Memphis and Nashville

The food is rich and heavy. Okay, I did order chicken livers on Sally Lunn bread and a pork duo; I could have ordered salad and fish. But I had expected that in updating Southern cuisine with good ingredients and cheffy touches--all absolutely present here--Husk might also have slightly lightened it.
The chicken livers had "Nashville hot" levels of fire. Pork shoulder, fine; the belly was very much just the fat layer; cheffy touch, a lovely peanut cream tying it to peanut "gravel" on the sweet potato.
Only because I could not stand up did I eat the apple, smoked cheddar biscuit and cider ice cream, which was quite good.
A Slovenian orange wine was terrific with the livers until the hot sauce paralyzed my palate.
$120-ish, cheaper than New York for this level (overall, not just food).

Glad you had a better meal than I did. Hope you availed yourself of the parkerhouse rolls too ;-)

Someone just invited me to take her to a collaborative dinner Sean Brock is participating in in New York in July (I think on the 17th).
I wish I could remember the details (like where).

sooo. I can buy 7 tix for 150 a pop or I can buy a season ticket for 1500? Is that right?
