Big doings over at Charleston Grill. We’ve confirmed the rumors that have been swirling around town since last Friday — and, it’s true, Bob Waggoner will no longer helm the kitchen at one of Charleston’s most prestigious fine dining restaurants.

Fortunately, they won’t miss a beat as longtime Sous Chef Michelle Weaver will take over and continue plating up that delicious menu of innovative fare with some planned changes of her own.

It’s exciting to see a woman ascend the ranks. We’ve long bemoaned the dearth of female head chefs in this town. With the ever-capable Mickey Bakst easing the transition, diners can certainly expect the same top-notch experience as Charleston Grill enters a new and exciting era. —Jeff Allen
