Husk Nashville: This Week's Restaurant Review

In today's Dining column in the Scene, restaurant critic Carrington Fox gives her report on one of the most high-profile restaurants ever to open in this city, Husk Nashville, chef Sean Brock's sister restaurant to his celebrated Husk in Charleston, S.C.

Interestingly, Fox has two very different tales to tell: an evening meal that she describes as "a sultry, lips-parted love story of burning romance between a diner and her food," with her as the "besotted diner" swept up "Brock's dual passions for culinary tradition and modern technology."

After the feverishly satisfying dinner, Fox says, "We conceded that the hype about Husk Nashville is justified. We understood why the crowded dining room and bustling bar were dotted with chefs and owners from Nashville's 'It City' restaurant scene."

Then the review concludes with what Fox calls the "less engrossing" story of a disappointing lunch. Read the whole thing here.

What do you say, Bitesters? Anybody ready to comment on lunch vs. dinner at Husk? Is it wise to hold off on lunch and wait the time required to secure a reservation for dinner? And isn't is always puzzling when a restaurant shows a discrepancy between its midday and evening experiences?
