In the latest news of the Savannah storefront shuffle, Rocket Fizz (320 W. Broughton St.) has opened in the former Prospector Co. The franchise is home to what might be the largest concentration of sugar per square foot in Savannah—selling everything from Pop Rocks and wax lips to 200-plus flavors of soda, including an entire cooler devoted to obscure root beers … Local businessman Laukik Patel is taking a somewhat healthier tack with Buzzin’ Café (38 Barnard St.), situated in the previous Kitchens on the Square location. Expect an organic juice and smoothie bar, as well as fresh sandwiches and the latest trendy dessert: liquid nitrogen ice cream … The old Juarez Mexican restaurant is now home to East End Provisions (420 E. Broughton St.), a lunch and dinner spot slated to open in August. Gaslight Group (B.Matthew’s, The 5 Spot, Blowin’ Smoke, Abe’s on Lincoln) is behind the venture, which will feature “a modern American wood-fired menu,” says co-owner Jennifer Huskey … Speaking of provisions, Edgar’s Proof and Provision (15 E. Liberty St.) has opened on the ground level of the The DeSoto by Sotherly Hotels. The focus is on small plates with locally sourced ingredients, as well as a bourbon bar with the restaurant’s private-label bourbon, Edgar’s Proof. Dusty Grove, formerly of Pacci, is the chef de cuisine … Over in the Twelve Oaks shopping center, The Cinnamon Bear (5500 Abercorn St.) has moved into what used to be Kitchenware Outfitters. Its third location in town, the gift shop is stocked with home goods and gourmet foods, accessories and souvenirs.
