Omnivore - The SAGA is over ...
Perhaps the Southern cuisine of America doesn't blend so well with that of Africa. SAGA in Midtown â€” chef Drew Van Leuvan's brainchild that mixed modern Southern dishes with South African ones â€” has closed.
This curious mix â€” the name stands for South Africa Georgia â€” may have proved too much so, although the restaurant's answering machine promises "an exciting new concept" from the owners, with more information coming in late summer.
