No Southern restaurant is more celebrated than Husk, whose chef, Sean Brock, has been championed nationwide for his devotion to heirloom produce and tail to snout cuts of meat. In a mansion straight out of Gone with the Wind on the edge of Downtown, the ultra seasonal menu from crispy pig ears and cornmeal dusted catfish to Altantic swordfish and sorghum glazed chicken served on the porch or in the glass walled dining room. Arrive early for a drink at the adjacent (and equally historic) red brick bar.
Two Boroughs Larder
One part cosy café, one part ambitious gastropub, Two Boroughs Larder lures both foodies and hipsters with its recycled, wooden walls, simple metal seating and hearty, healthy (ish) fare. Owners Heather and Josh Keeler dish up instant classics such as broth ramen noodles with locally sourced pork confit, along with fresh market greens doused in cider vinegar and studded with pickled raisins. If you like what you see – and taste – many of the handcrafted beers, cheeses and charcuterrie are for sale.
