a truly authentic culinary experience!

 
 

A diverse and joyful menu, a lively, inviting and inclusive environment, and perhaps above all, the dynamically generous hospitality Sava and her team are best known for.


You may remember it, or may have only heard the stories—something about that tiny 23-seat cafe on State Street where the young owner was your waiter, cook, busser, cashier. A little wild, a lot of heart, major chops; she was just a girl… 

That girl was Sava Lelcaj, and her restaurant grew up right along with her. With her unflappable and unstoppable dedication to great food with even greater hospitality, what started as a tiny lunch stop matured into the 300-seat restaurant it is today, a community mainstay and an entrepreneur’s American dream. Where else could an Albanian kid, emigrated to the Bronx at age five, start her own business on grit and
saved tips?

Ten years later, Sava’s is now the flagship of a larger and growing hospitality organization while still serving the community in all the same ways originally intended—with a diverse and joyful menu, a lively, inviting and inclusive environment, and perhaps above all, the dynamically generous hospitality Sava and her team are best known for.

Thank you for being a part of what we love the most; with deepest sincerity, we’re so glad you’re here.
