There's a brand new restaurant in Canton, OH (where I went to high school and I still live near), it's called Savor, and it was opened by my cousin's husband. But let me just start off this review by saying: my opinions are not colored by that fact. All of my opinions are genuine and true (and I received nothing for writing this review-I just want to share my love of Savor!)their website explains it best:
"You deserve to taste the food the way nature intended it to be, free from hormones, chemicals and additives - foods in their purest of forms and homemade dishes with the simplest of ingredients. We source ingredients from local farms and farmers markets with local, organic meats and produce. This not only insures you with the freshest, healthiest options but also helps our local economy. We are a community driven, and look forward to serving delicious food curated in alignment with the farm-to-table movement."
Uh yeah, even if this wasn't family I would have been obsessed with Savor, it's everything that I love and want! Real, natural, GOOD food!

Now let's chat about the food. The menu was full of SO MANY THINGS that I wanted to try (including hand-crafted whole wheat pastas and pizzas) and is seasonal, so some changes will be made to it as the seasons change and such. Our entire table started the night off with what they called a BFM (Big Friendly Meatball? Big Fun Meatball? somethin...) that is a giant meatball stuffed with mozzarella and IT WAS PHENOM. Oh guys...best meatball of my life. They also brought everyone out a basket of whole grain rolls and some incredible black garlic butter to spread on them. Fun fact: I've been dying to try black garlic. Thank you, Tim, for making this possible for me.
Michael ordered their most basic pizza (largely because I was debating if I wanted to get it so he was kind enough to share)-it features buffalo mozzarella, roma tomatoes, and basil. It was really great. Michael is usually meh about whole wheat but the crust had a nice texture and hint of sweetness. And when we prepared to take the leftovers home, they even brought us a little pizza box!
Suffice it to say...everyone loved their food. And was insanely full.
Buuut...I mean...I had to get dessert. Savor uses Mitchell's ice cream (all natural, handcrafted ice cream out of Cleveland that I already knew that I loved) and serves a deconstructed ice cream sandwich using gluten-free chocolate cookies. I could choose between vegan chocolate ice cream or roasted pistachio. I'd heard a lot about the pistachio so I decided to give it a try. Impressions: the ice cream was so creamy and wonderful. Pistachio might not be my fave but that's ok...it was still good. And THE COOKIES-so chocolatey. So so so good.
I was a happy Kayle :)
And our waitress, Kirsten, was the cutest and sweetest! Everyone was so nice and helpful and Savor got packed pretty quickly but was still super comfortable and it was just an amazing night. I can't wait to go back! And if you're ever in the Canton, Ohio area...check them out!
