The South's Tastiest Towns
In our second-annual Tastiest Towns contest, we picked 10 cities that have us ready to pack our forks and go. You voted—and it was an all-out food fight.
A scrappy scene of artisans devoted to coffee beans, brews, and the craft of humble foods.
A bountiful crossroads of 'cue, crops and rising culinary stars.
Intrepid casual fare from a tight-knit, indie-chef community.
Tradtion infused with global punch thanks to heritage-minded chefs.
Where smoke and swagger meet urban-ethnic style with a twang.
Hyper-attention to local sourcing and indigenous heirloom ingredients.
Internationally inpired food with a locally owned, Main Street sensibility.
Refined fare without pretense, in a town where bourbon is king.
A culinary Mrs. Robinson (mature, refined, sexier than ever) with a Southern accent.
A masterful, provocative gumbo of oysters and innovators.
