Charleston's Muse restaurant to lose Chef Jason Houser

Tucked quietly away on Society Street is what seems to be (from the lack of coverage) one of downtown's best kept dining secrets, Muse Restaurant and Wine Bar

According to the City Paper, they are losing one of downtown's other best kept dining secrets, Chef Jason Houser.

Chef Houser was nominated for a James Beard Award for Best Chef Southeast a mere year after writing the Muse menu.  I've celebrated New Year's Eve and gathered with friends there many times, enjoying the old-Charleston-house atmosphere and the incredible Mediterranean fare.

You can check out Houser's full bio on Muse's Web site, at least for now.

Full disclosure, I love his food, but House is a personal friend.  I wish him the best and look forward to eating his food again soon, regardless of where he lands.
