Savannah Restaurant Week Roundup

 

We’re fortunate to be working and living in city, whose foodie scene continues to grow, inspire and help Savannah be seen as more than a great place to sink your teeth into some fried chicken. New restaurants like Hugh Acheson’s The Florence and James Beard semifinalist The Grey have helped shine the spotlight a little brighter onto an already amazing culinary scene in Historic Savannah, GA.

That’s why Savannah Restaurant Week is one of our favorite events in Savannah, where local chefs let their foodie flags fly. Savannah Restaurant Week is a celebration of creativity, heritage and deliciousness that runs from July 29th-August 7th. Participating restaurants offer up an incredible 3-course, prix fixe dinner that will only set you back $30 per person—not including tax or gratuity.

This year we have 4 partner stops from our food tours taking part in this year’s celebration. Below you will find all the details you need to start planning your strategy for tackling one of Savannah’s tastiest festivals.
