5 new food spots in the South to take your Northerner friends to
What better way to settle this North versus South dispute once and for all than through food?
Jul 20, 2018
People from the North often complain about how there are not enough spots to hang out in or eat at in the South—or at least, someplace that’s worth the trip. Whether that’s out of lack of willingness or a proven fact is debatable.
If you’re from the South, on the other hand, you know of course this is not true. So as a well-meaning Southerner, it is your responsibility to reintroduce your Northerner folks to the Big Sur.
To help you get started on your quest to convince your friends that the South is indeed better than the North, here are some food places you could invite them to. Because really, there’s no disagreement good food cannot resolve.
