Raleigh: One of the South's Tastiest Towns?

The voters speak, and let's hope they eat: Raleigh got the 10th spot in Southern Living's poll to name the South's 10 Tastiest Towns.

Which town was No. 1? That would be the small but mighty Lafayette, La. Having been there twice, I can vouch for that one, cher. Several of the best meals of my life were spent in Lafayette one day. That's the kind of place Lafayette is: You eat lunch at 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, and 3, before taking a quick nap before dinner. Which happens at 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 . . .

So, the rest of the list, in order of votes received:
2. Louisville, Ky.
3. New Orleans.
4. Charleston. (C'mon, voters -- it deserves to be much higher on the list.)
5. Charlottesville, Va.
6. Houston.
7. Birmingham, Ala.
8. Decatur, Ga.
9. Baltimore.
10. Raleigh.

Raleigh, I mean no disrespect. I have many friends in Raleigh. But . . . Raleigh over Durham? Over Asheville? Over Carrboro?

Get the full story, including the criteria, here. Or look for the April issue, on newsstands March 23.
