Husk Adds Lunch and Brunch; GM Talks About First Two Weeks

Two weeks ago the big news was the opening of Husk Nashville, the sister restaurant to Sean Brock’s Charleston, S.C., shrine to Southern ingredients and folkways. Dinner reservations got snapped up. This week Husk started serving lunch, providing more chances for people to try the cuisine dreamed up by Brock and his chef de cuisine in Nashville, Morgan McGlone. In addition, this weekend Husk is adding Saturday and Sunday brunch.

Husk changes its menu twice a day, based on freshest ingredients available, but you can check out current and previous menus on the Husk website, where you can also book reservations.

Meanwhile, Husk general manager Dan Latimer, talked to Eater about what the first two weeks have been like:

"Is there anything you found that works in Charleston but doesn't work in Nashville?"

Latimer: Yes and no. Systematically, if you're friendly and you care about what you're cooking and you cook and service with passion and pride, those things translate anywhere. The cuisine is different here because the seasons are different, the growing climate is different. We're not coastal in Nashville so the abundance of seafood is different. But then we found beautiful plants that just don't grow in the low country's climate. So definitely there are opportunities for us here in Nashville that we don't have in Charleston, and vice versa, just by geographic nature alone.

Latimer said they've made a few tweaks in the first couple weeks. "There's always tweaks. ... I think that in any restaurant opening, and especially one with as much anticipation as this, there are challenges. ...That's what makes it exciting. But I wouldn't say that we've come upon anything and tripped and fallen. It's a lot more fine-tuning and getting everything hitting on all cylinders."

Husk is at 37 Rutledge St. 256-6565. Here are the new hours: Lunch: 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. Brunch: 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Dinner: 5:30-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 5:30-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
