Israeli in Uptown & Riverbend

Israeli-American chef Alon Shaya has a track record of helming one award-winning New Orleans restaurant after another; such is the case with Saba (Hebrew for 'grandfather'). The restaurant serves modern Israeli cuisine reflecting the diverse background of that nation’s citizens. Standouts include blue-crab hummus, fried eggplant, oyster schnitzel and – why not? – caviar and potato chips.
