SaVor Bistro’s Background
SaVor Bistro will focus on the classics of European cuisine. Chef Romer Sanchez — from Venezuela — will explore the sunnier climes of the continent, focusing on dishes from Spain, Italy, and France.
The menu will focus on some of the most famous dishes from each of the countries. From France, dishes like creme brûlée, onion soup, and filet mignon with bearnaise. Three different octopus preparations and, of course, paella, hails from Spain. Pasta and risotto round off the Italian-inspired portion of the menu. The common thread between all the food is that everything is made from scratch with fresh, organic ingredients. No cans or mixes will stock the kitchen shelves.
Fitting the elegant cuisine, the interior is crisp and contemporary. Marble tables and bright white walls bounce light from the many windows, creating an upscale but approachable vibe.
I was one of the lucky few who were invited to a taste testing of this new Bistro, and I can easily say I was blown away. Beautiful dinning area/environment, and its topped off with an outstanding chef bringing some exotic new flavors to Stone Oak. First time trying a few things for me, in which I easily fell in love. I can not wait until this place finally opens up as I plan on being a regular! If you ever get the chance this place is a must-try in San Antonio!
