On January 19th, Chef Alex Harrell from the acclaimed New Orleans restaurant Sylvain will be the featured chef for the first Guerrilla Cuisine dinner of the New Year. Chef Harrell has created a menu that celebrates oyster season in the lowcountry.
Chef Harrell brings a straightforward, no-nonsense approach to cooking and sourcing the best ingredients from the southern United States. Hailing from Southeast Alabama, Chef Harrell’s earliest childhood memories were spending his summers on the Gulf Coast and learning how to cook and bake with his father.
In the fall of 2010, Harrell was chosen by owners Sean McCusker and Robert LeBlanc to head the kitchen at Sylvain, the celebrated new restaurant in the French Quarter where Alex crafts simple but skilled Contemporary American dishes. Brett Anderson, The Times-Picayune’s food critic, states that Sylvain’s strength is in the “careful execution of a thoughtful roster of relatively simple dishes.” Zozo George, food critic for New Orleans Living, praises Harrell’s style as a reflection of the chef’s personality: “clever, laid-back and very, very easy to get along with.”
Chef Harrell has been featured on CNN.com’s Eatocracy, Time.com, and was a nominee for the Food & Wine Best New Chef Award. Sylvain is a constant on the Eater New Orleans “Essential Restaurants” list.
Guerrilla Cuisine is back in 2014 with a limited run of dinners, thoughtfully planned to feature a few local chefs, and some great talent from out of town. Jimihatt is excited to welcome Alex Harrell back to Charleston.
