Prohibition

Prohibition Bar

Prohibition originally started out in Charleston and has now opened a Savannah branch. The theme is a 1920s speakeasy-style restaurant and bar. It’s full of dark corners and private booths for hushed conversations.

Strong cocktails!

Their cocktail list is creative and the cocktails are STRONG. The Irish roots of the owners show themselves in the cocktail menu with cocktails such as the Tipperary and Ballysillian containing Teeling Irish Whiskey .

Cheese tart!

The food menu is full of Southern classics with a twist. I adored the Tomato and Cheddar Tart for starters. The Street Corn was also absolutely incredible. No corn will ever measure up to it!

There were no veggie mains/entrees on the menu but our server, Nalani, made sure I was well taken care of.

A meal at Prohibition, Savannah certainly feels like you’re treating yourself and would be perfect for a date or a girl’s night out.

Cha Bella

Who doesn’t love cheese and charcuterie?!

This farm to table restaurant sources pretty much all of their ingredients from local farmers and fishermen within a day’s drive. They don’t even own a freezer! Because of the local ingredients, the menu changes often.

The atmosphere in Cha Bella is intimate, cosy and comfortable. They have a beautiful outdoor patio for relaxed dining too.

DELICIOUS mains at Cha Bella.

To start we tried the cheese and the charcuterie boards and it was plenty between three of us. For mains/entrees I had the vegetarian mushroom and ricotta ravioli which was the perfect portion size and incredibly tasty.

The beetroot carpaccio also received high praise from my dining party. We, of course, had to try dessert (Crème brûlée and chocolate cake), despite having barely any room left in our stomachs. Desserts change depending on the day and your server will let you know what’s available.

Leopold’s Ice Cream

Leopold’s Ice Cream Parlour with only a small queue.

Leopold’s is an institution in Savannah – home of the Tutti Frutti flavour of ice cream and instantly recognisable by the long line of people, waiting for their sugar fix, that often spans around the block.

Meeting the main man, Stratton Leopold.

We had the pleasure of meeting Stratton Leopold himself, who took over the family business from his father. But Stratton is not only an ice cream genius, he’s also a Hollywood producer. You can see photos of him with famous friends lining the halls of Leopold’s.

My perfect cone.

You can feel the passion Stratton has for his family business. He eats ice cream every day, sometimes three times a day, and looks well for it!

We tried tonnes of flavours but our favourites were Rum Bisque, Savannah Socialite, Vanilla and Mocha Chocolate Chip. They also have seasonal flavours that change every month, so you could never get bored!

2019 is Leopold’s 100 year anniversary so it’s a great time to visit this old world ice cream parlour. Leopold’s is by fav one of the best places to eat in Savannah if it’s a sweet treat you’re after.

Fox & Fig

The insane Beyond Burger at Fox and Fig.

If you’re vegan, vegetarian or just looking for something a bit healthier then Fox & Fig is the place for you. It’s bright, beautifully designed and has a menu full of fresh, tasty treats.

This vegan restaurant has a sort of all day brunch vibe full of insta-worthy dishes. From Beyond Burgers (vegan burgers that 100% taste and feel like real burgers) to avocado toast, there’s something for everyone.

Alcohol + Smoothie = delicious!

I LOVED their Boozy Superfood Smoothie. I got a couple of my 5 a day while also involving alcohol, win-win! They also offer vegan milkshakes made with vegan coconut ice cream from Leopold’s. Gosh, I’m getting hungry just thinking of it now.

Churchill’s Pub

COCKTAILS!

This British-themed pub in the Historic Downtown of Savannah has a menu to die for. It was definitely one of my favourite dinners I had during my time in Savannah.

The majority of the menu are modern or Southern twists on British classics. We decided to make a meal out of various starters, sides and specials to get a proper taste for the menu.

Scotch egg, home fries, pimento croquettes and Welsh rarebit.

The Scotch Egg was extremely well received by my travel companion, Jen. My personal favourites were the Bhaji Rings and the pimento cheese croquettes.

We also tried some of the cocktails such as the River Street Punch and Georgia Peach Sangria. If you’re not one for cocktails they have plenty of local beers on tap from Georgia such as Savannah River IPA.

MY FAVS, the bhajis.

We were delighted to meet Gareth, the wonderful Englishman in charge at Churchill’s Pub and he talked us through the evolution of the menu. Apparently it took a little while for the locals to get on board with the concept of updated British pub food, but now they love it. And so will you!

We stopped into Goose Feathers on a whim because we hadn’t had breakfast. It ended up being an incredible decision. It’s one of those casual, order at the counter kind of places with friendly staff and delicious food.

I had the black bean burrito and it definitely hit the spot. The menu has pretty much everything you could ever want; oatmeal, grits, pancakes, bagels and more. It’s the perfect spot for breakfast, brunch or lunch – cheap, cheerful and in a great location.

Try their signature Waddle Pop cocktail featuring a duck-shaped popsicle and champagne. All of their cocktails can be made non-alcoholic so that the kiddies can have a cute ducky cocktails too. Or perhaps you’d prefer a green tea milkshake in a mason jar? You won’t be short of choices.
