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. The Staples These restaurants have stood the test of time and helped keep this neighborhood afloat through ups and downs. Elizabeth on 37th (1981) Elizabeth on 37th has been serving some of the best fine dining in Savannah for…

Book Release Plus 5th Year Anniversary

Co-authors, brothers, and Savannah Taste Experience owners celebrate their 5-year business anniversary and a book deal with Arcadia Publishing in April Sometimes, the stars align just right and April is such an occasion for brothers Stu and Donald Card. The Cards took a big risk five years ago, leaving big jobs in big cities to start one food tour route in Savannah. Now, Savannah Taste Experience has grown into a bustling business, with two 5-star reviewed routes running seven days a week, with up to seven tour slots on weekend days. The icing on their anniversary cake is their first book release on April 12: Savannah Food: A Delicious History. A big chunk of 2016 was dedicated to writing the book after the brothers were approached by Arcadia Publishing, which is the largest publisher of local history books and regional content guides in America. They’ll…

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…
