Temporary Suspension

Due to an illness in the family, I have to temporarily discontinue most of my postings on this blog. I’m afraid I will not have the time to go out scouting around for new restaurants or new dishes at old favorites. Of course, if something comes my way, Ill post it or if any of my readers have little tidbits of news about eateries or the world of foodies in general, I will be delighted to post it. Just sent them to me at Tidbits@savannahbest.com.
Hopefully, I will be back in stride soon!

More than satisfied at Satisfied

On my most recent trip to Satisfied, I started off with their Flash Fried Asparagus as an appetizer. Now I love asparagus, and have eaten dozens of fried asparagus appetizers over the years, most of which I usually carefully extract from their coating and just eat the delicious green stalk. But their light and delicate batter is in itself filled with flavor, and I gobbled down every bite of it, all enhanced with a bit of mango aioli. Downright delicious!

Maxwell’s: Shining Bright with Promise

Maxwell’s, at 109 Jefferson, opened just a few week’s ago, and looks like it just might be the newest and best of small-plate restaurants in downtown.  We already had dinner plans when we stopped in, so couldn’t sample much, but did try the Buffalo Mozzarella Bruschetta, which proved itself immediately with that always luscious buffalo Mozzarella, fresh tomato, fresh basil chiffonade on crostinis with olive tapenade and a sweet balsamic drizzle.  The day’s specials posted were for lamb chops or one of two kind of scallops, each around $17.  Among the enticing plates on the menu are a salad of roasted beets and braised fennel served over arugula with goat cheese and a honey champagne vinaigrette….. That will definitely be my next taste at his place!  A menu as delectable as this, a chef from Garibaldi’s, a good downtown location should add up to a Must Go new hot spot!
