Local hero Sean Brock is the most award-winning chef in Charleston, and Husk, his labor of love, topped Bon Appétit's list of the best American restaurant debuts of 2011. The menu, which changes daily, focuses on fresh, exclusively Southern ingredients and invigorating reinterpretations of Southern and Lowcountry cuisine, from fried green tomatoes with pimiento cheese and country ham to knockout crispy pig ears and fried chicken skins. There are some all-American classics on the menu, too, including the signature Husk cheeseburger, a kind of haute upgrade of In-N-Out's. Much like the cuisine, the restaurant's digs—on Queen Street, at the tip of downtown Charleston's main shopping drag—combine the traditional with the new. The two-story, columned exterior is straight out of Gone With the Wind, yet the airy main room presents diners with an open kitchen and minimalist glass artwork. If weather permits, request a table on the second-floor porch. And be sure to arrive early (or stay late) enough to sip a cocktail at the bar next door—the Herbal Tea cocktail, made of chamomile-infused vodka with a splash of fresh lemon juice and lime caviar, is particularly recommended, as is the Carrot Apple Slaw, with house-made apple brandy, rum, Pernod, and carrot and lemon juice over ice with fennel fronds.—Carolina Santos-Neves, originally published on
