Scott Crawford has left The Umstead Hotel and Spa and Herons restaurant to open up two new ventures in downtown Raleigh, Standard Foods and Nash Tavern. Pastry chef Daniel Benjamin is opening a new pastry shop, lucettegrace, also in downtown Raleigh.

Steven Greene was named the Executive Chef of The Umstead today, and he’ll remain in place as the Culinary Director at An, one of the best restaurants in the state. (and yes, I am the “V” in the 5-star review Greg Cox gave An)

All of these gentlemen are good friends of mine, and I’ve written pretty extensively about Scott and Steven, with a couple of mentions about Daniel.

Here’s my story on my first meeting with Scott Crawford.

This is my recollection of the first time I ate Scott’s food at Herons.

I first met Steven Greene when I spent two nights cooking at Herons. He was the Executive Chef de Cuisine, working under Scott Crawford. I also spent some time with Daniel Benjamin while I was there. And I wrote a three-part story on my wonderful experience. Part 1. Part 2. Part 3.

And I recently wrote a feature profile on Steven Greene for Walter Magazine.

Good luck to Scott, Steven and Daniel!
