Another Restaurant Obituary

Sugar Daddy’s, with good food, good wine list and in a nice location, has bitten the dust.  Too bad.  I always find it sad when a restaurant goes under.  Hence, my oft repeated refrain to all:  Please, please everyone…avoid the chains and the fast-food joints.  Patronize our locally owned restaurants and eateries.  The owners/chefs of these establishments work long, hard hours, their food is a more unique and fresher than that of any chain, and every dish is filled with love and hope.  So make it your motto:  Eat Local!

Sugar Daddy’s is sweetly promising

The recently opened Sugar Daddy’s Wine and Food Bar is the latest eatery to join the popular “small plate” trend in the downtown area.  On Jefferson, right off Broughton, the location couldn’t be better. With an extensive wine and beer list, plus a full bar and good food, this place should be a hit. Two of us have sampled on a couple of occasions. Naturally, we tried the ubiquitous Duck Confit Panini, moist, tender and aromatic with garlic and thyme, just as it should be. On another occasion, one of us tried to salmon salad–fresh greens, highlighted with red grapefruit segments and other delicacies. The Local Jumbo Shrimp was good, too, although I think the term Jumbo might be subject to conjecture. The shrimp rested atop a bed of fresh off the cob, nicely seasoned corn. The corn was lovely, but it was hard to see why the chef chose to be so stingy with its quantity when corn is among the least expensive of veggies. Desserts provide sweet decadence.

Try Sugar Daddy’s yet? We did..

The latest food and wine bar in savannah, Sugar Daddy’s, at 109 Jefferson, may well turn out to be the latest downtown in-spot. We had our first try with the salmon salad, fresh greens, sliced almonds, ruby red grapefruit, red onions, and goat cheese tossed with citrus vinaigrette and topped with broiled  wild salmon. It was downright delish! Then we shared a slow roasted chicken Panini, and the duck confit Panini. The chicken Panini, slow roasted, pulled chicken with sun-dried tomatoes, roasted tricolor peppers and Parmesan, with apple smoked bacon pecan-pesto spread provided a delightful array of flavors from spicy sweet to musky and smokey. The duck confit was slow roasted as well, marinated with vine ripened tomatoes, sliced asparagus and finished with a shallot Bing cherry goat cheese spread on Panini. This one came with a with a small salad of the same delicious greens as in the salmon salad. Three plates ranging in price from $6-$9 proved to be an ample dinner for two.  The location is quite convenient  on a street less traveled.  This place strikes me as being a real winner.
