Congrats to CIC Grad Chelsey Conrad!

Congrats to CIC grad Chelsey Conrad! After several years in the kitchen of Chef Frank Lee at Slightly North of Broad, Chelsey is now sous chef at Butcher & Bee. Both restaurants have received kudos in the media for their outstanding cuisine.

The Charleston City Paper describes Butcher & Bee: "Butcher & Bee continues to be a leader in the lunch and late-night dining scene, getting tons of local and national attention, mostly because of their crazy good sandwiches. Our favorites include pulled squash with smoked slaw, barbecue sauce, and pickles; roast beef with chimicurri, onion jam, and mayo; and pork belly with hoisin, mayo, cabbage, cuke salad, and peanuts. With a garden out back and access to a handful of carefully cultivated purveyors, Chef Stuart Tracy makes up fresh, vibrant sides as well. The chalkboard changes every day, but we love to see braised lima beans with pork belly and a poached egg; the roasted beet salad with radish, feta, and heirloom carrots; and Brussels sprouts with apples and peanuts. On weekends they reopen the doors at 11 p.m. for a late-night crowd, serving up an incredible burger, fries, and other special surprises until 3 a.m. Occasional pop-up dinners are popular and require a call-ahead reservation."
