The Culinary Institute of America in San Antonio is reopening its restaurant in San Antonio’s Pearl District. Taking the place of Latin American restaurant Nao, which shuttered after five years, Savor is slated to open January 22, 2019 at 200 East Grayson Street.

Savor has a modern American bent, with three- or four-course dinners including dishes like honey-chili roasted chicken and Berkshire pork schnitzel with a sunny egg. The CIA team plans on partnering with farmers and producers to create rotating dishes with local produce.

There’s also a bar area that will serve snacks like roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts and wings. On the drink menu are a few cocktails, beer, and wine.

Savor is the latest in the CIA restaurant group, which includes a few restaurants in New York and California. CIA students who are working towards their associate’s degrees will prepare and serve Savor’s food, under supervision from culinary and hospitality instructors. Overseeing Savor are Chef Uyen Pham and service instructor Samantha Fletcher.

Savor will be open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday.
