Local 11ten Restaurant Review

About the restaurant & d├ęcor: Local 11ten occupies a renovated old Savannah bank, so burnished historic architectural and decorative elements create its atmosphere, with flickering tapers everywhere. Contemporary yet historic, the interior benefits from an ever-changing art collection that adds a special dimension. Service in this fine dining yet casual establishment is polished and professional.

Likes: Professional service and wine list.
Dislikes: Figuring out the parking; needs valet.

Food & Drinks: Holding forth in the kitchen since 2010, executive chef Brandy Williamson changes the menu often, and while we lament the loss of the cooked-on-the-bone short ribs, we admire the French classic touches brought to bear on Southern foodstuffs. Thinly sliced radishes perch atop a split marrow bone, their sharp crispness a foil for the marrow's sweetness. Seared sea scallops come napped in chive beurre blanc while Cornish hen is stuffed with foie gras. Local cheeses from south Georgia's Sweet Grass Dairy are integrated into dishes as well as shape a meal-ending option alongside international selections. Creamy "L'il Moo," a cows milk cheese, makes a savory custard for an escargot tarte. The wine list challenges, engages and piques curiosity. In fine weather, enjoy the rooftop outdoor space, called "Perch," which offers views south of Forsyth Park.
