Hired Guns Chef Series Coming To Gunshow


It’s hard to believe, but today is the one year anniversary of Gunshow, chef Kevin Gillespie’s Glenwood Park “on-a-cart” restaurant.

To celebrate, Gillespie just announced a new guest chef series that will run from May to October, and feature some of the South’s most buzzed about talents — beginning with Chris Shepherd, the 2014 James Beard Best Chef Southwest award winner from Houston’s Underbelly, Tuesday, May 27 and Wednesday, May 28.

For two days each, the “Hired Guns” will cook in Gunshow’s open kitchen and serve their dishes alongside the restaurant’s featured dinner items. They’ll also have a chance to sign cookbooks and share their stories.

Here’s the upcoming Hired Gun lineup:

* Chef John Currence, 2009 James Beard Best Chef South award winner from Oxford, Mississippi’s City Grocery, Tuesday, July 15 and Wednesday, July 16

* Chef Tandy Wilson from Nashville’s City House, Tuesday, August 12 and Wednesday, August 13

* Chef Jeremiah Bacon from Charleston’s The MacIntosh and Oak Steakhouse
Tuesday, September 30 and Wednesday, October 1.

so far, wifey and I can’t bring ourselves to pay $3-$5 per bite of food. Haven’t been.

I have been several times and greatly enjoyed both visits. The “bites” referred to above are actually enough to share for 2 people so you are able to try a number of the specially prepared dishes. If you like food and you enjoy trying different food then you must try Gun Show. The food is excellent, the prices affordable and the ambience unique and fun! I hope to visit again very soon.
