Yesterday was my 25th birthday! Adam and I had a low key dinner together at Husk in downtown Savannah. Husk just recently opened their new location here, and this was our first visit. I’ll write more about my birthday (and my quarter life crisis, tbh) in a future post, but for now I wanted to recap our dinner at Husk and share my thoughts on the new hip place to grab a meal downtown.
If you are fortunate enough to get a table at Husk (we had to make our reservation weeks before!) be sure to order the shrimp and grits. I love shrimp and grits and order the dish regularly. Husk has the absolute best shrimp and grits I have ever tasted! Seriously, I’ll be dreaming about the dish until my next visit. I don’t have the culinary vocabulary to describe how delicious the food was, but WOW.
My other favorite aspect of dinner was the Citrus & Skins specialty cocktail. It is currently my favorite cocktail I’ve ever had, followed closely by the shrub at the Rabbit Hole in Sydney. I have to admit I actually didn’t care too much for my entree (I ordered the swordfish). There was nothing wrong with it, I just don’t care much for poached fish. I ended up trading with Adam and ate his steak, which was wonderful. On our next visit, I think I will actually order the shrimp and grits as my entree – it was that good!
Our waitress brought out two glasses of dessert champagne on the house for my birthday. She was so sweet! I will never turn down a glass of champagne (which does get me into trouble from time to time). We enjoyed our champagne over the Tennessee Chocolate Sundae because no birthday is complete without chocolate. It was unusual in the best way. Adam in particular loved the peanut butter flavor, but he loves all things peanut butter! The dessert was the perfect subtle blend of chocolate and peanut butter without tasting too rich or too sweet.
I highly recommend Husk for a special night out in downtown Savannah! It will definitely be our go-to restaurant for celebrations and occasions together.
