Donald Link’s top entry on our ranking, Peche demonstrates that the chef can glorify fish just as well as he does pork. Named one of Bon Appetit’s Top 50 New Restaurants in 2013 and the home of James Beard Award winner for Best Chef — South, Ryan Prewitt, the restaurant is centered around a coal-burning open hearth. The daily whole grilled fish — whatever it is — is always a smart choice, but the traditional classics, like smothered catfish, shrimp and corn bisque, and the seafood platter certainly don’t get overlooked.
