Saba is Pomegranate Hospitality's flagship restaurant. Meaning Grandfather in Hebrew, Saba is open 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 will soak up the flavors of Bulgaria, Yemen, Syria, Morocco, Turkey, Palestine and Greece to name a few. Chef de Cuisine Cara Peterson will 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.
