A laid-back Miami tasting menu; modern Middle Eastern in Houston; and twice-fried chicken in Oklahoma City

6 newly opened restaurants across the South in May/June

So far this summer, there’s new Israeli food in Houston; twice-fried chicken in Oklahoma City and Latin flavors in Atlanta.

These are among the new concepts to open across the South in May and June.

One Flew South, the acclaimed favorite inside Atlanta’s Hartsfield–Jackson airport, has expanded to a new space in the city’s Old Fourth Ward, while Spanish-Latin restaurant Casa Robles has opened its doors in Roswell, an Atlanta suburb.

Lion & the Rambler is an approachable tasting menu concept in Coral Gables, Fla., just outside of Miami. And Birdie’s has brought fried chicken, southern sides and craft drinks to Oklahoma City.

In Texas, Hamsa is serving Middle Eastern and Israeli dishes in Houston, and Blue Lacy is the all-day diner serving nostalgic hits in Austin’s new Origin hotel.
