Chapitre 2: An Encounter Célèbre in Savannah, GA

It’s common knowledge that Los Angeles and New York host some of the most célébrités connues in the world; however, there’s another city – tucked away among the marshes and in between the alligators and swamp flies – that also screams: célébrités. This humid, célébrités infested city is called Savannah, Georgia.

The city is most known for its appearance in Forest Gump; however, it is also known for good, southern food as a result of 2 cooking shows célèbres on The Food Network, thanks to Paula Dean. 

Paula Dean is known as the Queen of Southern Cuisine (read her bio here).

In 1996, she opened her own restaurant, The Lady & Sons. Due to the popularité and succès of the Lady & Sons, in 2003, she moved The Lady & Sons to a larger building.

To dine at this southern-food paradis, you have to call ahead. Walk-ins are accepté; however, you won’t be seated immediately. En fait, the wait is usually a minimum of 1.5 hours (and rightfully so!).

5 Raisons to Make a Réservation at The Lady & Son’s in Savannah:

  • It’s southern cooking at its finest! 

Fried green tomatoes.

  • The serveurs greet everyone with good ol’ southern hospitalité. Even those walk-in patrons who become antsy as they wait for their names to be called.
  • There’s a buffet full of delicious, southern cuisine. Of course, there’s a menu full of entrées, plats principaux, and desserts…

…but the buffet tops it all! I had the luxury of filling my stomach full (too full) of green beans, macaroni & cheese, southern boiled potatoes, fried chicken, and so much more at the buffet.

  • You’re sure to run into a célébrité. Whether it’s Paula Dean or one (or both) of her sons (they’re known to stop by the restaurant) or even a célébrité dining at the restaurant, you’re sure to run into someone!

  • They serve sirop with cornbread! There’s no better way to start a meal than with cornbread and some maple sirop!

Apparemment, old-fashioned southern cornbread looks like northern pancakes.

If you ever find yourself in Savannah, be sure to make a réservation for some good, old-fashioned southern grub at The Lady & Sons. ♦
