Husk - Charleston, SC

Dinner - Thursday, December 26, 2013

Husk really needs no introduction - the restaurant and Sean Brock have received saturating levels of national press for its commitment to using (and reviving) Southern ingredients.

All the food served at the restaurant is sourced from a region bordered to the north by the Mason-Dixon line, and to the west by Texas. Now, provenance is one thing, but taste is a completely separate matter - I must admit to being a little skeptical of all the hype. Thus, we arrived at dinner with a small degree of trepidation, hoping that the evening would not bomb out. I'm happy to report that it exceeded expectations, and ended up being our favourite meal in Charleston.
