Best Restaurants in Midtown Savannah: A Trip Around the Globe

Midtown, a neighborhood composed of quaint residential streets and popular shopping areas, may just be Savannah's best kept secret among foodies. Some of the city’s best restaurants are sprinkled throughout this conveniently located neighborhood, including several outstanding ethnic eateries.

One of Midtown’s best restaurants is a little hole in the wall called Sweet Spice, an eatery dedicated to Jamaican cuisine. If jerk and curry aren’t your speed, then head next door to Joe’s Homemade Café, Catering & Bakery, a lunch joint that serves soups, salads and sandwiches.

Midtown Savannah’s Habersham Village is home to several outstanding restaurants including Bella’s, a Savannah staple that serves traditional Italian entrees, and, an upscale bar with a nice menu of French-Asian-inspired small plates. The 5 Spot, the newest eatery to open in Habersham Village, is a casual American kitchen and bar that’s quickly become a favorite among locals.

For a taste of Southeast Asia, head to The Noodle Bowl, a low-key restaurant that offers a nice selection of dishes from China and Vietnam. The King and I, in the same shopping center, is one of the best places in town for Thai food.

If you’re craving soul food, be sure to check out Sweet Potatoes, a Midtown eatery that serves generous portions of Southern favorites like barbecue chicken, corn pudding, collards and fried catfish. And finally, if you have an eclectic palate and like a little bit of everything, don’t pass up Toucan Café, Sweet Potatoes’ sister restaurant, which has a terrific menu that includes everything from feta chicken to bourbon salmon.
