Atlanticville’s Executive Chef William “Billy” Condon won first place in Boone Hall Plantation’s Oyster Recipe Contest during their annual Oyster Roast this past Sunday, January 31. With oysters as the star ingredient, the contest pits some of Charleston’s finest chefs head-to-head in a briny culinary battle. This was Atlanticville’s first win in the competition and their second year competing.
Chef Condon’s recipe was the resounding favorite, featuring South Carolina May River Pecan Fried Oysters over a smoked vidalia tomato fondue with lemon orzo pasta, country ham and tomato topped with crispy collard greens.
“We are grateful for this award,” said Chef Condon. “Atlanticville is once again demonstrating its place among Charleston’s finest restaurants. Our customers enjoy an upscale dining experience without being stuffy. Our location on Sullivan’s Island and our great staff only reinforce this casual elegance.”
Atlanticville will feature their award winning recipe as a special to their regular menu. “We were pleased with the response and look forward to sharing it with our customers,” said Condon.
