Savannah’s culinary scene is all about location. It draws upon the heritage of Southern cooking and on global influences coming into its port. Its proximity to the ocean also keeps it supplied with fresh seafood. Lowcountry dishes like Brunswick stew, crab boils, and shrimp and grits are ubiquitous at local joints.
