Big news in chef moves today: Jeremiah Langhorne, the current chef de cuisine at McCrady’s in Charleston, South Carolina, may be opening his own restaurant in Shaw. Post and Courier critic Hanna Raskin reports that Langhorne is in the process of negotiating a lease for a 45-seat eatery in the neighborhood.

‘“We’re going to be doing food that’s very similar [in terms of] attention to detail, but with a much more relaxed atmosphere,”’ Langhorne tells Raskin. She notes that the District’s growing restaurant scene (beyond “expense account steak dinners”) provided the incentive to move, as well as Langhorne’s childhood growing up in Virginia.

McCrady’s chef/owner Sean Brock—who’s also behind Husk in Charleston and Nashville—has promoted sous chef Daniel Heinze to lead McCrady’s kitchen. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
