2013 BEST Southern Restaurant

Highland Kitchen

This Somerville hangout’s cuisine is probably better described as “global southern” than “down-home.” The menu, after all, features coconut-curried goat stew and pork-belly tacos alongside classic grilled pork short ribs and grits, catfish po’ boys, and fully loaded jambalaya with cornbread. One bite of the Buffalo fried Brussels sprouts, though, and you’ll be more than willing to cast semantics aside.
