Food and Wine just broke the news that after 12 years, James Beard Award-winning Chef Sean Brock will separate from Neighborhood Dining Group to focus on Nashville projects. The split is effective immediately. Brock notes in a statement that there should be no changes in the Husk experience, as each location’s chef will continue with business as usual.
Brock, who notably has been spending quite a bit of his time in Music City lately, will stay on with the title “founding chef and culinary advisor” for the Husks in Charleston, Greenville, Nashville, and Savannah, but will no longer be involved with Minero, McCrady’s, or McCrady’s Tavern. The chef became a familiar face in Nashville after Husk opened here in 2013.
During his time with Neighborhood Dining Group, Brock earned the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Southeast, as well as multiple JBA nominations.
When Eater reached out to Brock for a statement, representatives said that Brock is out of the country. The city of Nashville awaits news of what Music City projects are to come.
