Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

Graphic design guru Gil Shuler let the cat out of the bag, this morning, and revealed chef Sean Brock's not-yet-named restaurant will be called Minero. Shuler's company has worked with many local establishments, including Husk, to create memorable branding and logos. City Paper noticed a tweet from Shuler and followed up with the public relations team to confirm.

What's a minero? According to the post, "the name is spanish [sic] for miners — mexican [sic] miners used to wrap their explosives in paper and called them tacos." The blog entry has since disappeared (too soon on the reveal?), but Eater has a screen shot here.
