Parcel 32, a new restaurant coming to 442 King St. in the spring, has hired Shaun Brian Sells as chef de cuisine and Stafford Boatman as sous chef.
Sells graduated from Johnson & Wales and has been named a "30 Under 30" chef by Zagat. Boatman joined Patrick Properties Hospitality Group in 2016 as sous chef for event catering. He has 12 years' culinary experience.
Sells and Boatman join executive chef Digby Stridiron in developing the menu, which will focus on Carolina heritage by using fresh herbs, produce, meats and fish from local farms and fishermen.
Early bird tickets are $75; tickets bought after March 7 will be $85.
The event is $5 to attend, with proceeds benefiting the restaurant’s current charity partner, Operation Home.
