Both locals and tourists alike deem The Grey as one of the hottest tables in Savannah, Georgia. With high-end, retro-feel furnishings, The Grey serves up modern Southern eats in a refurbished, art deco Greyhound bus depot from 1938. The restaurant focuses on highlighting local produce; must try dishes include the foie and grits, Carolina gold rice, and roasted yardbird. Guests can also enjoy a cocktail at one of the restaurant’s two bars. We suggest indulging in The Pearl at the bar – featuring tequila, lime, strawberry and pistachio.
