Savannah is all about the food. Seriously. Even on a business trip. Who cares what I DID, let me tell you what I ATE.
Wednesday night: Parmesan crusted fresh snapper with whipped sweet potatoes and green beans. And 2 glasses of Malbec.
Thursday lunch: Catered at the Mulberry Inn, a three course meal of tomato bisque soup, chilled beef tenderloin with apple, celery, and walnut salad on the side, and pecan pie drizzled with chocolate.
Thursday dinner: Alligator Soul restaurant - located beneath a shop on a side street, the only indication anything is down there is the alligator-adorned awning marking the stairway entrance. Once below ground, the most charming, and delicious food ever. I had a seasoned pork chop stuffed with an andouille sausage mixture, apple and cinnamon struedel, and roasted veggies.
Friday lunch: The Distillery, a new brew pub in town, with a to-die-for roasted turkey sandwich and sweet potato fries. Oh, and fried pickles.
Friday afternoon: A free hour along River Street led me to Savannah Candy Kitchen, where I bought goodies to send home. And sampled fresh caramel popcorn, pralines, and fudge. Hope the harvest crew enjoys this! Yahoo!
