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.

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.
