June 11 - Squirrel's To Open Friday, June 21

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

June 11, 2019 - From Chef-owner Chris Dickerson, of Jacksonville’s popular Corner Taco, comes his newest concept: Squirrel’s. Having relocated to Savannah, Dickerson will open Squirrel’s in the city’s thriving midtown district. Squirrel’s is a semi-swanky eatery, dishing up reinvented Italian fare with a focus on pecan wood-fired pizza.

Part restaurant, part bar, part lounge, Squirrel’s creates a distinctive dining experience with a focus on crave-worthy pizza guided by the spirit of Italian craft techniques. Characterized by a crisp, yet airy crust, pizzas are topped with fresh ingredients made in-house or sourced throughout the United States, then finished in a custom-built Pavesi oven. Guests can enjoy classic pies, such as the Margaret, which features organic Bianco DiNapoli Tomatoes, housemade mozzarella, parmesan, extra virgin olive oil, local basil pureé; as well as unique creations, like the Benny Blanco Royale, which is a white pizza topped with housemade mozzarella, parmesan, rosemary, lemon agrumato, and lamb shoulder. In addition to pizza, the menu offers a selection of sandwiches and flavorful bites to divide and conquer together. The bar, clad with warm white oak tambour panels and topped with a Carrara marble surface, houses a selection of craft beer, a thoughtfully curated wine list, sublime martini options, and classic cocktails.

Nestled within an international style building with ribbon windows and a steel and brick facade, Squirrel’s interior is stylish, inviting, and approachable. Old-world lacquered paneling imparts a library-meets-speakeasy lounge sensibility, while the deep teal wall color seamlessly unifies the entire interior. Across from the bar, a leather bench and booths offer additional seating for guests, while at the front of the intimate interior a casual lounge area highlights a portrait wall of squirrel ancestors, a nod to the restaurant's name.
