Site Scoop: Southern Living

When people ask which cities they should visit for an amazing meal, the answers may seem obvious at first: New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco...glitzy, glamorous metropolises filled to the brim with high-profile chefs and renowned restaurants. However, this short list of hotspots only makes up a small slice of what the American culinary scene has to offer. The south, in particular, is experiencing a boom in food culture. As a Brooklyn girl who is soon heading below the Mason-Dixon line for graduate school, I am eternally grateful to Southern Living magazine for the "South's Tastiest Town" awards, a homage to ten drool-worthy dining destinations including Lafayette, Louisiana, Decatur, Georgia, and Raleigh, North Carolina. This list is enough to make anyone want to embark on a road trip and get a taste of what these Southern chefs are cooking, whether it's chic Indian cuisine in Houston, pan-fried Virginia trout in Charlottesville, or twelve-layer coconut cake in Charleston. What are you waiting for? Book a trip to one of these tasty towns ASAP!
