It’s time to pour a celebratory glass of cava or tempranillo- Mount Pleasant is finally getting a Spanish restaurant. The culinary and beverage team behind upscale Italian eatery SAVI Cucina + Wine Bar is excited to announce their new concept Sommba Cocina & Cellar, a coastal Spanish and Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and wine bar. Opening early November at 1710 Shoremeade Road, Sommba will serve shareable small plates, handcrafted cocktails and an extensive selection of fine wine.

SAVI’s Culinary Director Michael Semancik will be taking the reins of the Sommba kitchen with a fresh, creative menu featuring plays on coastal tapas like Oyster Confit & Pearls, Octopus a la Plancha, Chef’s Daily Crudos and classic tapas like Paella-inspired Saffron Fried Rice. Full dinner service will be available inside the restaurant as well as on the patio.

With an extensive team of wine and beverage experts, including Simon Kaufmann, Advanced Court of Master Sommelier and Emerson Ewald, Beverage Director of SAVI’s award-winning wine program, Sommba’s wine and cocktail offerings will be a key focal point of the restaurant. Inspired by Co-Founder and Certified Sommelier Ty Raju’s vision and guided by Kaufmann and Ewald, guests will be able to savor 20 sommelier-curated wines by the glass, 350 bottles from the cellar and signature craft cocktails while sitting at the wraparound bar in the center of the dining room. SAVI’s innovative “one size fits one” Wine Club, led by Makayla Woodford, will also extend privileges to Sommba, so members can select where they want to enjoy their personally selected wines.
