An oldie but goodie and SouthPark favorite, Upstream has been consistently delicious every time I’ve visited (the first being back in 2015 for my birthday).
New Executive Chef Sam Diminich brings no exceptions.
Chef Diminich has 18 years of experience in the biz and grew up in his family’s Italian restaurant in Myrtle Beach, SC. He studied at the Culinary Institute of America, took on his apprenticeship in Philly, and went on to cook in D.C., Raleigh, Charleston, and beyond. He even served as sous chef at Upstream in 2003 and most recently worked his magic at Hamptons in Sumter, SC.
Welcome back, Chef!
I recently tried a few of Chef Diminich’s dishes and am happy to report that loyal Upstream fans will be perfectly pleased with the new leadership.
Impressed?? Upstream is currently participating in Queen’s Feast, so now’s the perfect time to make a reservation. (January 18 – 27, 2019)
This post was created after a complimentary meal from Upstream. All opinions are my own.
