Random Foodie Ruminations

**Congratulations to Goose Feathers Cafe.  They were named among the top 101 breakfasts in America by Urbanspoon.  Coming in at #38.

**High Road Ice Cream is a high end “Craft Ice Cream” maker out of Atlanta.  They are sold in Whole Foods in the Southeast.  I was hoping they’d be part of the Whole Foods in Savannah.  This week I got it confirmed.   You’ll be able to try their more than $5 per pint amazingness in August when Whole Foods opens.  (My price is based on the $5.99 I paid for a pint in Atlanta last month).

sapphire-grill-m**It’s already one of my favorite spots for a late night cocktail and quick bite to eat, now Sapphire Grill is getting a new Sous Chef to mix things up a little bit.  Look for him and a new summer menu first week of June.

**Noble Fare is tinkering with the idea of Friday night wine tastings and hors d’oeuvres for $20.   Probably the best value in town.    Nothing set in stone yet, but we’ll let you know when it happens again.

**Belford’s in City Market has a new chef.  Chris Adgate comes to Savannah from the Fort Myers, Florida area.  Had a nice chat with him recently.  He has big plans for the menu over the next few months.  “We are going to step things up” he says.   I’ll keep you posted.

Southbound**Southbound Brewing Company has finally rolled out a keg.  Scattered Belgian Wit was gone in 74 minutes at World of Beer last week.  This week?  IPA.  Join us as we Drink It and Like It this week.  Thursday night.  WOB Savannah

**Papillote on Broughton Street has finally sold.  New ownership taking over for keeps on May 20th.  More on them soon.

**Put The Optimist on your list of stops next road trip to Atlanta.   Thank me later.

**Chef John Massey…formerly of Rocks on the River,  is no longer with Dub’s Pub.  I’m told he’s working on “something seafood.”

toby-keiths**Toby Keith’s “I Love this Bar and Grill” is coming to the Savannah Mall.  I’ve visited the one in Las Vegas.  Think Coyote Ugly meets Road House.  I’m sure there will be plenty of Red Solo Cups for your enjoyment.  Fifteen thousand square feet opening in 2014.

**In case you missed it last week, Eat It and Like It’s Season 2 episode “Sushi” has been nominated for an EMMY.  This is our second nomination.  We are beyond honored.

**You can follow us daily on Facebook and my daily tomfoolery on Twitter @eatitandlikeit.

**The guys at FORM are looking to make a big move.  We all win if they pull it off.  Cross your fingers and we’ll keep you posted.

**One last shout out to Taste of Downtown.  A fine job by the Savannah Chamber of Commerce.  Packed house and amazing bites all over Johnson Square.  Really a shining moment for Savannah’s culinary scene.

Eat It and Like It launched in Savannah, Georgia with television personality Jesse Blanco as the host. His passion for food and travel has made Eat It and Like It a two-time EMMY nominated program about contemporary and traditional Southern food.

    I don’t know who Mr.Waldrup is or what experience he has as a food critic, but was quiet surpriced at his review of R.O.S,E Public. I have eaten at this restaurant at least six times since it opended, both lunch and dinner. I suggest Mr. Waldrup look around at the
    diners.sitting around him. I have looked at the plates of diners and thay have all been empty. In my opinion, the best judge of a restaurant is what goes back to the kitchen, uneaten. All of our friends who have eaten at R.O.S.E. Public House have returned. I suggest Mr. Waldrup do the same. Also, not everyone in Savannah is a wine snob. Lighten up.
