We’re giddy about Chef Hugh Acheson like preteens over One Direction. From his cookbook A New Turn in the South or his restaurants like Empire State South, call us superfans. We’re totally crushing on his latest venture, The Florence, in Savannah, Georgia.

The menu is Italian-driven with dishes like Chicken Liver Pate Bruschetta, pasta with Tybee Island Shrimp, and pizza decked out in chorizo and queso.
