Good News for Devotees of The New South Cafe

Rumors have abounded about the fate of The New South Cafe, which recently closed its Skidaway Road location. Good news for the fans of this lovely spot! Chef Matt Cohen announces that The New South is relocating to accommodate a much larger and more spacious restaurant. It is now located just minutes from downtown Savannah in Pooler. “We outgrew our Skidaway Road kitchen and dining room.” Now at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum, the restaurant, serving the same popular gourmet style comfort food, is open for lunch from 11 am to 2 pm, and starting in January will be open for dinner. For more info, call 748-8888.
