Bon Appetit Magazine's September issue has just declared Husk, a Charleston restaurant, as No. 1 on its list of 'Top 10 Best New Restaurants in America.'
Husk restaurant in Charleston’s historic district has received the magazine's honor. The magazine is one of the nation's best known food publications and has a circulation of 1.5 million.
The magazine is one of the country's largest and best known food publications with a circulation of 1.5 million.
There was icing on the cake too. Husk's signature skillet-roasted chicken is splashed across the cover.
Charleston's reputation as a foodie city has been steadily transitioning from word-of-mouth endorsements to more public forms of recognition.
Here are some other Charleston distinctions:
- Local chefs Robert Stehling of Hominy Grill, Mike Lata of FIG and Brock of Hust won consecutive Best Chef Southeast awards from the James Beard Foundation, from 2008-2010.
- The BB&T Wine + Food Festival is ranked as one of the nation's top five such festivals by Forbes Traveler.
- Food Network magazine recently named EVO pizza in North Charleston as one of the 50 best pies in the country.
- Southern Living also chose Husk, as Best New Restaurant in the South this year and will be a partner in October's Taste of Charleston for the first time.
Husk created an industry buzz when its concept was unveiled a year ago, followed by the restaurant's opening in November. The Chef, Brock, had the idea to change the menus twice daily based on ingredients obtained solely in the South.
This restaurant pushes the boundaries of farm-to-table dining by highlighting individual farmers and producers and telling their stories.
You have plenty of places to go and eat living in an apartment in Charleston, SC, Bon Apetit!
