8 of the South’s Best Foodie Cities



Savannah, Georgia
Nearby Charleston gets a lot of foodie cred (as it should), but Savannah isn’t just for architecture, literary and garden buffs anymore. The city’s dining scene has expanded in recent years with additions like Leoci’s Trattoria and Daniel Reed’s group offering parkside dining at The Public Kitchen & Bar and recently reopened Soho South Cafe. Historic favorite The Olde Pink House, located in Savannah’s only 19th century mansion, shouldn’t be overlooked. Their She Crab Soup is some of the best, and fried green tomato, shrimp and grits and “Southern Sushi” appetizers are a great way to get a taste of Savannah. Other must-tastes include brew from Moon River, ice cream at institution Leopold’s and all flavors of benne wafers at Byrd Cookie Co.
