A Charleston restaurant that was named one of the best new restaurants in the nation last year by Bon Appetit magazine is now being sued in a DUI case.
32-year-old Quentin Miller of Mount Pleasant was killed in a fiery crash on the Ravenel bridge December 17 after his Ford Mustang was rear-ended by Adam Burnell. Burnell is the assistant manager of the restaurant Husk. He was charged with felony DUI at the time.
Now Miller’s family is suing the restaurant, claiming that Burnell was allowed to excessively drink after Husk closed hours before that fatal crash occurred. The lawsuit filed last week claims gross negligence on the part of the restaurant, which is owned by the Neighborhood Dining Group.
Neighborhood Dining Group released a statement Wednesday, saying they could not comment on the case due to legal complexities.
