A Guest Blog Post by Jonathan Able
Okay, you and your partner are in Savannah, and you think you’ve done it all.
You dined out, you’ve ridden a trolley car up and down cobblestone streets, and you’ve even trekked out to Tybee Island to soak up some low country sun, and now you’ve just got one question:
Why not take a departure from the tried-and-true tourist trail, and discover lively locals’ spot, Bar.Food. Don’t let the name’s simplicity lead you to believe it’s anything other than one of the friendliest neighborhood restaurants to grab a light dinner and a little something to whet your whistle.
Serving up a variety of food from it’s fusion menu, Bar.Food boasts sweet and savory dishes tapas-style dishes with an Asian-Southern twist. From vegetable plates with pickled okra to noodle bowls starring chicken, fish, or duck, its menu features something for every taste palette.
There’s even more traditional options, like sliders, a very-shareable blue cheese and chips platter, and homemade hummus-of-the-day.
Bar.Food owners, Johnny Baker and Paula Letcher, are proud to welcome locals in the beautiful Ardsley Park area and tourists alike into their neighborhood spot; but really, they’re happiest to invite anyone with a smile on their face and the desire to sit back and have a good time, including the gay-friendly crowd.
The best feature about Bar.Food is that you’ll never meet a stranger. Servers and clientele alike love meeting new folks from all over – so don’t be shy!
Every Tuesday, Johnny and Paula choose one drink from the bar to go on special for $1 – who can beat that? Tuesday’s at Bar.Food draw everyone from 9-5ers looking for a friendly happy hour, to hip, young 20-somethings in search of an unpretentious weeknight hangout. But you’ll want to hurry, because these puppies sellout fast!
As Julie, bartender at Bar.Food, would say, “Y’all come back now, ya hear!”
