Vedrinski selected by Wine Spectator as one of top Italian chefs for cover story

  • Thursday, August 22, 2013


Chef Ken Vedrinski is having a banner year and it is only August. Accolades have been strong for the recent opening of his oceanfront restaurant, Coda del Pesce. This includes the recent announcement that Vedrinski has been named one of Wine Spectator magazine’s top Italian chefs in America for its September issue cover story. Wine Spectator selected six of the country’s best chefs to highlight in the issue and each chef has a large profile and recipe in the issue. Vedrinski is in good company as he joins Michael White (Marea, New York), Dena Marino (MC Kitchen, Miami), Celestino Drago (Drago Centro, Los Angeles), Jonathan Benno (Lincoln Ristorante, New York) and Matthew Accarrino (SPQR, San Francisco) for the feature.

The magazine sent a writer and photographer to Charleston to capture Vedrinski in his new place and to learn more about the background of this accomplished chef. The September issue hits the newsstands soon.

“This is one of my greatest culinary accomplishments to date,” stated Chef Ken Vedrinski. “Wine Spectator is such a highly regarding publication and they rarely do cover articles on restaurants. To be part of it and to be in the mix with these other world-renowned chefs means a lot. We are also extremely proud of our Italian focused food and wine program and thrilled that it was recognized by the industry’s leading publication.”

One of the most acclaimed and accomplished chefs in Charleston, Vedrinski is the chef and owner of Trattoria Lucca in downtown and the newly opened Coda del Pesce, the city’s first Italian inspired seafood restaurant overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. He has been on the long list for the James Beard Awards in the Southeast Chef category for three years and his restaurants have been selected as Esquire’s Best New Restaurant and Best Italian Restaurant by Travel & Leisure.
