And if you can’t make it to Charleston, a second outpost opened in Nashville last year

Fried chicken skins with pimento cheese worth every calorie

Came here for Dinner at 6pm on a sunday and was told there was a 25 minute wait. After waiting ten minutes and noticing there were only two tables in the dining room that had people at them, we left.

Start with drinks at the bar - we loved the Debutante Punch. The Bacon Skillet Cornbread is also not to be missed!

Imbibe Magazine recognized Husk for pouring some of the Best Contemporary Cocktails in the South in their March/April 2011 Southern Issue.

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.

Try the Buffyaki wings! They are amazing!

The manhattan is a solid drink choice at husk bar
Bon Appetit Magazine
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.
