Expanding Choice at Savor Brooklyn

Now one of Windsor Place’s newest cafes will be offering a dinner menu in addition to their beloved cup of coffee or marvelous mocha. Savor Brooklyn, at 199 Windsor Place, began to serve dinner last Sunday evening, and where dinner is a glass of wine can’t be far away.

Savor opened last November to a shaky, or shall we say, windy beginning, but has since established itself as a place to warm up and enjoy the nice view behind the café’s over-sized front windows while sitting back with a wonderful hot beverage.

Until owner Helen Traversi organizes a regular fixed menu she will be offering a rotating selection of special plates with an emphasis on pasta. On Sunday patrons had a choice of either Bolognese sauce or penne with mushrooms. As for a heavier fare, pork tenderloin with roasted peppers was also available.

Savor also now has a beer and wine license. Traversi would like to create a wine list which is small but well-chosen, with three white varieties and three red. Cava, a type of sparkling wine, will also appear on the list. As for the beer, Traversi is looking forward to pleasing her patrons, and is inviting them to visit Savor’s Facebook page to vote for their favorite beer that comes bottled.
