Try Sugar Daddy’s yet? We did..

The latest food and wine bar in savannah, Sugar Daddy’s, at 109 Jefferson, may well turn out to be the latest downtown in-spot. We had our first try with the salmon salad, fresh greens, sliced almonds, ruby red grapefruit, red onions, and goat cheese tossed with citrus vinaigrette and topped with broiled  wild salmon. It was downright delish! Then we shared a slow roasted chicken Panini, and the duck confit Panini. The chicken Panini, slow roasted, pulled chicken with sun-dried tomatoes, roasted tricolor peppers and Parmesan, with apple smoked bacon pecan-pesto spread provided a delightful array of flavors from spicy sweet to musky and smokey. The duck confit was slow roasted as well, marinated with vine ripened tomatoes, sliced asparagus and finished with a shallot Bing cherry goat cheese spread on Panini. This one came with a with a small salad of the same delicious greens as in the salmon salad. Three plates ranging in price from $6-$9 proved to be an ample dinner for two.  The location is quite convenient  on a street less traveled.  This place strikes me as being a real winner.

Best Fish Dish in Town

Fish just doesn’t get any better than tilapia or flounder or the other freshest catch of the day as served in Papillote’s “en papillote.”  Served with one kind of Pasta or another, such as Greek orzo, plus straight from the garden-tasting veggies (recently tomato, fennel, and orange segments) this luxurious-flavored  wonder is not steamed in parchment per tradition, but in foil, safer and easier and every bit as luscious! “en papillote” is probably the deepest and richest flavored of all fish dishes, and for the health conscious, very low in fat and calories; super high in nutrients!  These Friday Specialties are available for about $11.99.
