Best Southern Food in the U.S.
Restaurant Eugene, Atlanta
Atlanta chef Linton Hopkins (F&W Best New Chef 2009) and his team make everything from scratch with locally sourced ingredients, right down to the hot pepper sauce and mustard. The owners are so dedicated to supporting regional farms that they founded the Peachtree Road Farmers’ Market, just a few blocks from the restaurant. Restaurant Eugene’s menu is divided into fish, meat and game, and vegetables, with exceptional choices in each (moulard duck with spoonbread puree and foie gras butter, Georgia mountain trout, sweetbreads with creamed kale and pickled onions). restauranteugene.com
