Savannah is one of my favorite towns. It has it all - beautiful homes, great shopping and delicious food. After checking in the Hyatt, Kenny and I hit the streets. Our first stop was at the Lady and Sons Restaurant. After making dinner reservations, we made our way to the Starbucks on Broad. As we waited in line, we realized this was our first trip since Italy. With that in mind, we ordered cappuccinos. Starbucks cappuccinos are good but they don't come close to the rich taste of the Italian version.

With coffee in hand, we make our way to The Paris Market, a unique shop with lots of home furnishings and accessories. The next stop is Kitchens on the Square to see what goodies we must have for our kitchen. I love this shop. It is packed with everything you might possibly need to plan, prepare, and serve food. The shop has changed since our last visit, adding a demonstration kitchen and on-site classes. They have a great "Lunch + Learn" class offered every Tuesday and Thursday. Before leaving we made our list of "must have" items.

Our next destination is River Street. The tugboats are busy today, leading the enormous container ships down the river. After a drink and steamed oysters at Huey's we take a quick rest in our room.

Tonight we had dinner at Paula Deen's The Lady and Sons restaurant. Paula is best known as Food Network's southern diva. This is not our first time at TL&S. In the past, I have always opted for the buffet but tonight I decided to order from the menu. Our waitress was most accommodating, allowing me to substitute the Corn and Asparagus Salad for my side dish to the Crab Stuffed Shrimp. The bacon-wrapped shrimp were cooked perfectly with the bacon crispy and the shrimp tender and succulent. The salad was crunchy and somewhat sweet. The shrimp was drizzled with a lemon basil cream sauce, but I honestly didn't taste the sauce at all. Kenny choose the bufffet and was not disappointed by the fried chicken. If you are planning a trip to Savannah, be sure and put TL&S on your list.
