Sav's Grill & West African Cuisine

Growing up in Guinea, Mamadou Savané—"Sav" to his family and friends—loved watching his sisters prepare family meals. He learned to cook himself, and, after marrying a Peace Corps volunteer, packed up his recipes and moved to Lexington. The change of scenery continued to fuel Sav's culinary passion, inspiring him to open Sav's Grill & West African Cuisine. Here, he combines Southern specialties with the traditional food of his youth to create a unique dining experience.

Visitors to Sav's find a wealth of global flavors at their finger- and fork-tips. Simmering stews arrive loaded with savory chunks of local goat meat, eggplant, and potatoes, and plantain-based fufu rounds out plates. Besides West African classics, Sav whips up a few staples of Southern American cooking, such as pork ribs with sides of cheesy grits. A locally roasted blend of Ethiopian, Mexican, and Brazilian coffees can complement feasts, which unfold in a casual space adorned with paintings of African landscapes.
