Foxy Loxy Does It Right

The latest addition to the bountiful array of good eats available in the Thomas Square neighborhood is Foxy Loxy. It’s a café/art gallery in the old Pizza Rustica location on Bull St.  The folks at the recent monthly meeting of Green Drinks were treated to what several say was the best cocktail buffet they’ve ever had, and the group has, over the years, met at virtually every possible downtown area location. This time they were treated to a variety of nibbles, including slow roasted pulled pork with apple chutney, Chipotle-Pimento cheese pinwheels, tomatillo and orange salsa with chips, chocolate pepita shortbread, and a cheese and grape platter. Since then, I’ve heard raves about their coffees (all from PERC), their sandwiches, and especially their quiche of jeuvos rancheros.  The menu changes daily, but it tends to have a Mexic ana flavor, plus in-house made desserts that draw raves. The wine and craft beer list is impressive. Open Monday through Saturday, the gallery has a frequently changing array of  etchings, prints, lithos and woodcuts by local artists. More info: 401-0543.

Mac ‘n Cheese with a French Twist!

Mac ‘n Cheese is as American as you can get. But try it with a French twist. You’ll like it!  Chef Herve, at Papillote, does two versions of it. First, there’s his Mac and Cheese, Mediterranean style, fashioned with tiny pearl pasta and an array of fragrant herbs:  Spicily different and delicious.  Then, there is The Mac-Craw, using robust rigatoni, crawfish, aromatic herbs, three cheeses and mushrooms.  Served with arugula salad, this piquant dish is delectable. Both are offered frequently on the Daily Specials menu. Bon Appetite!

Greek Festival – again!

Yes, we know, here at Savannahbest.com, we’re pretty obsessive about all things Greek.   But after all, Greece is the site of the cradle of civilization, and civilization includes food, right?        This year’s festival proved to be very possibly, the best ever…… except for one little flaw.  For the second year in a row, there were no roasted Greek potatoes!  None!   All were replaced by rice pilaf….. delicious pilaf, to be sure, but nothing, NOTHING can beat those heavenly potatoes of yesteryear’s….   Please, folks, bring back the potatoes next yer!

A Terrific Burger at Sunnyside Up!

Two of our foodie friends had lunch recently at Sunnyside Up (800 DeRenne).  Now we know that Sunnyside Up has great breakfasts–super-fresh eggs, heavenly hash browns, wonderful omelets.  But we’d never thought of them as a lunch spot. One of my friends reported “best burger I ever ate!”, and the other said his Tuna Club ws the best he’d ever eaten.  Sounds  worth a trip to us!

Caraway Cafe a Big Winner !

Doubt that I’ve ever eaten a heartier, heftier, more delicious sandwish than the Tuna Melt I had yesterday from the Caraway Cafe at 202 E. Broughton St. This was light years away from the tuna melt that normally is some run of the mill tuna salad with a slice of American cheese melted over it. Here was a thick slab of tuna steak, grilled to perfection, and placed on a ciabatta roll. Filled with chunks of artichoke hearts, an interesting aioli-style dressing, bits of green, and topped with Gruyère, and accompanied by a lavishly large artichoke heart  salad,  the whole plate fed two of us hungry people with a fair amount left over to take home.  Lunch just doesn’t get any better than this!
