BEST NEW RESTAURANT (OPENED IN LAST 12 MONTHS): New South Kitchen & Bar
Eating locally is the sea change of American gastronomy, and Southern cuisine, whether new or old, has become trendy. Homegrown chef Chris Edwards and wife Sue have reinvented themselves in their New South Kitchen and returned to their Piedmont culinary roots. Here, you can enjoy Edwards twist on old favorites, from a playful Redneck Cheese Plate (pimento) to pork tenderloin awash in bourbon sauce.
