We had a great dinner at Husk last night. We’re local, and we haven’t been there in a while, but we were pleased to see that they haven’t lost their edge. Cocktails in the bar next door were perfectly served … some nice E. H. Taylor bourbon on the rocks.
Each of us had starters: I had roasted oysters garnished with a touch of kimchee. Extraordinary. Could have knocked down a half-dozen more.
Entrées were right on. One of our party had a beautiful hunk of swordfish (a little brown crust on top, perfectly cooked in the middle), and another had the catfish. I went with the flatiron steak. Melt in your mouth goodness.
We also indulged in the hop ‘n John side and, of course, the obligatory corn bread.
Everything was top-notch, and we were impressed that the folks at Husk are remaining true to their roots and mixing it up with all of these fresh local ingredients, prepared in innovative and imaginative ways. Nothing over the top or pretentious – just good food with LOTS of great flavors. And impeccable service.
