Behind the Scenes

Chef Chad Newton reviews  at
Country Ham & Bourbon
Southern, Seafood, Modern, American
"Eat next door in the Husk dining room for sure but start or finish here with the shaved Broadbent Ham backed with any of the amazing bourbons. They go together magically. The space is beautiful and rustic yet super comfortable."
Bianca Pizza
"This has always been a favorite of ours in the pizza world. Green olives, garlic, basil, chili and they just started adding ramps. Ask for the house Calabrian chili oil and get a bottle of red from Campania to tie it all together. Best pizza ever!"
"The braised and grilled octopus is kind of hidden in this amazing potato purée and garlic emulsion with dots of black garlic purée. It all comes together perfectly in each bite. One of the best octopus dishes I have ever eate"
Churros Stuffed with Dulche de Leche
"Who can honestly say that they don't like a churro??? 180 makes killer and super traditional churros at this spot and you can watch the crew make them in the open kitchen. My favorite was the churro filled with Dulce de Leche. Super crispy, yet tender outside, and just enough filling to make the overall texture perfect."
Chicken Shawarma Wrap
"This place kills it! Almost as busy as the PA Box. Grilled chicken wrap with a choice of 6 different sauces to choose from. Pro tip: get the French fries on the inside of the wrap not on the side!"
"Damn is all I can say! Goes on my small list of best sandwiches I have ever had! Love the pickles, melted cheese and super spiced peppery meats."
