Husk is the one Nashville restaurant you should make a reservation at before you even finish reading this, both because it’s great and because it books up way in advance. Located in an old Victorian mansion in Rutledge Hill, this very 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. If you don’t make a reservation, you can try winging it and head to the downstairs bar instead, which serves a huge selection of rare whiskies and the full restaurant menu.
