who's number one? husk's number one.

Wednesday night we went to dinner to celebrate our dear friend Courtney's birthday and we knew exactly where we wanted to go. Husk.
Husk sound familiar? It may if you read Bon Appetit's Restaurant Issue as Husk was named the #1 best new restaurant. In. The. Country. 
We lucked out even further as it happened to be the start of Restaurant Week here in Charleston so not only did we get a bangin' meal (as my hubs would say), we got it for an amazing prize.
That's what you call a win/win people.
{half of my dinner dates for the evening}

{yes, you read that correctly. Fried. Chicken. SKINS.}

{Guy's dish. Husk is known for their pork. They have pork fat butter and pork infused cornbread. Need I say more?}

{my dish. arguably the best dish of the evening}

{there are no words. this looks unassuming but had BIG taste.}

Oh Charleston restaurant scene.... how I love thee.

Hope Friday flies for us all so we can get to our weekend sooner! Love a short week that gets me to my weekend faster!
