According to Open Table’s new list of the 50 Best Southern Restaurants in America 2018, Alexandria’s RT’s Restaurant is one of the best. It was the only representative from the entire state of Virginia. The Mount Vernon Avenue classic has been offering authentic Creole and Cajun cuisine for more than 30 years.
The list includes restaurants from 14 states and Washington, D.C. but only 10 of those states are Southern.
The rankings are based on 12 million reviews on Open Table for over 27,000 restaurants in 50 states and DC.
If you’ve never tried RT’s, Alexandria Restaurant Week (August 17-26) is a great time to give it a go. They will be offering a $35 three-course dinner and $22 lunch.
