A fond farewell to Sweetleaf

Sweetleaf Smokery & Eatery just folded, much to the disappointment of many of us. Seems that location may be jinxed. First, years ago, there was 606 beloved by all. It closed and moved downtown.  Then Mugsy’s came and survived for a year or two and closed. Then came Good Eats, famed for its Muligatawny Soup, adored by tout Savannah.  After several years it, too, was felled by the Abercorn St. jinx. After a time Sweetleaf arrived and it, too, did well, but a few months ago it lost its beer and wine license which seems to have precipitated its demise. Perhaps the location needs a chef who is also an exorcist.

Aphrodisiacs for Valentine’s?

Aphrodisiacs for Valentine’s Day? Couldn’t hurt. Asparagus and oysters, two of the most popular, are certainly good eats and make for good conversation. And conversation, as

a friend of ours says, “may not be an aphrodisiac, but it’s sure great foreplay!”

Serve asparagus with any fish or meat dish, especially broiled Shad or lamb. And the sensuous Oysters Bienville served by Chef Chris DiNello at Alligator Soul would surely, if only because of the sheer delight in eating them, put anyone in the mood for love.
