A.Lure (in Savannah)

When deciding how we wanted to spend our New Year’s Eve in Savannah, Georgia, I looked through a lot of menus and yelp pages. After considering many options, we picked this restaurant because it has a contemporary approach to what would be classic southern food. It has beautiful artwork along the brick, historic architecture. It really did live up to showing a combination of low-country gourmet and use of local food.

The table each starts with some delicious bread, rolls, butter, and jam. Henry and I both said to ourselves we weren’t going to eat too much of it so that we weren’t too full for dinner, however, it was so good, we ate every last crumb.

For our appetizer, Henry and I shared the Braised Rabbit “Open Faced” Ravioli. This pasta was layered with a rabbit-bacon syrup, butternut squash, spinach, mushrooms, rosemary & thyme cream sauce.

Peas and Carrots

For my entree, I choose what they named as the “Peas & Carrots”, however, I would have called it seared sea scallops with risotto. The carrot and pea elements were such a great addition though with a flavorful carrot-ginger reduction, pea coulis, and my favorite: pea shoot salad.

For Henry’s entree, he took the advice of our food tour guide from earlier in the day and got the fanciest meatloaf ever. The dish had ground filet mignon, foie gras, cauliflower puree, blue cheese fingerling potato fries, green beans, and a red wine demi glaze.

Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert, but headed home for some more NYE champagne! If you’re in Savannah, GA, this would be a great choice.
