Some of the country’s leading publications are huge fans of the great chefs and restaurants of Charl​eston, so it’s not surprising to see Hu​sk and FI​G getting some love from For​bes and G​Q magazines.

A Forbe​s list names the Husk cheeseburger as one of the 10 Must-Eat Burgers for May, which is National Burger Month. Here’s what they had to say about it:

“Only available at lunch or from the bar at night, the bacon-infused cheeseburger from Chef Sean Brock’s Husk in Charleston is a must-try. Benton’s hickory smoked bacon and 100 percent chuck are combined to create two thin patties, which are then seared on a Keating griddle to develop a nice, outer crust. Shaved white onions are steamed on top of one patty and beneath two slices of American cheese, allowing the flavor to seep into the burger while retaining a little crunch. One more slice of cheese is added, along with bread-and-butter pickles and Brock’s special sauce that consists of every condiment you’d want on a burger — ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, pickles and jalapeños. It’s served on a toasted, house-made buttermilk and sesame seed bun that’s moist and soft, yet with a perfect crunch. Keeping with his farm-to-table philosophy, Brock tops the burger with local lettuce and tomatoes only when they’re in season.”

FIG made GQ’s 10 Best Whiskey Bars​ in America. “Four words: Make Your Own Manhattan. Between fourteen whiskeys, eight vermouths, and nine bitters, you've got 1,007 reasons to order another.”
