It’s happening. Just like Sherlock, Sean Brock has spent the past month in his mind palace cooking up wildly creative dishes and now he’s ready to unleash them on the world. Tickets for seats at his new McCrady’s (155 East Bay St.) are now available.
For $125 you can grab a spot at the 18-seat tasting menu experience. Wine pairings are an additional $85. If you’re not into vino, other pairings are $50. You can get any beverage a la carte including beer, wine, cocktails, sodas, coffees, and teas.
And as this is no ordinary dinner, McCrady’s has given would-be diners a helpful FAQ sheet to help them avoid any etiquette faux pas like using a flash while Instagramming dinner. That and more here:

We ask that you please silence your phone and keep your phones and cameras off your table and the kitchen counter during your meal.
Can I get a refund once purchased? Can I exchange my booking for a different night? Just like a sporting event, concert, or theater ticket all sales are final. Exceptions may be made at the restaurant’s discretion; however, bookings of all types are always transferable. You can review all your confirmed bookings and/or transfer your bookings from your /react-text Tock profile react-text: 76 . /react-text
Can I give my booking away or sell it? Yes. The booking is completely transferable. However, selling bookings for greater than face value may be illegal in your area. Anyone who purchases a booking from another patron should take care to be sure that the beverage pairing options are as claimed by requesting both an email confirmation from us as well as a printed receipt from the seller. Any bookings purchased on the secondary market are at the purchaser’s risk. We will not be held responsible for forgeries or misrepresentations. Bookings are transferable, but we strongly encourage anyone considering buying bookings from any other source to refrain from doing so without confirmation from us. To transfer a booking, go to the “My Account” area using the upper rightnavigation pane and select “Your Bookings”. Each booking has a transfer button next to it.
I already have a Tock account and want to see my existing bookings, what do I do? You will need to login to your account by clicking on the upper right navigation pane. Enter the email for your existing account and you will receive a confirmation code to verify your account.
Will I be able to see my previous purchases? Yes, all bookings purchased (used and unused) will be in your account. If you do not see your bookings, please confirm that the email you used to purchase the booking is the same.
Why do I get charged when adding a credit card? Adding a credit card may require a small test charge to validate your account. Don’t worry, this is just a test and the charge will disappear from your statement.
