Last week, executive chef Nathan Thurston of Stars Restaurant announced his departure at the end of this month. When Thurston leaves, the fine dining establishment plans to promote chef Joe DiMaio to the executive position.
DiMaio joined Stars two years ago and stated that he is honored to take over the role. He also said he wants to "keep the vision of Stars and will bring new versions of Carolina cuisine." DiMaio previously worked at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort and the now shuttered Mercato.
Operating partner Keith Jones stated they were happy to find Thurston's replacement within their own kitchen.
