After over two decades of serving the Charleston community, Hominy Grill, perhaps the peninsula's most famous restaurant, is closing. The Post & Courier today reported that the restaurant will close on Saturday, April 28th.
Owner Robert Stehling told The Post & Courier's Hanna Raskin that the decision to close was because he was ready for a break after 24 years in business. You can read The Post & Courier's report here.
Stehling's work with Hominy Grill earned him a James Beard Award in 2008 for Best Chef Southeast.
The restaurant has been featured on numerous television shows including No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain, The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Man v. Food, and Amazing Eats.
Hominy Grill is open daily from 7:30 am to 3 pm, so plan accordingly!
