The BB&T Charleston Wine & Food Festival brought together a long list of big names, from John Besh and Hugh Acheson to Anita Lo and Marc Vetri. So we did what anyone in their right mind would do — we asked for their favorite restaurant recommendations in town. And now, we’re sharing them with you.

Hugh Acheson was more than ready to talk about the fantastic and innovative food being served at Husk, as well as the delicious, classic dishes from Hominy Grill. Rene Ortiz, of La Condesa in Austin, Texas, brought up the amazing food he’d had at McCrady’s, while Rajat Parr, the wine director of the Mina Group, thought that Fig and Charleston Grill both boasted the best wine lists in town.

Who better than chefs to give us food recommendations in, dare we say, the South’s culinary capital? Check out the video for the rest of their tips.
