One night in Savannah...

foevp12 Dec 27, 2006 01:33 PM

We're in Savanah this coming Saturday night, and will be looking for the best great dinner experience- We've been to the Olde Pink House a couple of times - though not in some years - and remember it fondly. Still good? Any other choices? (also welcome are roadside lunch attractions a few hundred miles north and south of Savannah off of rt. 95.) Thanks. Happy new year to all.

      You're probably right. It is awfully cozy and sexy down there. I guess not quite as smoky as it used to be? But very old-school dark and cozy.

      Gottlieb's is closed.
      Bistro Savannah on a recent night had slipped. Off night?
      Alligator Soul is very worthy of consideration for 'best great dinner experience.' Very expensive, about the same as Elizabeth's.
      Cha Bella is another good high end choice.
      I agree with uptown jimmy regarding Pink House.

        I had a very nice meal at Belfort's at the city market a couple of years ago

          We've had three very nice meals at Sapphire Grill.

            I really like Olde Pink House....not only the food but the whole romantic package!

              Three friends and I enjoyed a magnificent meal at Olde Pink House last October. Elizabeth's on 37th was fantastic, too. don't forget to enjoy tea with the SCAD students at the Gryphon Tea Room. Savannah is a bevy of culture and grand dining from the shack on the corner to the Olde Pink House!

                Me and the missus ate at the Pink House a few years ago and were unimpressed, FWIW. Nice place, but the food was just not worth the pirces and the high-falutin' atmosphere.

                The bar downstairs is really cool, though.

                Elizabeth on 37th (912 236 5547 is very nice and probably the best "fine dining" restaurant in the city. Bistro Savannah is nice (912 233 6266) and I like Gottlieb's (912 234 7447). Bon Appetit.
