The Savant Project

Last weekend, Benny hosted a tasting for his new restaurant, the Savant Project. He's in the middle, his business partner, Luis, is in the foreground, and Isaac, the executive chef, is busily preparing plates in the background. Benny has been wanting to open a lounge as long as I've known him. I remember wandering into his dorm room in Lyon freshman year, and, with a set of turn tables, ambient lighting, a killer sound system, and a small crowd of students, he had something pretty close to a lounge going right then and there. Now, 9 years later, the real thing is about to open. Any of you in the Longwood area should check it out. It's located where the Solstice Cafe used to be.
