Savannah, Georgia is, like many Southern cities, all about the hospitality. There may not be better proof of this urban temperament than a restaurant located in a house - The Olde Pink House Restaurant.
The restaurant is housed in a buidling dating to 1771 and has been a popular gathering place for residents of Savannah for years. Get the best of the neighboring ocean and of Southern cuisine with the Crispy Scored Flounder entree - this delightful dish is the entire fish served whole save for the head, with a crosshatch of incisions on the surface to let its apricot and shallot glaze soak in. The savory skin, discarded on many fish, is cooked to crispy perfection and compliments the sweet, fruity sauce.
And just when you think that your meal can't get any better, the flounder's accompaniments, grits from Anson Mills' organic heirloom wheat and collard greens, will blow you away. The Olde Pink House cooks grits to the ultimate texture and the greens practically melt in your mouth.
Don't skip out early: the live music performed at The Olde Pink House regularly is another one of its attractions!
