Upscale Italian in Fort Worth, whole fried snapper in Miami, a tasting room in Nashville and more

These are six newly opened restaurants across the south

Southern dining options continue to abound as compelling concepts stretching from Texas to South Florida opened their doors over the past month or so. The new options are a diverse bunch, ranging from upscale Italian to steaks, seafood and modern Israeli cuisine.

Chef Tim Love’s Fort Worth dominance is still going strong, as he has followed up a Tex-Mex opening earlier this year with Caterina’s, a white-tablecloth Italian restaurant with pasta, veal chops and a no-phones policy. A few hours north, Culprits is serving three meals a day in the Renaissance hotel with a menu of breakfast favorites, sushi and steaks. And over in Nashville, Sean Brock’s long-awaited June has finally opened, complete with a 20-course tasting menu.

Moving southeast, the Ashford is a friendly neighborhood spot located just outside Atlanta, with a menu focused on seasonal shared plates. And Miami just welcomed two new restaurants: The modern Israeli spot Neya and the much-anticipated waterfront behemoth, Bayshore Club. 

Take a deeper look at these six recently opened restaurants across the south.
