Savvor Restaurant & Lounge, a Caribbean and Southern restaurant (and lounge), will open in the Leather District this Saturday, February 8th, in the former District Restaurant and Lounge space, according to a Facebook post. UpStairs on the Square alum Carey Dobies will head up the kitchen.
Owner Francois Firmin (of the shuttered Blue Wave) originally told the licensing board that Savvor "would be geared to customers in their early 30s to mid 50s seeking Southern food and small plates in a lounge atmosphere." A neighborhood tipster writes in to share the hope that Firmin will stick to that plan. "We don't need a club," writes the tipster. "Life has been good since District went away, but we can always use more small plates."
