On the Way to St. Patrick’s Day!

This time of year, thoughts turn to Corned Beef and Cabbage, Irish Stew, Fish and Chips, Bangers & Mash, and of course, Irish Whiskey and Irish Ale.  All of which seem to suggest Kevin Barry’s Irish Pub, Murphy’s Law Pub, and although it’s Scotch, not Irish, Molly MacPherson’s.  Kevin Barry’s tops my list with its corned beef & cabbage or its Irish Sampler which will give you portions of several Irish dishes…in abundance!  Fish and Chips are good at Murphy’s, and the Scottish eggs at McPherson’s are top notch. So get really Irish for the rest of the week and take them all in !  You’ll love it!

Today is the Day for Wet Willie’s newest location!

As you no doubt know, I almost never mention a chain Restaurant or bar. But Wet Willie’s was born n Savannah more than 20 years ago, created by a few savvy Savannahians, and remains headquartered here in its home town. So we’re proud of Wet Willie’s and happy for its success.                                    

Located at 232 West St. Julian St., on the corner of West St. Julian St.
and Jefferson St. in City Market, the new Wet Willie?s will feature two
levels of dining, indoor and outdoor seating, hand-painted murals by Bill
Wrigley and restored original interior décor features including period
stained glass windows and doors. The restaurant and bar will serve lunch and dinner daily.  All of the restaurant?s signature frozen drinks  including Call-A-Cab, Sex on the Beach and Attitude Improvement ? will be available to enjoy in-house or to-go.

The menu will feature old favorites like Chicken Wings, Savannah
Shrimp and Grits, Quesadillas and Black Angus Burgers as well as brand-new menu items like a Savannah Shrimp Boil, Apple Pecan Salad, a Turkey Club with bacon and fried green tomatoes.

More than satisfied with Satisfied

I almost missed out on going to Satisfied.  And that would have been a bad mistake on my part.  People had told me that it was a combination restaurant and sports bar. Since I am not a sports fan (unless the sport is horse  racing) my experience, sports bars has been very limited and a few times I visited one, the food was definitely not top drawer. But I was nearby when the companion who suggested we try the place and when he told me it was owned by the folks at created Sweet Potatoes and Cafe Toucon, I happily agreed.  
I ordered the Portobello mushroom available in their vegetable section. A large clump portobello came to my table graced with chevre cheese, red onion marmalade and a balsamic drizzle over wilted greens. The meaty flavor of the mushroom enhanced by the piquant red onion and balsamic over the green and made for a truly succulent and delicious dish. My companion ordered the Cuban sandwich, also a favorite of  mine. The Cuban roll was still with slices of savory roast pork am still pickle Swiss cheese and mustard with a side dish black bean salad.  The sandwich was as close as you can calm to the original home fashioned in Tampa, Florida. To say we were satisfied with Satisfied is an understatement. I will return again and very soon.

Blowin’ Smoke to soon blow over Habersham St.

For lots of us who live further east and south than the current MLK location,  the new venue is exciting news.  Not only am I personally happy about being closer to the best bbq in town, but I’m delighted to be close to their marvelous black bean chili!  They expect to open before the end of the month, depending on the speed of kitchen renovations and, of course, permits. Savannahbest awaits!
