Looking at the new Savor  gastropub from the outside, with the glass walls and large open space, you might think it would be a cold and sterile dining experience-especially on the chilly, rainy night we decided to dine here. But step inside and you immediately feel like this is a special place. The flickering candles on the table, the beautiful view of Klyde Warren Park and the Arts District, the bustling open kitchen and the friendly staff make you feel warm and happy inside. The restaurant is soft and comfortable with buttery leather booths that are well spaced where you can enjoy privacy yet still feel part of the buzzy vibe. A "keg wall," comprised of craft beers and wines on tap, separate the bar and the dining room. They also have a nice selection of signature hand-crafted cocktails.

The menu is mostly comprised of small plates and shareables, perfect for nibbling and imbibing any time of day (lunch service starts October 18) but there are also a fair number of varied entrees on the menu for larger appetites.

Lobster Puffs with Remoulade Sauce

Crispy Shrimp and Calamari with Fresh Herbs

Oven Roasted Okra with Meyer Lemons Aoli

Grilled Bacon with Pickled Mustard Seed

The small plates are brought to the table as soon as they are prepared a la tapas style. Executive Chef, John Coleman, aims to serve simply prepared, fresh food sourced from top purveyors with a vibrant combination of flavors and the execution was spot on. Make sure you save room for dessert-they have a menu all to themselves. They come in "minis" priced at one dessert for $3, three for $8 , six for $16 and $24 for ten desserts!

If dining al fresco is your passion, you will have plenty of spots to choose from. Cozy up in the lounge area in the front of the restaurant or choose one of several dining tables on the side facing the park. Wherever you sit, and whatever the weather, Savor is a fantastic choice for dining and drinking!
