The Grey Review – Brunch So Good We Visited Twice

The Grey in Savannah is a unique restaurant serving up Southern-inspired fare with modern twists. The head chef, Mashama Bailey, is a James Beard award-winner, and the restaurant itself is housed in an old Greyhound station that is simply stunning.

The Old Oyster Factory Review – A Hilton Head Seafood Staple

On our recent trip to Hilton Head Island, we had several meals on the water but the restaurant with the best combination of great food and beautiful views had to be The Old Oyster Factory.

Although this one sits on the inlet of Broad Creek and not along the ocean, we thought the ambiance and setting was just beautiful. Add in a delicious raw bar, wonderfully executed seafood dishes, and a solid wine list, and you have one of our favorite restaurants on Hilton Head Island.

Ithaa at the Conrad Maldives Review – Dining in an Underwater Restaurant

The Conrad Maldives Rangali is full of over-the-top dining experiences, but perhaps the most extravagant is Ithaa. Ithaa is an underwater restaurant situated five meters below the surface where you can dine surrounded by views of coral and fish.

As you might imagine, the prices for this once in a lifetime experience are steep. The champagne hour will set you back $85, lunch is $220 per person, while dinner will run you a cool $330 per person (and these prices are all before taxes and fees which are an extra 22%).

We decided to take a middle of the road approach and have lunch at Ithaa. Note that reservations are required, but on the day we dined only three out of the seven tables were full.
