The downtown Greenville restaurant expansion continues. A Charleston-based restaurant named Husk will be opening their 3rd location in the West End area of Downtown Greenville.
Husk Restaurant will open its third location (the second is in Nashville) at 722 S. Main St.
James Beard award-winning celebrity chef Sean Brock and David Howard, president of the Neighborhood Dining Group, which includes Husk, are bringing the ingredient-driven Southern cuisine restaurant to Greenville with plans to open this fall.
Brock and Howard said they were attracted to Greenville’s emerging culinary scene. “It’s not quite as mature as Charleston but it’s heading that way and we’d like to be part of that,” said Brock. Howard added that the foot traffic and business climate is “spectacular” and he has visited many times and finds the city “very unique.”
Brock will be responsible for the menu and creative, but a chef de cuisine will be hired for day-to-day operations. Husk is expected to employ approximately 60 people and be open for lunch and dinner.
It’s fantastic to see the West End area of downtown Greenville expand. Looking forward to their opening!
