Husk Brunch disappointed me. With all this focus on "pure Southern food," why, in the name of the holy city, is there an in-and-out burger on the menu? The day of my visit, the "pantry" didn't allow for any menu item which included cheese and eggs in the same dish (including the omlet), and the pancakes were burned. The bacon was an upsetting color and not edible, and when we remarked to our server, his excuse was that the Chef butchers his own meat.
The options for my vegetarian friend were very limited, although the chef did offer to make her an omlet with egg whites - but still no cheese. We asked. The answer was no. The bloody mary was virtually ungarnished, small, and expensive. We didn't know there were beignets until we received the dessert menu, at which point we weren't willing to take the risk and we'd already had enough coffee. Our server was helpful and did a great job, encouraging us to fill out a comment card and taking the bacon off of our check.
I can burn my own pancakes, and omlets without cheeese depress me. Sigh. Since it is so lardcore, maybe it should be called Rinds instead of Husk.
