Saffire owner to open restaurant at Pinnacle

Saffire owner Tomkats Restaurant Group said it plans to open a steakhouse and oyster bar later this year in the Pinnacle at Symphony Place building, 150 Third Ave. S.

The new eatery will be called the Southern, a Tomkats official said.

“It is similar (to Saffire) but it is going to be on a larger scale, with specific dishes from specific regions of the South,” said Gina Hendrix, Tomkats’ restaurant development director. “I don’t want to say upscale, because we want it to be comfortable … upscale food on the plate, but a comfortable atmosphere.”
