Just "Husk" It

I often read The New York Times "Dining & Wine" section feeling quite sad as I don't think I will ever eat at half of the restaurants they are discussing, however, this morning I practically jumped out of my chair as there is an article about "Husk" (Charleston, SC) on the front page, woop woop!

After a looong run around the Battery on the morning of New Year's Eve, my Aunt Susan and I had a busy day visiting the Charleston Museum (my old stomping grounds as an intern one summer in college) and the Aiken-Rhett House. I suppose at this point you can probably tell that my infatuation for all things history-related is genetic. Anyway, at about 2:00 we were famished. We had reservations for a late lunch and I was so hungry I wanted to run up the stairs, past our hostess to get to our table. It would have been moritifying for Aunt Susan worth it...

We had the:
  • Fried Bread & Butter Pickles with Tarragon Cream (I am a fried pickle connoisseur and these were A-maz-ing)
  • HUSK Cheeseburger, Chipped Fries (This is what I ordered for a meal, I was desperately craving a cheeseburger and this did not disappoint, maybe the best cheeseburger I have ever had and that is saying alot)
  • VA Lamb BBQ Sandwich, Vinegar Sauce, Joseph Fields Cabbage and Carrot Slaw, Chipped Fries (This is what Aunt Susan ordered and I had extreme order envy)
And yes, in case you were wondering, I did search their menu archives in order to provide you all with a complete, and accurate description of our meal that day. You're welcome.

All of "Husk"'s ingredients a fresh, and Southern grown. It is truly a "farm-to-table" sort of place, which I love. Their wine list is also divided up by the sort of soil that the grapes are grown in, sort of a fun feature. Also, their menu changes everyday depending on the market so I am dying to go back and try something else. The decor, conversation, and experience we fantastic so I highly recommend it. Um, and they serve brunch on Sundays, what is not to like!?!

Thanks for reading & happy eating!
