Chef Pouchon Savion was born in Haiti and raised in South Florida by a single mother. His passion for food started when he was a young boy helping his mother cook for the family. Working at Ruby Tuesdays in high school, he followed his passion and continued to become executive chef for the Cheesecake Factory, Brio Tuscan Grille and Seasons 52.
His extensive food knowledge and creativity combined with 20 years of culinary experience led him to open up Savion’s Place in September of 2012. His passion for excellence helped Savion’s Place quickly rise to the top of websites like Trip Advisor, Yelp and Urban Spoon.
In 2014, Savion’s Place was featured on the Cooking Channel’s Emeril’s Florida where he showed us his combination of island zest mixed with modern American flavor and featured some of his dishes, such as; the tostones bowl, pork rib eye, seafood gumbo and jambalaya.
