Husk is the Nashville spot you should make a reservation at before you even finish reading this because it’s both great and books up way in advance. Located in an old Victorian mansion in Rutledge Hill, this super popular spot serves refined Southern food and an all-time great burger. The menu is updated twice daily for lunch and dinner and reflects heavily what’s available from the on-site garden. And if you weren’t able to get a reservation, you can try winging it and head to the downstairs bar instead, which serves a huge selection of rare whiskeys and the full restaurant menu.
