THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Savor Restaurant Review: When it opened on a tree-lined boulevard near St. Louis Cathedral, Savor became the It restaurant in town. Everyone was curious about the remodeled mansion. The menu's four sections reflect the culinary traditions of Europe, the Americas, and the Near and Far East; diners may pick and choose as they like. The house makes no claim that the food is fully authentic, certainly, but the renditions continue to mostly delight. They’ve cut back on the seasoning from what was originally offered, some local diners' palates being too timid for the enthusiastic zip. Items like a green papaya salad, sweetbreads roasted with local bacon and mushrooms, Goan seafood curry and Moroccan lamb tagine co-exist warmly with sticky fried rice. Desserts are equally charming. The décor is more Upper East Side than Central West End when it comes to the dining rooms, but the women's lounge upstairs moves right into boisterousness.
