Savann
Upper West Side
Served in a quiet, intimate atmosphere, chef Galip Ozbek’s dishes burst with flavors—pomegranate, cumin and sage—that point to his native Turkey. We couldn’t help but wonder if the chef gets paid by the ingredient: The salad of warm baby spinach is tossed with caramelized pear, grilled zucchini, roasted shiitake mushrooms and peppery deep-fried goat cheese, then accented with a pomegranate dressing. Somehow it all adds up to one tasty result. Pork loin is similarly complex; stuffed with pine nuts, apple and sage, it sits atop creamy sweet-potato puree and bright, fresh peas. Minimalism is not a consideration at Savann—but why should it be?
