A look inside Savann in Harlem, restaurant opens today

I had the opportunity to taste the cuisine over the weekend at Harlem’s new restaurant, Savann located at 122nd and Frederick Douglass Blvd. I highly recommend this place! The food was very good and the dining area is quite lovely! I tried the Shepard’s Salad, Pan Fried Cheese Rolls, Crab Cakes and Salmon. These items were served buffet style since Savann was entertaining guests, but I was told all these items will be on the menu and more.

While I was there I took a few photos! But you can stop by yourself today June 17 and see for yourself Harlem’s newest restaurant on restaurant row, Savann Turkish Restaurant.

At the end of 2012, HarlemGal Inc first told you about a new Turkish restaurant coming to Harlem called Savann at 2280 Frederick Douglass Blvd between 122nd and 123rd Street. A reader, who is a very reliable source, has given us the heads up, along with photos to prove that Savann will be opening this Monday, June 17 to the public. Savann is holding a soft launch over the weekend, we hear for the residents of 2280 FDB, however as usual, one has to be invited to attend.

After this weekend, Harlemites will have another new restaurant to check out. Stop by Savann Turkish Restaurant in Harlem starting June 17. Take a look at the menu below!

Is Indian cuisine coming to Harlem’s restaurant row?

Frederick Douglass Blvd., aka Harlem’s restaurant row, will soon have a Turkish restaurant through Savann. 2280 FDB will be the address. Then FDB will soon have a dining place that will offer Israeli food at Silvana on 116th Street. Now comes word that Harlem’s restaurant row will be getting a restaurant that serves Indian cuisine at the corner of 114th Street and FDB. Remember where Questan’s was located? That’s were a new restaurant is opening that will serve Indian cuisine. Two reliable sources have come forward to HarlemGal Inc. Plus workers were seen on site tonight and all the permits on the doors outline work is being done for a restaurant. Yippee! I love Indian food! Stay tune…



Savann Turkish Restaurant coming to Harlem, joining restaurant row

The restaurant scene on Harlem’s restaurant row is about to get more diverse. A very reliable source and long time reader passed along some juicy info! Apparently, the sponsor of 2280 Frederick Douglass Condominium, you know the place that was rumored to be in discussion with Busboys and Poets, but passed on sealing the deal with the DC-based chain, has recently signed a lease with the owners of Savann, a turkish restaurant that use to be located on the upper west side. This new Harlem restaurant will keep the same name and the menu will be similar, according to a source on the restaurant side familiar with the lease. Savann will rent part, not all, of the retail/commercial space that is near Harlem Flo.

And stay tune, Savann Turkish Restaurant plans to open in late 2013!
