Glass Onion (Savannah Hwy)

The cashier described the cuisine as Southern-Romantic, with a contemporary flair. I would completely agree, and so would you, if you've had the cuisine at the Glass Onion. They change their menu often, so much so that they don't have a set menu. This place is definitely not boring. I had the pleasure of tasting the Crispy Berkshire Pork with Butterbean-Tomato Salad and Aioli.
Crispy Berkshire Pork
It was pulled pork, formed, and pan seared on the top and bottom.
Then, to follow, I had their "world famous bread pudding."  If it's "world famous" I've got to try it.
The bad: The pork was a wee bit salty, but the bed of butter bean tomato salad balanced it out well.
The good: Fresh local ingredients used, a real fountain drink, and the bread pudding was awesome!  Can I just talk about the bread pudding? It was as if as I was eating it, it was telling me that it loved me. Real comfort, soothing, hot, touched my soul. Yes, it's that great.
The conclusion: The Glass Onion is a wonderful place to go if you don't want the same ole stuff, and please save room for the bread pudding.  Agreed.....Southern romantic with a contemporary flair.
