When we asked locals what their favourite restaurant was, Coquette –which means pretty in French– was the top answer. Their take on Southern cuisine is innovative and elegant. You might find a chicer and more delicate version of the usual fried chicken, fried oysters or veal sweetbread – although their menu changes weekly. Their set lunch menu on Fridays is possibly the best deal in town (3 course for $23), especially considering how delicious it is.
