So different from any other restaurant in New Orleans and one of my favorite spots to go on date night with my husband. The atmosphere at the bar is bubbling and between the diners at the bar or sitting in a romantic banquette, this place is full of energy and amazing Middle Eastern food by James Beard Award Chef Alon Shaya.
Saba is Pomegranate Hospitality's flagship restaurant. Meaning Grandfather in Hebrew, Saba is located in Uptown New Orleans, reflecting chef Alon Shaya's heritage, a journey through food and beverage which pays homage to the culinary landscape of Israel. With influences that stem from the Middle East, Europe and North Africa, Saba reflects a collection of moments where food and culture have crossed paths, offering a taste of this ever-evolving cuisine. Wood fired pita bread baked steps from the table soaks up the flavors of Bulgaria, Yemen, Syria, Morocco, Turkey, Palestine and Greece to name a few. Saba aims to source seafood, meats and produce from local farms around New Orleans, guiding them over hot coals to family-style platters on the table. Grandfathers have many stories to tell about a life’s worth of experiences; Saba wants to tell them through food and drink.
