Small Plates at Blue Turtle Bistro

Personally, I think the small plate  trend is the best thing to hit the restaurant scene in many a year! For those of us who love good eats, but don’t have huge appetites, these little mini meals are heaven sent!  Blue Turtle Bistro is now serving these delights every day starting at 4 pm.  Included in their repetoire are:  Tacos, each served in a corn tortilla with cabbage, cilantro lime cream and pico de gallo with your choice of : blackened fish, fried fish, smoked pork, chicken, or bean ;  Smoked Pork and Kimchi Spring Roll with sweet chili sauce;   Corn Dog Lollipops, house-made Andouille sausage dipped in cornmeal served with sweet chili mustard;  shrimp Quesadilla with cheddar and jack cheeses served with pico de gallo and sour cream Ceviche of th Day.  So after work, just head to the Bistro and have a great eatin’ experience. 
Happy hour drink specials too.!

Alligator Soul Goes Totally Organic

More than nine years ago, I was sitting at the bar, chatting with the late Hilary Craig, founding chef and with his wife, Maureen, owner of Alligator Soul. I thought this restaurant was fabulous and just what Savannah needed, and told him so. He told me his plans for the future. He was already a big advocate of Farm to Table, but it was difficult, then, to find much in the way of locally produced foods. “But where it’s available,” he said, “i always prefer to buy locally.: He went on to say that he hoped one day that most of his ingredients would be organic. “They taste better, they’re healthier, and they are better for the environment. Today, Hilary must be smiling down at the place he built and the chef, Chris DeLillo who he hand-picked and trained to be his successor. For Chef Chris has now fulfilled that dream of Hilary’s: the restaurant has become completely organic, much of the produce, meats, fish and dairy products are locally produced. And very soon, says Maureen Craig, who now co-owns the  place with Chris DiNello, “even our wines and liquors will be organic.”
