Savor is Manchester’s coffee house and cafe. Conveniently located inside the Corrugated Box Building on the corner of West 7th St and Porter St., the cafe is open on the weekdays at 7:30 am to 5:30 pm for breakfast, lunch and take home dinners. Chef owner Ellie Basch has been in Richmond food scene since 2002 with her catering company Everyday Gourmet. Her cuisines are often described as “light, fresh and flavorful”, thanks to her aptitude in using herbs and spices as a result of growing up in the Spice Islands of Indonesia.
With its bright, airy and mod design in an industrial setting, several customers have commented that Savor reminds them of NYC’s Meatpacking district. Manchester’s urban landscape certainly would transport our customers to lower Manhattan, but the Savor’s commitment to using local produce and food products is decidedly Virginian, while the commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Visitors and Richmond residents can include culture, art and education on 4th Friday. A variety of new shows, mediums and learning potential open on July 25, 2008.
Plant Zero at Artspace opens featuring artists from Plant Zero.
The Human Form at 12 12 Gallery continues. Local artists Joelle Francht and Mike Keeling join New York’s Nancy Fairchild and Cleveland’s Nancy McEntee to interpret The Human Form. The exhibition runs through Sunday, July 27th.
