ChefDillon Shine

Cynthia Hayes, gallery director, and co-owners, Mark Kelvin Horton and his wife, Nancy Cagan Horton, have more than 15 years of combined gallery experience. This year, the inspired works at Horton Hayes Fine Art will be complimented during the Palette & Palate Stroll by a new face to Charleston’s cuisine scene, Shine. Pioneered by Executive Chef Dillon Snyder, Shine is described as a unique and eclectic dining establishment, inspired by the best of international street food and the traditional American diner. Chef Dillon’s primary goal when designing the menu was to create food that he himself loved to eat, plain and simple. Dillon enjoys utilizing local ingredients as often as possible to bring light to fresh flavors. What resulted is a beacon for whimsical cuisine in a city where cuisine is taken rather seriously. Dillon believes that a great experience with great food can be achieved without the pretense of traditional restaurant atmosphere.  Shine is located at 58 Line Street in Charleston, South Carolina.
