Kenny Lyons came to Husk Restaurant from Watermark Restaurant in Nashville where he previously served as the Beverage Director and Front of House Manager. It was at Watermark where Kenny learned firsthand the importance of cultivating strong relationships with guests, local purveyors, and distributors.
Lyons graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor in Business Administration, having double majored in finance and real estate. It was in Oxford, Miss. that Kenny entered into the hospitality industry, first at Bottletree Bakery as a server and then as a server and bar manager at L & Mâ€™s Kitchen and Salumeria.
Lyons considers himself lucky to have worked with inspiring chefs like Dan Latham in Oxford, Bob Waggoner and Louis Osteen at Watermark, and now Sean Brock at Husk Nashville. A Music City native, he has a thorough appreciation of the local burgeoning food scene and feels fortunate to be a part of the Husk team.
Lyons is currently pursuing advancement within the Court of Master Sommeliers. His passion for wine is contagious, and he volunteers his free time to help with the Nashville Wine Auction. When not on the floor at Husk Nashville, he enjoys being on the golf course, hunting, and watching whatever season of sports the Ole Miss Rebels happen to be playing.
