A Screamin’ Great Pizza!

Just had a pizza from Screamin’Mimi’s at 513 E. Oglethorpe. Definitely the best mushroom and green pepper (my favorite) pizza I’ve ever eaten. The peppers are in big, plump chunks, plenty of fresh mushrooms atop an absolutely delicious crust! And they have a couple of tables outdoors, which means, doggie delight!

Harris Baking Co.

A truly happening little place is Harris Baking Co. from Savannah’s famous Frank Harris restauranteur family. It’s located on Drayton @ Liberty Street (ground level of the vintage Drayton Towers Apartments, now being renovated for retail and elegant condominiums.) From first impressions, I’d say that “poud to showcase Savannah,” “ultra fresh” and “imaginative” are the bywords, that must also include consistent, friendly, nostalgic and affordable. Think “Regency Salad,” revived from the Downtowner Restaurant, “Chocolate Chewies” of Gottlieb’s and the brownie merigue category of indulgences, savory tarts and fresh soups. A definite southern comfort foods’ “good feeling” place. Today they offered a batch of “gourmet dog snacks” to test the appeal. I forget to get a few for Bob Boxer. I’ll be back!

Thanks for your tidbit Sandy…we’ll have to check that out…keep them coming!
