Chef Sean Brock's (Husk) new casual Mexican-inspired restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina will be called Minero. According to Eater Charleston, both the logo and name were (perhaps inadvertently) revealed yesterday in a (now deleted) blog post from graphic designer Gil Shuler, who has created logos for Brock before. Brock's reps have confirmed to Charleston City Paper that the name is indeed Minero, which translates to "miners." Apparently, "Mexican miners used to wrap their explosives in paper and called them tacos."
Minero is slated to be a "small and affordable" concept that will open next to Brock's restaurant McCrady's, in a former wine bar. The restaurant was supposed to open this Summer, but the team revealed earlier this week that "they don't expect to make their original deadline." It will be a busy Fall for Brock, whose first cookbook, Heritage will be released on October 21.
