You can't help fall in love with Claudia Johnson, co-owner and chef of Savory @ Night. While we sat around sipping on our wine and enjoying dishes from their new menu, Claudia is teaching us the history of where these amazing creations originate from. Watching her express her passion for her heritage is so admirable, even her partner, Jim, can't take his eyes off of her. The authenticity of these dishes are simply undeniable. The levels of flavors that hit your palate at different times is so pleasantly surprising with each bite.
We started our culinary feast with a traditional Lentil Soup. This dish was just amazing and you can imagine my surprise when I bit into tiny pieces of pineapple and plantains! So savory and sweet!
Myan Lentil Soup
with plantain and chorizo (vegetarian option available)
Our next course was an amazing Ceviche. The colors and flavors of this traditional dish were equally bursting. Served with mussels in a chorizo and wine reduction making it the perfect pairing. The presentation was a work of art. Simply gorgeous and delicious!
Latin Ceviche and Chorizo Mussels
red snapper, lime juice, Bermuda onions, cilantro, olive oil, sherry vinegar served on a mango Carpaccio
15 mussels served in a white wine and chorizo cream sauce drizzled with cilantro served with our homemade garlic toasted bread
The next plate to hit the table might have been my favorite, if I'm allowed a favorite that is. This "taco" was in a league of it's own. A fresh layer of tuna folded over the Tuna Tartare to create this "taco" feel. Served with all of the goodness one would expect from a taco. Again, the creativity both in flavors and aesthetics is a force to be reckoned with on this one! A must try!

Honestly, I couldn't believe at this point that there was more to come. The big dogs, what we had come here for...the Main Event! The Lobster, Steak, Mahi-Mahi, Pork and Seafood Fidebua! Each of these main dishes were in their own right, the star of the show. The were so delicious and offering such unique flavors! I couldn't stop myself it was so damn good!

This was certainly a feast not to be missed! Savory @ Night has unleashed these new menu items and I highly encourage you to go and try them TONIGHT and every night!
