Will Herrington in the kitchen at Kitchen 320 in Savannah

“This tomato tart means a lot to me. This is my mother – this dish takes me home,” said Executive Chef Will Herrington as he set down yet another of our multi-course Southern-themed dinner at the new Kitchen 320. Home isn’t too far away for this talented chef, who is from south Georgia and is now heating up the kitchen with dishes from his childhood at the signature restaurant for B Historic Hotel in Savannah, Georgia.

The tomato tart with Vidalia onion and crust flakier than a southern debutante was the best I’d ever had, which was followed by delicious Georgia white shrimp, sweet tea chicken wings and skirt steak.  (“This dish is my daddy and me cooking outside together.”)

Breakfast dishes define decadence with items like pecan-crusted French toast, country ham pancakes and eggs Benedict served on a buttermilk biscuit with tomato jam and blueberries. Every dish I had here was memorably delicious, made even more special when served with the passion of the chef behind it all.
