Savoy To Open in North Raleigh

A new French restaurant, Savoy, is apparently scheduled to open this coming Saturday in North Raleigh on Lead Mine Road. They’re located in the old Fins space, and their reasonably-priced menu looks fairly promising. Savoy has two chefs, Pete Gibson and Marshall Smith, who are brothers (and their father is a pastry chef, too!), and both of whom have been around the block a bit in the Raleigh dining scene. Gibson previously cooked at the ill-fated Savannah and the underrated Bistro 607 and Smith headed up Michael Dean’s kitchen. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with this new place and whether the North Raleigh crowd will support it.

    They are not brothers.

    They are brothers. I know because I’m their mother. They grew up together – cooked at home together – and now own a restaurant together.

    The last time they worked together was at Bistro 607 in 2003. While Marshall was at New England Culinary Institute, he did a 6 month intership at 607 and worked with Pete, And, they both worked in the Savoie (Savoy) region of France – with Jean-Michel Bouvier at Restaurant L’Essential in Chambery – four years apart.

    I ate at Savoy a week or so ago and I loved it. It is my new favorite restaurant.
