Lots of good food in Savannah.
Here we see Sweet Leaf Smokery, a terrific little place that doesn’t seem to get a lot of attention.
I had a great pulled pork sandwich which came with this coleslaw that had julienned apple in it. It was accompanied by some classic Southern sweet tea.
It’s pretty typical to find art on the walls in restaurants. SCAD is a huge presence in town. Lots of art students means lots of art.
Here’s a shot from J. Christopher’s, a breakfast/lunch place. It’s housed in a former garage. Eclectic art on the walls.
I also ate breakfast at Clary’s Cafe (est. 1903), which used to be a drugstore with a lunch counter: omelet with fried apples and cheddar cheese, pit ham and biscuit. (The place is mentioned in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.) I had drinks at the Mansion, which was a gorgeous hotel; the menu for the restaurant looked great. There was a great funky jazz band up in the bar.
The classic place where tourists eat is Paula Deen’s place The Lady & Sons. Good Southern food; always a long wait. The classic place where locals eat is Johnny Harris, a total throwback to a by-gone era.
