Valentines Day in Savannah

Just in time for Valentines Day we get word that Savannah was ranked the 3rd most romantic city in America by Open Table, an on-line restaurant reservation service. Their criteria was pretty simple. Numbers of tables for two reserved, percentage of people responding to their survey as having had a “romantic dinner” and percentage of people who dined out for Valentines Day 2016. That’s it.

I’ve got to say that while I’m not surprised that Savannah was 3rd on the list, I am absolutely shocked that Oklahoma City was number one. With all due respect, huh?  We share the full list below.

A lot of restaurants in Savannah roll out special menus for that “Hallmark Holiday” when you know you are going to get slammed with guests dining out, it’s easier to trim down your menu and do fewer things well.  Collins Quarter is offering a special Valentine’s Day menu. As is 22 square inside the Andaz Hotel.

Just remember, whatever you decide to do, make a reservation, be patient and Eat It and Like It.

See you on TV,
