Savannah's Best Restaurants, Bars And Foodie Travel Ideas

Savannahians readily admit that it's the verdant canopied squares and the elegant centuries-spanning architecture that draw visitors to Georgia's first city. But in recent years, the Hostess City of the South has sprouted up as a legitimate food destination—perhaps because there is still so much fertile ground to cultivate and so many salted seas to explore. Celebrity chefs and young upstarts have opened up shop not as tourist traps, but as neighborly gathering spots where locavores may sample clever cocktails and craft brews alongside seasonal fare that has made its way from field to fork. These "come-heres" have reinvigorated the "from-heres," creating a table setting that is as diverse as it is delicious—and welcoming to all. — Amy Paige Condon, Savannah Magazine
