Taste of Savannah

Save

For adventurous seekers of Roadfood, a brief visit to Savannah can be frustrating. There are too many good eateries to savor them all. Of course, one wants great seafood, of which there is plenty at Pearl’s Saltwater Grill and Driftaway Cafe. For soul food, consider BBQ ribs at Randy’s and breakfast at Narobia’s Grits & Gravy. More breakfast essentials include bacon at Two Cracked Eggs, hoppel poppel at Clary’s Cafe, and buttermilk biscuits at Back In the Day Bakery. How about a cutting-edge New American lunch counter (Grey’s Market)? Sweet tooths will find ecstasy in the South’s most famous cookies at Byrd’s, artisan ice pops at Savannah Square Pops, and sundaes at century-old Leopold’s ice cream parlor. No visit is complete without a boarding-house meal at legendary Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room — true Americana. But, should your appetite yearn for a taste of Britain — such as steak & kidney pie, Victoria sponge, or Cornish pasty — Pie Society fills the bill.
