The opening of Husk solidified Charleston’s position as the top city in Southern dining, and it elevated executive chef Sean Brock to international celebrity. In October 2011, Bon Appétit declared it the best new restaurant in America, and countless visiting chefs and culinary pilgrims made their way to Charleston to see what all the fuss was about. What seemed bold and radical just two years ago has since become the dominant mode in New Southern dining: putting purveyors front and center, focusing on local and heirloom ingredients, cooking over wood, and using traditional pickling and preservation techniques to intensify flavor. Some of the more dramatic crowd-pleasers — pig’s ear lettuce wraps, fried chicken skins, and skillets of wood-fired cornbread — have become menu mainstays, but the offerings still change daily, bringing novelties like seed-crusted triggerfish, Blue Ridge bison short ribs, and antebellum brown oyster stew. The Bar at Husk keeps moving forward too, evolving beyond its initial incarnation as a temple of bourbon to become one of the city’s most innovative, ingredients-driven cocktail spots. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2013)
