TWO NEAT PLACES FOR LUNCH

We recently had lunch at two really neat places. The first was in Savannah, Georgia, at an Irish Pub, pictured here with the two women in the doorway. I haven't a clue who they are, but they just kept standing there, discussing if they were going to eat there or not, so I snapped their picture. The restaurant was just a small, dark, almost hole in the wall place along the revitalized riverfront in Savannah. I imagine it used to serve as a warehouse for cotton or something, and it has been redone, using the original buildings for something other than what they were intended for. It had atmosphere - a low ceiling, stone walls, and bare wood plank floors.
We ordered the special for the day: a cup of Irish Stew and a half a corned beef sandwich. Both were absolutely delicious, and reasonably priced. The view out the door, had we been sitting where we could have seen out the door, was a riverboat waiting for passengers for the afternoon cruise along the riverfront. We walked the cobblestone streets instead.

The second lunch was at the Middleton Plantation Restaurant. The low brick building was nestled under the huge oak trees, heavily hung with Spanish moss. We were right by the window and I took a shot through the window to show you the view. There we had a choice of several specials for the day, and we each picked something different. I had okra soup, pulled pork with corn pudding and hoppin' john (seasoned rice and blackeyed peas) and a very interesting, thin, crusty, plain, but delicious, torte. Hubby had a salad with grilled shrimp, and a gumbo that had shrimp and beef and vegetables in it. He also had the torte. We don't make it a practice to eat out very often, but when we do we like t try something new and different. We seldom eat at the chain restaurants.
