Sean Brock
We asked 2010 JBF Best Chef: Southeast award winner Sean Brock of McCrady’s in Charleston to tell us the best places to eat in his hometown.

1. Late-Night Dining
Tattooed Moose
1137 Morrison Drive
“This place is a favorite of all the employees at McCrady’s for after-work snacks. They use duck fat in their fryers!”

2. Quintessential Charleston Cooking
Hominy Grill
207 Rutledge Avenue
“Chef Stehling is using great products to replicate the iconic dishes of the Low Country. One of our favorite places to take out-of-town guests.”

3. Family Dinner
451 King Street
“It’s always a lot of fun to relax with a bunch of different pizzas and pitchers of beer at this great little spot. I love the smell of the woodburning oven.”

4. Date Night  
Kim’s Korean & Japanese Steak
1716 Old Towne Road
“Kim’s is our first choice when my wife and I are dining with other couples. We always order way too much food and eat everything family-style.”

5. Brunch  
High Cotton
199 East Bay Street
“We love this swank Charleston restaurant for brunch. It has a great view of East Bay Street for people-watching. The ingredients are incredible, the room is beautiful, and the service is just right.”
