Taking a break

This year, Chef Omar Anani of Detroit’s Saffron De Twah was nominated for a James Beard Award and also made an appearance on the Food Network’s “Chopped.” A recent facebook post reads: “Chef Omar needs to take some personal time to focus on his physical well-being, mental health, family, and strengthening Saffron De Twah and the Saffron Community Kitchen. Chef Omar will be taking a six-month sabbatical.” The restaurant will be closed until March 15, 2024. During the closure, it is recommended that patrons check the eatery’s website for pop-ups and limited catering.
