I had the last bit of Christmas shopping to do and I couldn't avoid it any longer. I had to go to one of the most traffic congested areas of Nashville, Green Hills! Before heading into the belly of the beast, I figured a fortifying brunch was in order. I have yet to snag a dinner reservation, but booking a table for brunch at Husk seems to be pretty easy.
Husk is just down the road in Rutledge Hill and I've always had my eye on that cool old house.
It was all decked out for the holidays and welcoming on a very cold winter day.
The obligatory brunch beverage, the Bloody Mary.
We were a bit ambitious with the starters. More than likely I wouldn't eat again for the rest of the day, so I felt justified.
My love for biscuits and gravy knows no end but if you screw them up I will walk the hell out!
After one bite of White Lily Biscuits with Black Pepper and Husk Sausage Gravy, I wasn't going anywhere.
It's the holidays so I wasn't about to pass up the Bear Creek Farm Bone Marrow, Parsley Biscuit, Sweet Onion Preserves. It's like cave man butter!
Adam Musick Pork Belly “Monte Cristo”, TN Cheddar, Fried Farm Egg, Confit Potato Hash. How can you go wrong with pork belly and a drippy fried egg.
SC Shrimp, Grits, Preserved Tomato Broth, Shiitake, Wedge Oak Farm Egg was probably the most indulgent shrimp and grits I've ever had. The shrimp were huge and cooked perfectly and the yoke from the egg made the sauce beyond rich.
Continuing with the hedonistic theme of the morning, we ordered dessert.
Pumpkin Buttermilk Pie.
Absolutely full up, we resisted the urge to take a nap and conquered the remainder of the Christmas list. The Hillsboro parking lot didn't seem so bad.
Husk's menu is updated twice a day. You can check it on their website before you go or you can be surprised which is way more fun. Besides, more than likely you have had the reservation for a month and what are going to do, cancel it? If you do, let me know. I'll take it!
