Alabama knows how to do French food the right way—and no, we’re not just talking French fries, either. These four incredible French restaurants are serving up out-of-this-world meals, and you’ll be glad to pay them a visit!

The menu was crafted as a nod to the Nice region of France, so you can experience what the locals there indulge in every day.
