The anticipation had been building for months when restaurateurs and friends Reginald “Reggie” Washington and Duane Nutter opened Southern National in Mobile. Owning their own restaurant had been a longtime dream for both men, and it only takes a few bites of their “globally inspired Southern food” to realize it was worth the wait.

Southern National is fine dining in Mobile’s lively arts district. The creative dishes there feature locally sourced ingredients like Gulf-fresh seafood, regional delicacies from around the Southeast and inspiration from myriad cultures. Consider Kentuckyaki Braised Short Ribs with Brussels sprout kimchi and miso butternut squash puree. They pour inventive craft cocktails and wines from around the world. And it’s worth a trip. No matter where you are right now.

This is not the first time they’ve done destination dining.The two collaborated at One Flew South, an upscale restaurant in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, where they made Concourse E its own destination. Fans of One Flew South scheduled layovers at the airport to eat there. Others routinely arrived extra early so they could visit the restaurant before jetting off.
