We are thrilled to announce that on October 11 + 12, 2014, we are joining the line-up of VIP chefs for Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Music Festival. We are teaming up with Southern Ground Executive Chef Rusty Hamlin, Washington, DC Chef RJ Cooper, and Charleston chefs Ken Vedrinksi and Kelly Kleisner for a weekend of great food and music.
We will be cooking for the sold-out Front Porch Stage VIP Boxes each night, serving up some of our favorite Langdon’s + Opal dishes. We will be serving some of our Porcini Agnolotti with smoked duck ham + local greens and Local Grouper over orzo perlato with fennel sausage and roasted corn tapenade. How’s that for a uniquely delicious way to experience a concert?!
We are thrilled to participate in the BB&T Charleston Wine & Food Festival this year as part of their “Perfectly Paired Dinner” series. We will be welcoming our friend Chris Hall from Local Three in Atlanta, as well as acclaimed local pastry chef Lauren Mitterer of WildFlour, and Joe Davis of the celebrated Arcadian Winery in Santa Barbara, CA.

Business editor Warren Wise profiles Chef Patrick Owens in Charleston’s Post & Courier.
Zagat, the widely regarded international restaurant ratings guide, has recently added a select few Charleston restaurants to the platform. We are proud to announce that thanks to our reviewer contributions, Langdon’s has received a 28 out of a possible 30 rating for food! Here’s what our reviewers had to say:
“The chef is at the top of his game” at this Mount Pleasant American, where the “top-tier” fare and “excellent wine list” are “presented with care” and “rival any Downtown” eatery; maybe it “doesn’t look like much on the outside”, but once indoors “a beautiful bar and romantic dining room” await – and if it’s “pricey”, devotees declare it’s a “worth-it” “treat.”
We are thrilled to announce that on Saturday, November 9, Chef Patrick Owens will travel to NYC to be featured as a guest chef at the iconic James Beard House in Greenwich Village. Patrick’s dinner is part of the James Beard Guest Chef Program, which allows celebrated chefs from around the world the unique opportunity to curate a signature intimate dinner for James Beard Foundation members and guests.
Patrick’s menu will focus on his signature Southern-global dishes, showcasing Lowcountry seafood, handmade pasta, house-cured meats, local cheeses and seasonal fall produce. We look forward to bringing the best of the Lowcountry to the Big Apple!
Tickets are still available and are $170 for non-members and $130 for members. For more information, call 212.627.2308 or visit www.jamesbeard.org/events/contemporary-charleston.com.
We hope you will join us in congratulating Chef on this great honor, and please join us in NYC if you happen to be headed that way this fall!
