By Nancy Vallarella, What’s Cookin’? -Smithtown

Husk & Vine is the newest eatery to sprout up in St. James.  The former home to Espana Tapas & Wine, Husk & Vine’s concept is led by the passion of Chef Nicholas Trovato.  A weekly updated menu of craft cocktails, wines, and small sharable plates made with the “freshest quality ingredients available” is planned to be served.

Before opening, Husk & Vine made the decision to participate in Smithtown’s Children Foundation’s 2018 Community Table Grand Tasting fundraiser held at Flowerfield Celebration on Tuesday, November 13th.   Chef Trovato reveals, “We may very well be opening the day of the SCF Community Table event!”

Husk & Vine is committed to giving back to the community. One of the restaurant’s weekly traditions is a Good Karma Brunch on Sundays. The bistro will be donating 10% of the day’s food sales monthly to rotating local charities.

Husk & Vine’s “weekly traditions” are outlined on their website and range from various food and drinkspecials to live music. Comedy nights, cigar dinners, ladies’ night, couple dinners, and Chef’s tastings are also in the works.
