For our last dinner together in Savannah, Paige and I decided to treat ourselves to dinner at The Olde Pink House, a restaurant located at an old house, which is pink! This place was highly recommended to Paige by her co-worker, and we were in for a treat.
Every room in the Pink House is decorated in a historic style, and every room is slightly different from the other. We were seated at an attic: it was dark, moody, and quite romantic: how fitting! (I am totally kidding!)
Our waitress was incredibly nice, and we were sad she had to put up with a guest who was being a total arse to her! This guy (in his late fifties, at dinner with his wife) was giving our waitress the hardest time because a server brought him a different salad than what he had ordered! He made the waitress recite from memory what the original salad should have been. A manager came over, niceties were said, and I'm sure they got a free meal. Anyways....
Since Georgia is known for its peaches, Paige and I ordered a peach martini: surprisingly it had no effect on me whatsoever, but it was very sweet, smooth and pretty. I bet I could have had a few more :)
This being our one splurge dinner, we decided to go all out: drinks, appetizers, entrees, and dessert!
For my appetizer I had half a dozen oysters on half shell served with lemon, horseradish and cocktail sauce. I was so pleased: the oysters were incredibly fresh and were served straight up on ice. This reminded me of the dinner I had with Anna in New Orleans at the Acme House: fond memories. As you can see, I had no problem finishing up my appetizer, and probably could have had another half dozen. But I restrained myself.
For the main course, I ordered scallops with mashed potatoes and a medley of green vegetables. This reminded me of a seafood restaurant I went to with Jenn during our beach vacation. The scallops were sweet, perfectly cooked through, and slightly caramelized on the outside. The mashed potatoes had a few fried scallions on top: so very good! The green medley consisted of French green beans, edamame and snow peas: see, I was eating my vegetables (not to mention a salad I had for lunch to accompany the wings Paige and I shared).
And then, of course, there was the dessert! I'm so not one of those girls who say "oh no! I'm so full. There was so much food, I cannot eat the dessert." Right...maybe that's why I'm not a size 2...but I hardly think it'd be worth it.
Stepping down off of my soapbox.
Paige's friend, who recommended this restaurant, specifically told her which dessert to order. Our great waitress also mentioned the same dessert. After hearing the other options, I agreed: we ordered a delicate cup made from pralines and filled with ice cream, mango puree and fresh fruit. As if this was not enough, the plate was drizzled with chocolate, and there was some sort of a sweet creamy thing on the plate as well. This was a perfect way to finish the meal.
If you are in Savannah, definitely check out this place for dinner. They are so well known, they don't even have a website!
