Starland District: Savannah’s Hottest Foodie Neighborhood Right Now

The Starland District, defined as the stretch between Forsyth Park and Victory Drive, has long been beloved by in-the-know SCAD students and Savannah residents. It’s artsy, funky, walkable, and displays spectacular Victorian architecture. Restaurants in this district often started out as residential homes that have been converted into cozy hotspots, and First Fridays in Starland fill the streets with vendors and musicians with a block party vibe. The most exciting part of the Starland District to us, of course, is the food. Within a one square mile, 10 delicious restaurants make Starland the off-the-beaten-path place to get your grub on in Savannah.

2017 Foodie Trends To Watch for in Savannah (and beyond!)

While Savannah is never in danger of being without our BBQ, biscuits or fried chicken, we also have a whole heap of innovative chefs that may dip their toes into food trends that pop up in 2017. We’ve rounded up five foodie trends that have caught our eye and we’ve got our fingers crossed that we’ll get to try some of these in Savannah (here’s looking at you, Savannah chefs!). Nordic-inspired dishes Our family traces its heritage to Scotland, so when the chef of a Michelin-starred restaurant in Edinburgh says he’s looking forward to incorporating Nordic cooking techniques into his menus and being influenced by traditional Scandinavian flavors, we pay attention. So, perhaps we’ll see preserved produces, fermented meats and sausages, smørrebrød (an open-faced fish sandwich), experimental ingredients (branch, anyone?), foraged food, and smoked foods. Alligator Soul has served smoked bone marrow in the past, and…

7 Cozy Savannah Spots to Relax at This Season

Although Savannah doesn’t necessarily bring to mind a winter wonderland, we still enjoy evening temperatures during the winter seasons that will make you want to snuggle up to your sweetie or catch up with family and friends in a cozy setting. For those occasions, we’ve rounded up seven of our favorite cozy spots, ranging from dive bar to fine dining. All are appropriate for just drinks, and all but Abe’s have great food as well. Have a jolly good time! Alligator Soul Many Savannahians were worried that this fine dining staple for the last 14 years wouldn’t reopen after a flood in May. Thankfully, they are again serving up fresh seafood, locally-sourced produce, and exotic specialties like elk, antelope or wild boar. All of this happens in a cellar, with dark woods, stone floors, and exposed beams that make for…

Fall or Winter Getaway to Savannah

Savannah is a popular destination year-round in part thanks to our mild fall and winter temperatures in Savannah averaging highs of 78 to 60 degrees between October and January with lows around 56 to 40 degrees.

British Influence on Savannah: 5 Old World Spots

Many people have commented on Savannah’s European feel, which isn’t surprising considering its retained the Old World charm General Oglethorpe imported from England. Our fair city’s walkability, antiquity and slower pace help keep Oglethorpe’s vision for Savannah intact–and help it continually land on Travel+Leisure’s “World’s Best Cities” list. During our food tours, we share many tidbits about Savannah’s history and British influence, and we also recommend these five stops to experience Britain in Savannah. #1: Oglethorpe Monument, Chippewa Square Savannah owes so much of its historic charm to General Oglethorpe, who was born in England and came to establish the colony of Georgia. This happened in a large part to provide protection for Carolina from Florida, which was controlled by Spain at the time. Although he left Georgia after only 10 years to return home, he laid the groundwork for the historic city we call home today….

Spend the Day on Tybee Island, Savannah’s Beach

Tybee Island is a must-see if you are visiting Savannah. It’s just a short drive outside of the city, and it’s a great destination with lots of activities. It’s a perfect spot to visit on your own or with your friends and family. Kids especially love the long stretches of beachfront where they can play all day. There are many exciting things to do. Summer temperatures come early to Savannah and Tybee Island, with beach lovers often enjoying the sun, sand and water as early as March. Savannah’s beach is a throwback to beach towns of the past, with very few hotels or high-rises to block the ocean views. Chain restaurants do not dot our beach; instead, many of the local joints have been operating for decades in true Slo-vannah fashion. There’s not a lot of hustle and bustle, and…

New Division: Corporate, Weddings, Large Group Events, and Conferences in Savannah

We are extremely excited to announce our new division: Micro Food Fest! These events are held in the evening and are ideal for organizations attending conferences in Savannah, corporate events, weddings, and large groups of 125+ people who want to sample cuisine from 10+ top Savannah restaurants and specialty food shops, all in one location. The idea for these events was sparked by requests from visitors, Savannah event planners, and our partner restaurants for evening Savannah Taste Experiences. We knew our daytime food tour model wouldn’t be ideal because the restaurants are too busy, foot traffic picks up, and not all the stories and landmarks we like to discuss along the way are easily visible at night.

5 Top Spots for Breakfast in Savannah, GA

Since our delicious food tours go to lunch, dinner and dessert spots, we don’t get to talk about breakfast too much—which is a shame because we are breakfast and coffee fanatics! We’ve got a mix of new, old, fast and Slo-vannah breakfast places so you can pick which suits your mood and schedule. THE COLLINS QUARTER This new gorgeous spot on the corner of bustling Bull and Oglethorpe has made quite a splash since opening this year, especially since Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, Sofia Vergara, and Joe Manganiello were spotted sharing some laughs through the window. Definitely a great place to go if you want to ease into your day, but the counter service can get you out the door quickly, too.

This weekend Savannah hosted thousands of visitors for it’s annual Craft Brew Fest. Although the dozens of craft breweries and ale aficionados have packed up their convention gear and headed back to their respective homes, Savannah’s craft brew scene doesn’t just crawl into a hole and hide until next year. Savannah, sometimes called the “Toast-Us City” as a play on its long-held distinction as the Hostess City, continues to build momentum in the craft beer industry with a new production brewery opening in 2014 (Service Brewery) and two more slated to debut in late 2014. Here’s how to soak in all the suds Savannah has to offer in one weekend while keeping your wits about you. Thankfully, Savannah’s to-go cup freedom means you’ll never have to chug a brew before heading to the next establishment, so you can savor every last drop…
