Culinarily speaking, staple dishes become classics when a recipe is as perfectly devised as possible. But who’s to say that these classics can’t take on a new life that lends itself to natural, local agriculture? Daniel Berman is doing just that, with Lowcountry classics and local seafood at a.Lure.

Located in downtown Savannah on West Congress Street, a.Lure features a rustic, modern atmosphere in which to get comfortable and savor dishes such as crab cakes or rabbit ravioli. For the main course, enjoy a Lowcountry boil, a filet mignon or their take on meatloaf.

a.Lure’s farm-to-fork attitude doesn’t end with the food. Try a famous signature Nuts & Grains Manhattan, voted best cocktail in the state of Georgia by Food Network Magazine, and to round out the evening, dig in to one of their house-made desserts.
