Charleston SC 29401
The first of two restaurants on this list from chef Sean Brock (the second is McCrady’s at number 69), Husk is known for its focus on regional Southern ingredients. The menu, which changes daily, is full of elevated down-home dishes, such as Southern-fried chicken skins, pan-fried bologna with house-made mustard and pickles, and Heritage pork with pit-cooked smoky beans, heirloom kale, and pot likker broth. The only thing more charming than the fact that much of their produce comes from a garden out back is that the chefs are known for personally delivering orders to diners. And the good news?

Brock isn't reinventing Southern food. As a result, he (and Husk) has become a torchbearer for an honest style of home cooking that many of us never tasted until now.
Chef Sean Brock knows that the only thing better than a cheeseburger is a bacon cheeseburger. What sets this $10 version apart is the infused Benton's bacon into the locally sourced grass-fed beef.
Chef Sean Brock, who was named best chef in the Southeast in the 2010 James Beard Awards, raises, butchers and smokes his own hogs.
Try the Buffyaki wings! They are amazing!

Best bar ever. And Meg is the cutest, most attentive cocktail server ever!
The Bar at Husk (brick building next door to the restaurant) has an amazing cocktail menu
best new restaurant in Charleston
I'll take the suckling pig with a side porch, please.
Start with drinks at the bar - we loved the Debutante Punch. The Bacon Skillet Cornbread is also not to be missed!
Crispy pig ear lettuce wraps are out of this world.
Made our South's Best List! The hyper-local menu changes daily, but the cornbread is constant—crisp, scented with Benton’s bacon, and piping hot in a mini cast-iron skillet.
Have to try the pig ear lettuce wraps! Be adventurous. They are soo good! Its crispy and the sauce is excellent!
Tim or Megan...both awesome bartenders, full of knowledge and worthy of gratuitous tipping
Try the dreamcatcher. It's a caprese salad in a glass! Very unique cocktail.
the Swizzle and the Copper Lantern are amazing
The manhattan is a solid drink choice at husk bar
Southern screwdriver....do it.
Must try the cheeseburger and the biscuits and gravy at lunch. Amazing!
Bar is detached to the right of the main building. Good regional beer selection starting at $5. Always some Coast and Westbrook.
Great restaurant helmed by Sean Brock. Whatever you do, get the fried pig ear appetizer - one of the best things I've ever eaten!
Go to the bar next door for great drinks. Try the swizzle and the perplexing
One-hour wait at 12:45. Sat right down at toast a block away.
The Monte Cristo was maybe the most delicious things I've ever eaten. A must get!
From #TLSponChat: “@RosanneVogel: I had a great meal at Husk in August. Best pork chop ever.”
This might be one of the best meals I've ever eaten. I also love the little baskets the bread comes in. I ha the red porgy and clams...flavor to die for.
If you come to Charleston you HAVE to eat here at least once or three times. Start with the Dragoon Punch or a cider wine. Food and service are top notch served in an older beautiful building.
go here first and most often
order the Corn Bread it's a must have if availabe.
Infamously blended with bacon (see a full rundown on what this entails), the burger at Sean Brock's Husk in Charleston is a pilgrimage to be made by any burger fanatic.
Imbibe Magazine recognized Husk for pouring some of the Best Contemporary Cocktails in the South in their March/April 2011 Southern Issue.
Try the crispy pig ear lettuce wraps for an appetizer and the Arnold Palmer for dessert, amazing!
Fried chicken skins with pimento cheese worth every calorie
Try the Kentuckyaki Glazed Pig Ear Lettuce Wraps With Sweet Vinegar Marinated Cucumbers And Red Onion - Surprisingly awesome! (via @Foodspotting)
