said this about each of the Charleston hotspots:
- Chef Sean Brock and Husk “re-wrote the script on (Lowcountry) cooking by reviving long-forgotten foodstuffs (think heirloom peanuts) and recipes. Brock forever changed the Charleston food scene, establishing it as a first-rate American dining city.”
- Of note – Brock recently announced that he is resigning from the Neighborhood Dining Group to start new projects in Nashville. However, he will remain as the “founding chef and culinary advisor” at Husk.
- Rodney Scott, who won the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Southeast this year, is “the new-wave barbecue hero we need. One of the country’s top living pit masters, Scott’s specialty – whole hog – has made his eponymous restaurant an essential expression of American cooking.”
