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!

Chicken Pot Pie of Another Kind

My reaction to Chicken Pot Pie is generally a yawn. If I must, I mutter to myself if it’s served to me. But someone told me about the one that Chef Herve at Papillote was serving and that definitely sounded like something I had to try.  And after all, so far, Chef Herve has never let us down. This turned out to be a spectacular dish!  Chicken, tender white meat,  wide, thin slices of exceptionally sweet carrots, celery, onions and grapes, were anointed with a lovely curry sauce!  then topped with a delicately crisp puff pastry crust.  It’s a Special, so watch for it, beg for it if you have to, but try it, you’ll love it!

Alligator Soul Inspires A Rarity

Last week I received something quite amazing. It was a letter. Not an email, but a letter, handwritten on high quality onogrammed stationery, sent through the USPS, otherwise known as snail mail. This lovely missive came from a cousin in San Francisco who had visited Savannah several weeks earlier.  On her last night here, she had told me she wanted to take my husband and me out to dinner and she wanted to go to our favorite restaurant.  So we went to Alligator Soul. I don’t recall exactly what any of us had. Probably I had my favorite Shrimp and Grits, and I’m sure we all would have had their really spectacular House Salad with the luscious parmesan croutons. Whatever the case, apparently Alligator Soul really made an impression on my cousin, inspiring the letter. What’s more, she said she thought it was the best restaurant she had ever been to in her life in the United States. And this woman has lived for the last 30 some years in San Francisco, a city noted for its fine restaurants.

Joe’s Crab Shack Now Open on River Street

Since I am highly prejudiced in favor of locally owned business, it is with mixed feelings that I even post this. However, this place has some good things going for it. The fact that I’m told it has lobster on the menu is a big plus, since there is a definite dearth of lobster in Savannah. Oh, how I wish Savannah had one of those wonderful lobster houses like you find in cities from New York to Los Angeles, where they fly the luscious critters in live, daily. Well, maybe someday….  The other t hing that Savannah has always lacked is waterfront dining.  Joe’s Crab Shack is right on the water’s edge!  I haven’t tried it yet, but will do so in the near future. I’ll look forward to readers’ input on that!  Perusing their on-line menu, it certainly strikes me that this place is trying to hard to please everyone, with such items as club sandwiches and cheeseburgers.  But they certainly have a fine selection of various types of crab!      So let me know your thoughts, folks!
