Husk Restaurant has become a must visit in the Nashville food scene. Every ingredient has Southern roots, so you can trust that you’re eating local goodness with every bite. When you walk into the converted house, one of the first things you’ll see is a board listing all of the ingredients used in the kitchen and where they originated.
Check out their brunch menu on Saturdays and Sundays. You should definitely come hungry – the food is decadent and the servings are generous. And come back often! The menu changes constantly based on which ingredients are in season, so you’ll get to try new dishes each time you visit.
We started with the pimento cheese and wafer appetizer: tangy, not-too-sharp cheddar cheese that was so good we spread it on the house pretzel rolls too. For the main course, we ordered the french toast and Southern vegetable plate. If you like something sweet for breakfast, these fluffy slices of toast with peanut butter in between, topped with Chantilly cream and cooked apples will do the trick.
The Southern vegetable plate came with four vegetables: carrot salad with a vinaigrette and walnuts, steel cut oatmeal with cinnamon apples, Bibb lettuce with a creamy house-made dressing, and Southern grits mixed with cooked greens and topped with a poached egg.
Looking for a Southern standout? Try the shrimp and grits or the Bear Creek Farm country fried steak, with a fried farm egg, white gravy, and potato hash. Is your mouth watering yet?
And because brunch is really all about imbibing, make a reservation and come early to sit at the bar downstairs with views of the garden out back. Order a mimosa or Bloody Mary to get your brunch started right. Or choose from their impressive cocktail menu, which also includes non-alcoholic specialties and classic Southern sodas.
Don’t miss out on Husk brunch!
