#ForksOut: New Restaurants as of November 1, 2022

Sometimes a business meal is a mini-vacation: a chance to unwind after a day full of meetings and travel or get to know the people you work with on a new level by connecting outside the office. The latest restaurants to join our network will have you feeling like you're on OOO time — whether you're in Savannah, L.A., Chicago, or anywhere else business takes you. Forks out and bottoms up, friends!

Savannah, GA

If you’re visiting Savannah on business, a trip to its iconic River Street is a must. Serving elevated pub fare in a sports bar environment, Dub’s Public House is perfect for catching up with colleagues over craft cocktails while watching your favorite team play on 12+ TVs. In the mood for a bit of competition with your business dining crew? Dub’s also has a game room! It is also available for private and semi-private events.

Savannah, GA

Besides a visit to River Street, business trips to Savannah call for fresh, local seafood. You can find all your faves at Fiddler’s Crab House & Oyster Bar, from Savannah’s largest selection of oysters to Georgia wild-caught shrimp and locally-brewed craft beers. It’s the perfect spot to get a “front row seat” to River Street’s historic cobblestones and the incredible waterfront views while you unwind in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Savannah locals know Molly McGuire’s, the “island” neighborhood bar and restaurant. If you want to feel like you’re on vacation during your business trip, this is the place!

Rollin Smoke Barbeque is passionate about barbecue, and it shows. With two decades of barbeque experience, its father-and-son team aims to please — whether you need to feed ten people or 10,000. Besides offering fall-off-the-bone, hickory-smoked barbeque for dine-in or catering, Rollin Smoke is dedicated to giving back. You can feel good knowing that a portion of your business meal purchase will support two Las Vegas-based nonprofits: Critical Care Comics and Engelland’s Vegas Born Heroes Foundation.

Los Angeles, CA

LA’s Rossoblu is an ode to Chef Steve Samson’s summers in Bologna, Italy — a “culinary wonderland” in the fertile Emilia-Romagna that was the birthplace of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, prosciutto di Parma and more. With freshly-made pasta, an in-house butchery, and a curated wine list (with a focus on family-owned grower wineries), Rossublu is a darling among critics but also welcoming and unpretentious. We recommend the minestra nel sacco, a traditional Bolognese dumpling dish, during your next business meal.

Tybee Island, GA

If you’re traveling to picturesque Tybee Island or the Savannah area on business, you might as well mix business with pleasure. It’s easy to do at Spanky’s, a friendly Tybee Island favorite famous for its chicken fingers (though you can also enjoy delicious quesadillas, seafood baskets, burgers, and more). Once you’ve got one of Spanky’s frozen daiquiris or a piña colada in your hand, you’ll forget you aren’t on vacation!
