The culinary and beverage team behind Italian eatery SAVI Cucina + Wine Bar today announced their new concept, Sommba Cocina & Cellar, a coastal Spanish and Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and wine bar. Opening in early November at 1710 Shoremeade Road, Sommba will serve shareable small plates, cocktails, and an extensive selection of wine.
SAVI’s Culinary Director Michael Semancik will run the Sommba kitchen with a menu featuring plays on coastal tapas like Oyster Confit & Pearls, Octopus a la Plancha, Chef’s Daily Crudos, and classic tapas like Paella-inspired Saffron Fried Rice. Full dinner service will be available inside the restaurant as well as on the patio.
The wine and beverage team includes Simon Kaufmann, Advanced Court of Master Sommelier, and Emerson Ewald, Beverage Director of SAVI’s award-winning wine program. Sommba’s beverage program is inspired by co-counder and Certified Sommelier Ty Raju’s vision and guided by Kaufmann and Ewald. Guests will be able to choose from 20 sommelier-curated wines by the glass, 350 bottles from the cellar, and a selection of signature craft cocktails.
SAVI’s “one size fits one” Wine Club, led by Makayla Woodford, will also extend privileges to Sommba, so members can select where they want to enjoy their personally selected wines.
