According to the Globalphile Curator, Robert H. Glaze, "Savannah has it all. "Foodies" will love the traditional restaurants as well as the newer cutting-edge spots. "History Buffs" will enjoy the museums, touring the historic homes and walking the historic squares. Those interested in art will find both traditional and contemporary offerings. And what is not to like about the smell of magnolias and jasmine which fill the night air."
Globalphile recommendations for Savannah restaurants include Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room, where people line up beginning at 10:30 am for great home-style cooking served family-style. One of the best food experiences anywhere. Elizabeth on 37th is an award-winning restaurant just outside the historic district. The Old Pinke House offers Southern Specialties. Vic's on the River, B. Matthews Eatery, Sapphire Grill and Soho South Cafe are all worth the visit. Local 11ten is a sleek contemporary restaurant, with great decor and a great seasonal menu. Leopold's Ice Cream is a must after dinner. For local color, stop in for a drink at Pinkie Master's Lounge where one might just meet a character from John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
Savannah history comes to life in Globalphile recommended tours of the Owen-Thomas House, The Andrew Low House, the Isaiah Davenport House and the Mercer Williams House. The Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum is also worth the visit. A walking tour of the squares and historic architecture will enhance the experience.
Further recommendations include SCAD or the Savannah College of Art and Design, which has helped transform the downtown area. A visit to the new SCAD Museum of Art and their three other exhibition spaces is a must. The Telfair Academy has a collection of American Impressionism and Ashcan School Realism, while its Jepson Center across the street offers contemporary art in a building by well-known architect Moshe Safdie.
For lodging, Glaze prefers the Hamilton Turner Inn on LaFayette Square as a perfect spot from which to explore the city. He also suggests a visit to ShopSCAD, a store featuring the work of students, faculty and alumni and V&J Duncan, a great shop, carrying old engravings, botanical prints, photographs, books and maps.
