Southern cuisine elevated to delicious new level

The Vue on 30A, Santa Rosa Beach: The Vue on 30A recently got the attention of Food Traveler magazine and is on anyone who is anyone’s list of fine seafood restaurants to sink their teeth into; as a bonus, in addition to expertly prepared cuisine, the restaurant also features incredible views. And, if you’re visiting the beach this spring, they just rolled out a fabulous line of new craft cocktails (pictured at left) to go with that killer view. Tasty.

All of these restaurants offer an elevated look at the kind of food the Southeast is known for. Many of them are classic restaurants with names recognizable around the world (and if they’re not, one day, they will be). So, while there are definitely other incredible places to eat—places that offer semi-casual, casual, and fine dining menus like these places, if you’re traveling to down South, these are some places to put on your radar, or better yet, get on Open Table and book a reservation before it’s too late.
