Sean Brock, Chef at McCrady's in Charleston, SC

McCrady's of Charleston is one of four restaurants in the nation named to the 2012 Fine Dining Hall of Fame by Nation's Restaurant News.

The award recognized fine dining establishments that have successfully weathered the economic downturn.

"Old-school trappings in the front of the house at centuries-old McCrady's have not kept the back of the house from dressing aged roasted duck with fermented walnuts or from applying avant-garde techniques to heirloom vegetables," the industry magazine wrote in the Nov. 12 issue.

Chef Sean Brock is the executive chef of McCrady's and Husk. McCrady's joins well-known restaurants Eleven Madison Park in New York: Uchi in Austin, Texas; and Lumiere in Newton, Mass.

McCrady's is rich in history; one of the dining rooms upstairs was where President George Washington visited during his Southern tour in 1791. But, as the magazine points out: "McCrady's cuisine is anything but old-fashioned."
