This past week we celebrated the birth of Kim, glorious day! We went out to dinner to Savannah's downtown for most of us it was the first time that we had been there. This restaurant is the spin off of a beloved favorite off of Park Street called Safron's which was never a let down, so surely Savannah's would be great as well. It turns out that the high class southern food mofit that they are attempting fell fairly short of the high expectations that many of us had.
The appetizers were a bit unclear. We ordered stuffed mushrooms and what we got was one actual mushroom. For an appetizer, not ideal. We did enjoy the sweet potato chips with blue cheese dressing. Oh, and the juleps. This place is great for a drink. The juleps are southern, strong and the tastiest thing you will ever have, this very well may have been worth checking out the place.
Once our entrees arrived all of us were a bit "eh" about them. Rod got pork chops that were a bit dry. My chicken with stuffed goat cheese was way too dry, though the collard greens were soaked in delicious butter and herbs. Eliot's seafood jambalaya had rubbery scallops and mushy rice. The cost of the main meals in relation to the satisfaction of the food itself was a bit disappointing.
It would be fair to say that they were attentive and fantastic with Kim's surprise ice cream cake. They brought it out with candles and sang along with us, provided small plates and forks. The evening over all was a delight because we were hanging with our peeps which is always cool.
