Eating My Way Through Savannah

Whenever I travel, finding good eats is always top of the list. This is why Savannah is one of my favorite cities to visit. Let's dig right into my most recent visit there when I ate my way through the city. It can be a curse to like both salty and sweet; my waistline will attest to that. The Florence is on Victory Drive just on the border of the historic district. I've tried it twice and had decent meals, but this is not a place that I put on my "must" list whenever I venture into town. Still, we had a great time (it's all about the company you keep!) and enjoyed our beverages and food. Especially the beverages. Another Pimm's Cup, please!

Leopold's Ice Cream is not only on my "must" list, but it's a an every day occurrence. I just cannot get enough of their ice cream. Somebody start an intervention.

Grant and I had to explain to 20-something Shawn what a phone booth was.

When your trainer eats ice cream, you take photos. They come in handy later.

The Gryphon Tea Room is on my once every 3 or 5 years or so list. It's more about experiencing the historic interior than anything else.

Full of rich details, it still has many traces of its former glory as a pharmacy.

The face Grant is making is not because of the food; it's because we were seated near the bathroom. Yes, we got a discount on our bill.

The Grey never disappoints.

Although it is probably the most hip and trendy place in town, the food is not pretentious. Just creative and tasty. I want more of these red pea pancakes.

My mouth is watering. I can't wait to go back.

We were all happy campers that night. Love this place.

What? Ice cream at Leopold's after having dessert at The Grey? Who only live once. I wanted my Tutti Frutti ice cream, and I'm sure all the walking I did made everything kosher.

Dinner at The Pink House is also part of my ritual.

No complaints from my travel companions on this one, either. It was a great southern meal.

And yes, I get the same thing every time. I don't care if that's boring; why should you? The Fried Pork Chop is just crazy good.

Grant was digging the basement tour, where the Pink House is supposedly haunted.

After dinner it was back to the Grey for a beverage and to visit Scotty, the best bartender/manager.

And then...yup, you guessed it. Leopold's.

Our last meal together in Savannah was at Huey's on the River for brunch. This one made my once every 100 years or so list.

Still hungry? There's more Savannah goodness at my main website.

If life is measured by experiences and not time, you've lived a thousand years' worth. That sounds like a great trip.
