Savi Provisions Now Open in Downtown Decatur

What’s the extent of their food and drink offerings?  Here are the details from Savi’s press release…

One stop shopping just became even savvier with the opening of Savi Provisions, an Atlanta owned neighborhood destination selling locally sourced gourmet and organic foods, fine wines, craft beers and now spirits too in Decatur. Now open on the corner of W Ponce de Leon Ave and Commerce Drive (former home to Cook’s Warehouse) this is the sixth Savi Provisions in the metro area and the first to offer spirits as well as a deli counter and fresh flowers.

“I am very excited about our new Decatur store,” said Paul Nair, CEO and founder of Savi Provisions. “This location has a heavier focus on food service and prepared items such as grain bowls and made-to-order salads. We are excited about our deli counter and sidewalk style seating along Ponce. Plus, our wine, beer and spirits set this location apart from our other Savi stores.”

Comprised of 4,200 square feet and 1000 square feet of spirit section, Savi Provisions is open seven days a week and features complimentary parking on-site in the parking lot behind the store just off of Commerce Drive. Prepared food includes tasty sous vide items, as well as freshly prepared grab-n-go meals. Guests can also order from a gourmet menu and enjoy a meal on-site or take it with them.

The market offers more grocery items to choose from than current locations and the Savi menu includes breakfast options such as omelets, Chia Seed bowls, biscuits, bagels and croissants, as well as breakfast burritos, sandwiches and weekend brunch. A few lunch highlights include the Quinoa Super Food Bowl, a Simple Salad and Wild Mushroom Tart, and tempting sandwiches such as a grilled cheese with three cheeses on sourdough bread with tomato soup and a shaved prime rib French Dip complete with horseradish mayo and porcini au jus on French bread. Savi sides will round out any meal and tinier taste-buds will be able to enjoy items from the kids menu.

Fine wines, artisan beers and spirits are also be available for off premise consumption. The market retails over 2,000 SKU of wines and beers all hand selected from domestic and international wine makers and local, national and international craft beers.
