Augusta is home to the Masters Tournament, perhaps the most-legendary tournament of the four major pro-golf championships, where international superstars compete for that coveted green jacket, and where spectators nosh on Southern pimento-cheese sandwiches. Beyond the links, Augusta is developing a reputation for its restaurant scene, blending contemporary Southern hospitality with a focus on local ingredients. From stellar small plates to low-country classics like shrimp and grits, these dishes are the culinary masters of the city — ideal to check out during Masters week and beyond.
