Savory Grille – A Vision Unfolding

“The first of all considerations is that our meals shall be fun, interwoven with love and congenial talk, leaving us with a charitable feeling toward the world.”

This quote from Andre Simon nicely sums up our philosophy here at Savory Grille and it is that vision, thought in a constantly evolving state, that has sustained us since we first opened our doors in 1997. Our hope has consistently been to leave our patrons not merely satisfied, but a little better leaving than they were arriving. We view the table as a sort of secular altar – a place where bread is broken and wine is drunk, in order to facilitate a communion of souls and offer the chance to participate in the intricate ballet that is chef, server and client. The patron invests in us, to be sure we invest in each and every guest in a manner dedicated to and defined by our ideals.

We are in this for the long run. The same patient philosophy that guides our personal relationships – our marriage, how we are raising our children, our comportment with staff and our friendships – directly influences our relationships with our guests. In opening our doors, we are inviting you to sit at our table. As students of the romance of food, and all that is entailed in “bring it to the table,” we are in love with the idea of eating well.

It is a very fine romance indeed.It is in every sense a pleasure to serve as your hosts,
