River Street and the skyline of Savannah as seen
from the Westin Hotel on Hutchinson Island.
FAVORI TE BUILDING
The historic Armstrong House situated just north
of Forsyth Park, which was built as a private residence in 1919. You have to see it to believe it.
UGLIES T BUILDING
Without a doubt, the federal complex. The exterior
appears to be made from bath tiles.

modern Southern fare. Ask to be seated in the

the Georgia coast.

Savannah’s Kathleen Horne tells us
what’s good in the neighborhood

leave the bar with your to-go cup.
