Best Southern Food in the U.S.

Slide 20 of 31

Herbsaint, New Orleans

A modern bistro on historic St. Charles Avenue, Herbsaint is consistently at the top of the Crescent City’s list of great restaurants. Celebrated chef Donald Link is reinventing the wheel with innovative takes on Southern fare—European small plates, classic gumbos and nouvelle cuisine artfully share the menu. Try the duck confit with dirty rice or stewed lamb neck with saffron fideo. The mustard-greens salad with buttermilk dressing is irresistible and the restaurant is almost 100 percent self-sufficient, even raising its own animals.
