Our food scene is undeniably Southern, but not in the way Northerners might imagine. The chefs at places such as Restaurant Eugene
, Empire State South
, and Miller Union
proudly claim the South as inspiration, but the creativity and nuance shown with Southern ingredients is mind-blowing. We love our meat-and-threes, too — it's the confluence of those two types of cooking that makes us one of the best places to eat in the country.
