Pacci Italian Kitchen & Bar: "When you're through dining, walk around The Brice to appreciate the building's history. Constructed in the 1860s, it once housed a livery, cotton warehouse, foundry, machine shop and wholesale grocer. In 1902 it was converted into Savannah's first Coca-Cola bottling plant, where it remained until the company moved to a suburban location in 1980."
The Grey: "If you'd like to plan a special event at The Grey, the Boiler Room is the perfect place in which to host an intimate gathering."
The Florence: "On Sunday evenings, you can catch "movies and meatballs classic mobster movies," shown on the rooftop at 7:30 p.m. The current line-up features everything from "The Godfather" to "The Departed.""
You may think of Savannah as just another "pretty" destination, known for Southern gentility, history, stately mansions and charming streets, but it's quickly becoming one of America's premier dining destinations. Upscale restaurants - often tucked into storied buildings - offer innovative dishes, made with a host of fresh, local ingredients, while delightful neighborhood bistros showcase an eclectic mix of tasty, affordable fare. Even the most discerning palate will be pleased by the Savannah dining experience. As you would expect, a city so close to the Atlantic offers a plethora of seafood options. But, that's just the beginning. You'll also find a slate of authentic ethnic eateries, barbecue joints, pizzerias, sandwich shops and more. You'll definitely find the Southern influence in food around town, because, after all - you are in one of America's most quintessential Southern cities!
