SAVANNAH: The Florence (Hugh Acheson)?

erica | Mar 25, 201601:49 PM

While I know nothing about Hugh Acheson, I did notice that he is a Beard nominee, and that he has a fairly new
Italian-inspired restaurant away from the tourist area in Savannah.

We will be in Savannah for two nights next month; I have already booked The Grey, but find little on The Florence apart from Yelp and Trip Advisor, where the reports are all over the map. I do not put much stock in either of those sites, so wonder if anyone from CH can offer an opinion about this place. We are from NYC, so have many excellent Italian places within easy reach.

Would it be "worth" spending one dinner here and if not, where else? Maybe two nights at The Grey?

Would prefer to walk or take taxi rather than drive ourselves but will have our own car and can use if great food is at the end of the drive. (The Wyld Dock Bar??) I did read about B's Cracklin' BBQ but we will be heading for Eastern NC, so BBQ is not of paramount interest, unless it is really superb.
