Chef Teddy Diggs of Il Palio restaurant in The Siena Hotel in Chapel Hill was named one of “16 Chefs to watch in 2016” by Restaurant Hospitality magazine.

Here’s the magazine’s blurb about Diggs: “Diggs has cooked at the Martha’s Vineyard spot where the Obama family dined, reportedly launched the smoking trend in DC and, most recently, guided Il Palio through its first major renovation in nearly three decades. He used the makeover time to launch an entirely new menu featuring one ingredient, smoke, with the help of a custom wood-fired grill. Both the interior and the menu were tailored specifically to Millennials, with features like a large communal chef’s table, open kitchen and foods designed for sharing.”
