Crawfish Shack (address and info)
Vietnamese chefs cranking out authentic Louisiana-style po-boys? One bite of perfectly seasoned seafood like shrimp and grouper, with its zingy, spicy sauce on a crisp, yet fluffy baguette, and you’ll believe it too.
49. Caramelized banana pancakes
Ria’s Bluebird (address and info)
Chef Ria Pell may be gone, but her accolade-heavy pancakes topped with the sweetest, most delicious caramelized bananas ever, live on... until you take down a whole plate of ‘em at breakfast.
50. Baked Rosemary Chicken
Chanterelles (address and info)
T.I. took MTV cameras into this “southern continental” meat-n-three cafeteria and told the world that the butterknife-tender yardbird they serve with several saucy sides (sauteed cabbage, creamed corn, green beans, etc.) is one of his favorite meals of all time. Jeezy has warned lame rappers that he’ll “eat yo’ lil’ ass up like a Chanterelle’s plate,” so make sure you aren’t smelling particularly herbal if you’re foolishly determined to try him instead of the food.
