There is no way that I can visit Nashville and not tell you about the amazing food that you will find there. I thought that Maine and Austin were great but goodness gracious to Betsy!!!! Nashveeeeeele, as Hugh Smith always said that I pronounced it has got fine dining with a unique twist down to an art form.
When I went to the Husk tonight, https://husknashville.com/food/menu/ as was suggested by a nice family at my afternoon coffee jaunt, I thought it could not keep pace with the others I had already tried. ( Oh my that is a run on sentence for sho!!!!)
For one the place is elegantly beautiful and I suspect I did not fit in with the dress code, but my jacket was adorable so maybe I got points for that. Because I am traveling alone I usually sit at the bar to eat and read my kindle and I am entertained by all the other humans. I will say no one was really dressed too fancy and if you need to know I think they have their dress code posted.
Two things that I ordered because I just had to was Pimento cheese, pancetta and pickled serano with Benne wafers. I was skeptical because I am a tight critic when it comes to Pimento cheese. My grandmother was my standard for this southern fare, and sorry Mom (my grandmas name) it was the BEST!!!!! And of course I had to order skillet Hearth Corn bread in an iron skillet Y’ALL!!! With butter it was better than desert. YES those that are wondering, I am still sugar free since the 7th for our 21 day fast at church.
Just in case you go there this is what I chose for entree and be warned I was not able to finish any of it. This would have been a good time to have someone to share the meal with, it was too much for me. Bear creek Farm Beef, Farmer Daves cabbage, Carolina rice and boy Choy. Thanks a lot, Farmer Dave and friends for ruining it for regular rice!!!
This is how the folks at Husk summed up their philosophy: “At Husk there are some rules about what can go on the plate. It is doesn’t come from the South it’s not coming through the door.”
