Rodney Scott’s BBQ is one of the most important restaurants over the past decade, declares Food and Wine, the national foodie publication.
In the December 16th story – The Most Important Restaurants of the Decade – Food and Wine identifies 13 restaurants across the country that have “challenged longstanding notions of what a restaurant could be.”
Charleston first then Birmingham
Even though, the story features Scott’s first restaurant in Charleston, it doesn’t diminish our immense pride in having Scott’s 2nd location here in the Magic City, which opened this past February.
And let’s not forget, when Scott opened his restaurant in South Carolina in February 2017, he partnered with Birmingham’s own Nick Pihakis of Pihakis Restaurants Group. So the Birmingham connection has been there from the start.
“Best to ever do it”
Winner of the 2018 James Beard Best Chef in the Southeast Award, Scott received the highest compliment possible in the Food and Wine story.
Checkout the intro:
“Barbecue is one of the best things America ever did, and Rodney Scott is one of the best to ever do it.”
