Lance and I celebrated our third year anniversary at Elizabeth on 37th. The restaurant is every bit of southern charm with its oversized front porch, tall columns and large windows framed with trim. It was a mansion built for a cotton broker in the 1900’s. In 1981 Chef Elizabeth Terry opened it up as a restaurant. It has went on to win many rewards and has been featured in many magazines. At first bite you’ll understand why. The coastal cuisine was inspired by traditional historic dishes from Savannah that Elizabeth researched for the restaurant. Today it is ran by brothers Gary and Greg Butch and still features Elizabeth’s recipes.
I was so excited to dine here for our anniversary. I bought this romper a little bit ago and was waiting for the right occasion to wear it. I love the innovative blue and white look with the puff sleeves. It felt like vintage royalty; perfect for this date. At dinner it started raining pretty bad. The rain beating on the windows was quite pleasant but a loud thunder came causing me to yell at the top of my lungs. When we were done eating our waiter (who was amazing) encouraged us to wait out the storm but we (Lance) wanted to get home. Lance went out to brave the storm with a borrowed umbrella from the restaurant. He pulled up our vehicle and escorted me to the car. He returned the umbrella and was preparing to get soaked when a barefoot gentleman with an umbrella, who also braved the storm approached him and said “This is Savannah man, come on!”.
