Sean Brock’s favorite spots to eat in the town he helped put on the map.
My name's Sean Brock, and we're at McCrady's restaurant. A town can just speak to you, and feeling,and seeing, and smelling what a big part of this culture is. And, that's food. There's just restaurants after restaurant. Your restaurant. It really is such an amazing time to be cooking here. Therefore, it's an amazing time to be eating here. It just keeps getting better and better and better. For me there's the perfect day in Charleston. My first stop would be Bad Wolf Coffee. Jonathan's passion is just insane. He's always had this amazing ability to To produce the best of anything I've ever had. This little canal�� that Johnathan makes. I remember eating that and just, like, the world stopped. I could not believe how amazing and delicious and perfect this was. Now I have a place to go eat those any time I want. [MUSIC] So my next stop would be Rodney Scott's Barbecue. You wanna smell that smoke coming from those pits. [MUSIC] I just like leave the world, like I leave the planet. Those ribs drop on the table, I just lose my mind. Rodney cooks all that wood down Into coals and just uses the embers, which takes so much wood and so much time. But it makes the biggest difference you could ever imagine. The next stop, for me, when I want to go to dinner in Charleston. And that's Fig. That restaurant Continues to be a huge source of inspiration for me. The way they create a dining experience is what a lot of chefs chase. There are a few dishes that are kind of in the rotation. And I think probably the one that most people would agree with me on is the tomato tart. I eat multiple tomato tarts each year. I tried to order two for myself. The last time I was there but I was advised against that, I just love that place. [MUSIC]
