    Context: I'm a cook. Worked for +10yrs @ michelin starred rests. HUSK is where chefs eat at & should. Lovely simple food, produce is taken care of rather than put through it's paces. Great drinks too.

    Best meal I had in Nashville. Amazing bourbon and rye selection. Ordered all of the first courses and three entrees which all delivered. I will always remember the catfish main course.

    Between the Husk in Charleston and the Nashville location that opened three years later, Tennessee takes the edge for pushing the extremes between classical and modern Southern cooking ever further. Read more

    #FabuLIST #DubiDO order a bunch of appetizers rather than getting a main meal. I loved the mushrooms, pork buns, and ribs. Ask to be seated in the main room with open windows. DubiDONT beef entree.

    "A plate of southern vegetables" sounds like an unimpressive vegetarian option, but it's seriously one of the best meals I've ever had. Also incredibly filling

    The veggie plate is unreal. All my meat-loving friends were jealous of my dish for a change. +Bourbon! If you're unsure of bourbon, try the Chestnut Filly- not too strong but refreshing and delish.

    Everything was sooo good. Country style steak with pepper gravy, catfish with veggies, and the burger was just awesome. Great mix of spices and flavor in an awesome setting.

    Fresh, modern take on Southern food in a cozy, sleek house. Second location of famed Husk in Charleston. Don't skip the delicious cocktails. Love the homemade charcuterie and the burger.

    Who knew Southern food could be done with such flourish? Chef Sean Brock does an amazing job of creating a menu that's both innovative and authentic. Get the Southern vegetables!

    Everything you heard... Was an understatement. The staff (especially the mixologist) was great. Everything starting with the bread to the food was fantastic. I will be back!

    This place is amazing. Southern comfort food. The burger. The catfish. The wings. Fried chicken. We pretty much are the menu again. Best wait staff. Keeps a smile on your face.

    Do yourself a favor and check this place out! The burgers rolling out of Sean Brock's Southern kitchen are some of the best in the country.

    Great selection of rare bourbons but you must ask for the additional bourbon list. Head down to the bar if you missed out on a reservation.

    Never can go wrong at Husk! Their menu changes daily. The cheese burger is not you average burger. So good! Fried chicken is spicy. Great cocktails!

    With Tim Moody now running the kitchen, pastry chef Lisa Donovan's desserts continuing to impress and quite possibly the best bourbon list in the city, this one is here to stay. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    With Morgan McGlone driving the ever-changing menu, Lisa Donovan kicking out her signature desserts, and quite possibly the best bourbon selection in the city, don't expect this one to cool off.

    Country Vegetable dish was very unique and flavorful, especially the grits in mushroom and broth. Biscuits & Gravy were very tasty! Burger comes with TWO patties! Get the Pimento Cheese & Wafers!

    A friendly environment with elegant design, a connection with the restaurant rarely find from coast. Great food, unfortunately I didn't try their whisky.

    Deviled eggs w/ smoked trout roe go fast, as do crisp chicken wings w/ the lemony condiment “comeback sauce." Even a dedicated meat-eater can get behind the Plate of Southern Vegetables. Read more

    A truly wonderful experience and must go to when in Nashville. Great wine list. Get the vegetarian plate! It was incredible.

    Amazing food. Amazing drinks, especially if you enjoy proper bourbon. It is worth noting that the bartender Jessica is not worth her weight. She was very out of depth and deceptive. Avoid her.

    Everything. The food was reminiscent of what our Southern grandmothers and mothers might have cooked. The Johnny cakes were so fluffy, and the atmosphere felt like being in someone's home.

    This is a must stop in Nashville. Great, flavorful food. They are not afraid to spice it up. I enjoyed the country veggie plate. It had a lot of great variety.

    Husk is located in Rutledge Hill—in the heart of Downtown Nashville. The kitchen reinterprets the bounty of the surrounding area, exploring a cuisine that redefines what it means to eat in Nashville.

    nice space, service is very knowledgable and helpful, menu changes daily so hard to recommend dishes, but the charcuterie and pork belly sliders were the most memorable.

    It’s no secret that we love Sean Brock and we’ve already told you how we feel about Pastry Chef Lisa Donovan, so really the only thing left to say is make time to check out this breathtaking space.

    Awesome place all and all, Farm Pork is a great food choice. Oh, and if you're downstairs always ask for Kevin as your bartender.

    If you ask really nicely they will bring you extra rolls. Pretty sure that benne seeds are actually crack, so trust me, you will want them.

    The appetizers are better than the entrees. Try the clams and the bone marrow. Good beer selection too - the yazoo porter was incredible
