Savor is first and foremost a place to educate students in the culinary arts. Operated by the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), Savor functions as a full-service teaching restaurant where students learn and hone their skills while working with professional chefs, restaurateurs, and teachers. From its compact interior and modest storefront, the renovated space showcases the heart of the restaurant—its teaching kitchen—and its talented student-chefs. The space is organized by a 50-foot-long glowing overhead canopy that unifies exterior and interior spaces, leading the eye from the outside patio through the main dining room and back to the kitchen. Warmly lit spaces create an inviting environment in which to experience the culture of food.
