THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Savu Restaurant Review

: Sleek and modern almost to the brittle point, Savu, the W Atlanta’s full-service restaurant, sits open to the bar, making it vulnerable to noise if the lobby is busy. Chefs come and go at this establishment, but some stability may have arrived in the form of Stacie Vande Wetering, last seen at the now-closed Clubhouse at Lenox Square. Her clever menu starts with a pair of sassy soups; we're especially fond of the corn soup with smoked bacon and a dab of crab meat on top. Dine on salads and intriguing small plates or on main dishes that are priced well below $20. We like the sliders, especially the lamb (although we would have preferred it a little pinker) with minted yogurt and the fried green tomato with apple wood-smoked bacon. The one downer was the black-eyed pea cakes with pickled Georgia white shrimp. Pickled shrimp is a Georgia coastal classic, but this version didn't seem pickled at all and the black-eyed pea cake lacked seasoning. The wine list isn't much, but there are a few good choices that are available by the glass.
