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.
Housed in what was an ice factory back in the day, The Florence is manned by Chef Kyle Jacovino who previously worked at Hugh’s Atlanta outpost Empire State South. 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.
Have you eaten at The Florence? Are the cannolis something of legend? Tell us what you think in the comments below or fire off a tweet @Southern_Living.
