Ian Boden

The Shack, Staunton, VA

Dubbed “the Incredible Restaurant that Nobody Knows About” by Josh Ozersky, the Shack—a tiny, 16-seat phenomenon—is run by pedigreed chef and JBF Award semifinalist Ian Boden. The chef’s ambitious tasting menu is usually served on weekends only, but he’s bending the rules for this not-to-be-missed Beard House event.
