Southern living Magazine recently named New Orleans the Tastiest Town in the South. The Article will be published sometime next week. The article has New Orleans competing against; Miami, Memphis, Greenville, Louisville, and Others. This is the second consecutive year that New Orleans makes this list.

Not that this should really shock anyone, but Southern Living magazine finds New Orleans tasty. In its February issue, the Alabama-based glossy names the Crescent City one of the “Tastiest Towns in the South.” The edition hits newsstands next week.

Here’s what the magazine has to say about the issue:

"To celebrate the many flavors and rich, diverse stories behind today’s Southern cuisine, Southern Living editors convened in its Birmingham-based Test Kitchen to identify the most compelling food destinations across the region. From Asheville’s eclectic, beer-friendly fare to Memphis’ new riff on soul food, the Southern culinary landscape is evolving, yet staying true to its roots."
