Sawa’s unique offerings of contemporary Mediterranean and Japanese fusion dishes merge an innovative sushi menu with a memorable ensemble of tapas and entrees. Sawa Restaurant incorporates many of owner Ramzi Zahr’s favorite ideas, including serving rice in a pyramid shape to the doggie menu, but most importantly the progressive concept of westernized Middle Eastern and Japanese cuisines together under one menu.

“When we developed the menu, I did not want to pretend it was authentic. It is a fusion, meant for everyone to enjoy it. Authentic dishes do not allow for creativity and tend to become boring. Sawa’s menu gives us room to grow, change things up, and keep it interesting.”
