Best Southern Food in the U.S.
The Catbird Seat, Nashville
One of the most sought-after reservations in the country is at this 32-seat gem in Nashville’s historic Patterson House. Diners sit at a U-shaped bar as chefs Erik Anderson and Josh Habiger (who’ve worked in some of the top kitchens in the world, including Noma, the Fat Duck and Alinea), prepare your meal—a multicourse prix fixe menu that changes weekly and is accompanied by Jane Lopes’s unique, small-batch beverages. thecatbirdseatrestaurant.com
