Best Southern Food in the U.S.

Slide 17 of 31

Restaurant August, New Orleans

Restaurant August, located in a 19th-century building complete with mahogany paneling and crystal chandeliers, is the flagship restaurant of James Beard award-winning chef John Besh. The menu is influenced by Besh’s Louisiana upbringing, as well as his classical training in Europe. The $20 prix fixe lunch is a steal.
