After completing six years of service, he brought his experience to Julep's. He enjoys translating experience into new recipes. Chef Devin joined the Julep's family in 2013. He attended culinary school in his home state of New Jersey and honed his skills in steakhouses and pubs throughout the Shore before relocating to SC. A Southerner at heart, Chef Devin's passion is designing seasonal dishes utilizing the best in local ingredients. Mixologist Nikki joined the Julep's family in 2013. She began mixing up cocktails in her home state of New Jersey and quickly found she has a natural talent for hospitality.
