New charm coming to the Heights
Savior is a new restaurant coming to the Heights in November. Owner Brain Doke has been in the restaurant industry for many years. According to CultureMap, he spent eight years as the director of operations for Tiny Boxwood’s, and after that consulted both Relish Restaurant & Bar and Chapman & Kirby.
When he found a warehouse on the corner of Yale and 14th Street, he knew it would be the perfect spot for his restaurant. The space will feature three coordinated sections, the bar, the dining area, and what Doke calls the Garden Room. The latter will feature a long glass and metal wall that can be opened when nice weather arrives.
As reported by CultureMap the cuisine will be chef driven, seasonally focused, modern American with European focus.
