Langhorne returned to his mid-Atlantic roots at The Dabney in Washington, DC after five years at McCrady’s restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina, where he worked as chef de cuisine under Executive Chef Sean Brock. He will focus on modern American food with strong regional and historic influences and incorporate his interests in foraging, charcuterie and farming.
While at McCrady’s, Langhorne oversaw day-to-day operations at and managed a staff of over 20 employees. He worked daily with Brock and local farmers and purveyors to craft each night’s menu out of the freshest and finest products. Langhorne’s first foray into the restaurant world was at a small Italian restaurant in his hometown of Charlottesville, VA. Watching the restaurant’s kitchen staff work on a new dish – a creative and spontaneous process – inspired Langhorne to seek out further learning opportunities. He began with an externship at the acclaimed OXO restaurant in Charlottesville, where he learned under the classically trained English Chef John Haywood and soon became a part of the kitchen staff. By the time he left, Langhorne was executive sous chef.
Langhorne came to the Southeast to stage at McCrady’s in 2009. After completing a two-month stage at Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark, Langhorne returned to McCrady’s to take over as sous chef. He was promoted to chef de cuisine in spring 2011.
Notable recognitions for Langhorne include being named as a member of the inaugural Eater Young Guns class in 2012, being chosen as one of the “Top 5 Rising Chefs in the US” in 2012 by Gayot and being featured in the “New + Notable” class at the 2013 Charleston Wine + Food Festival. The Dabney was also a semi-finalist for the 2016 James Beard Foundation Award for Best New Restaurant.
