Some of the country's leading publications are huge fans of the great chefs and restaurants of Charleston, so it's not surprising to see Husk and FIG getting some love from Forbes and GQ magazines.

A Forbes 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."
