No, I'm Not Kidding

In case you doubt the wood-fire grill trend, Nathan Thurston is jumping ship from the Ocean Room out at Kiawah to open a new restaurant with a 1940s era grill room and . . . wait for it . . . a "wood-fired grill-rotisserie".

If you ain't cooking over wood in 2012, you're so 2011.

You heard it hear first.  Or at least relatively early.

Did you see that Joshua Hopkins (previously of Abbatoir in Atlanta) is moving to a new place: STG Trattoria?
Among other things, it will have two wood-fired grills (flown over from Naples).
Year of the Wood-Fired Grill.
Hat tip to you, RM. You called it!

No, I'd not seen that yet. But thanks for the confirmation!

Now if that "baked alaska is coming back in a big way" trend I predicted 3 or 4 years ago would just come true . . .
