The 5th Anniversary of FIG


April 24, 2008 by seanbrock

FIG has always been my favorite restaurant in Charleston so when Mike Lata called me up and asked me if I would cook a course for his anniversary dinner I was thrilled.  It was really great to cook alongside such talented chefs.  This was a really, really good dinner…Below is the menu.

    How was the ravioli over easy done… looks and sounds highly interesting. Love it.
    I spoke to Chris Windus from bluezoo, and he said he was going to be in your kitchen for the Ideas in Food dinner… I’m totally jealous of that. Wish we could be there… either in the dining room or in the kitchen, although I’d opt for the kitchen.
