Savour fare: coming very, very, very soon

Savour, the new restaurant on Emmet Street in the old Hong Kong Buffet building, will open this month according to chef/owner Ed Nafei. For over a year, Nafaei has been busy renovating the space (as far back as April 2007 he had "soon" written under his handmade sign. See photo left) but now he says he's ready to "introduce himself to Charlottesville." A chef and restaurant owner for 34 years, the Egyptian-born Nafei hopes to bring all that experience to the tables at Savour, which has a menu he calls "eclectic."
