By Ladan Nikravan Hayes September 11, 2018

The South is famed for its food, but some cities stand out as culinary destinations even among the red-hot competition. Greenville, South Carolina’s burgeoning dining scene continues to draw travelers from all over and national accolades for its fare. (Fitting, since Greenville is home to Michelin’s North American headquarters.) In fact, Zagat has named Greenville the “#1 Under-the-Radar Southern Food Destination,” Southern Living “One of the South’s Tastiest Towns” and Esquire “The Next Big Food City of the South.” The menus and festivities are ever-changing, but this fall is a great time to visit.
