Sommba Cocina & Cellar Opening January 31st in Mount Pleasant
The culinary, wine, and beverage team behind Mount Pleasant’s SAVI Cucina + Wine Bar on Friday announced that their new concept Sommba Cocina & Cellar will open to the public on Tuesday, January 31st.
Co-founders – and husband-and-wife team – Ty Raju and Karen Mennuti-Raju say their new restaurant’s menu features an “extensive wine list, complemented by handcrafted cocktails, and a variety of flavorful small plates inspired by the European coastline and islands off of Spain, Italy, and France.”
Culinary Director Michael Semancik, Executive Chef Jordan Aldrich, and Executive Pastry Chef Jason Sturdevant will lead the Sommba kitchen which will create small plates like Octopus a la Plancha, Mussels Taranto, and Garlic Lowcountry Shrimp. Guests will also find classic Spanish tapas like Lamb Meatballs, Patatas Bravas, and Valencia Paella, as well as a unique take on queso with their Manchego and Mahon Fondue. Full dinner service will be available inside the restaurant as well as on the patio as seasonal weather allows.
With an award-winning wine and beverage team, including co-founder and Certified Somm Ty Raju, as well as Certified Somm and Beverage Director Emerson Ewald, Sommba’s team says their wine and cocktail offerings will be a key focal point of the restaurant. Inspired by this Somm-led team, guests will be able to try 20+ sommelier-selected wines by the glass, 350+ bottles from Sommba’s wine cellar, and signature craft cocktails made with coastal-inspired ingredients.
Additionally, Sommba will welcome and extend privileges to members of SAVI’s innovative “one size fits one” SAVI Society Wine Club, led by Somm and BENE Wine Club Director Makayla Woodford, so its members can enjoy their wines at either concept.
Sommba Cocina & Cellar will initially be open Tuesday through Sunday at 4 pm, with happy hour until 6 pm. Guests are encouraged to check their website for any seasonal adjustments to operating hours.
Sommba is located in Indigo Square at 1710 Shoremeade Road off Highway 17 in Mount Pleasant, across from the new REI.
