Sorelle is perhaps one of the most difficult reservations to score in the city. Boasting multiple dining rooms and two different concepts, this jaw-dropping spot by the Michael Mina Group is truly unlike any other restaurant in Charleston. On today’s show I sit down with Chef Nick Dugan to hear about the 7 year long process of renovating historic 88 Broad street and what the reception has been like so far.
This podcast is brought to you by fancy Nutella. (Just kidding it’s not but please sponsor the show.)I get excited about a little spring fling and make a new playlist on Spotify! Plus, I tell you where to get my favorite baguette and go on a meandering detour about restaurant playlists that never change.
There are so many thrilling events to go to this weekend, I need to clone myself. (See Links Below) This week I checked out Charleston’s newest restaurant, Sorelle. Plus, I gear up for Charleston Wine and Food Festival and finally make FIG’s Ricotta Gnocchi at home.
I sit down with the creators of RIP CITY and my dear friends Maari + Henry to talk about the shows return to the stage and how excited we all are for it. Grab your tickets to the next one (TOMORROW SAT. 2/18/23 )
I try to get cute with a birthday treat and end up making a major discovery about Rice Krispie Treats. PLUS, when I’m faced with seeing my best friend Maari’s play and getting my take-out order on time, things get really real.
In an incredible turn of events I convince Charleston artist, Jeremy Croft to be a guest on my show. We talk about art and how many hours a day we spend talking to each other and I just love him very much. We also briefly touch on how he worked at a Chile’s in case you thought this podcast wasn’t about restaurants anymore…
Jeremy is showing a new group of paintings at Last Saint, tomorrow, Friday 2/3/23 from 5pm on. Stop by and check his work out for yourself. ♥️
I read a very short Ode to the Stromboli on air and lament about my broken fridge. PLUS, I’m officially allowed to tell you that I’m a panelist in the 2023 line up for FAB (a food and beverage conference hosted right here in Charleston!)

I decide to phone a friend to sort out my feelings on some recent food headlines, including but not limited to René Redzepi announcing Noma’s imminent closure in 2024, AI in restaurants in Charleston and Trader Joe’s lack of food. Robert and I both worked at Noma for free, coincidentally, and we weigh in on what the announcement means for the food world.
