jackson, ms

These Jackson restaurants aren’t just doing seafood and Southern comfort dishes - you can find everything from sushi to Indian food to world-class burgers and even throw your vote in on the debate over who has the best coffee in town. Many of the best Jackson restaurants are located in the trendy/artsy area of town known as Fondren. I would like to thank Find It In Fondren for providing us with a personal tour of the area. (And also for letting us drag him along to not one but TWO lunches!) Their site is a great local resource- be sure to check it out when you’re planning your own visit!
