It's no secret that all the söpö girls are nothing short of obsessed with dining out in our hometown and dream city. Between our love for food and our love for design, we love the ritual of getting ready to go out and selecting the perfectly complimentary ensemble to our restaurant of choice.
It's only natural that Shaya is the muse of our inaugural söpöeats column. Between the fluffy and surprisingly savory standard pita bread, to the outdoor patio that mimics the mediterranean villa of your dreams, this uptown oasis of avant-garde Israeli cuisine has heart, soul, and serious flavor.
We love Carolina K's printed voile maxi (2.) as a stunning contrast to the patio's striking orange-and-white palette; the breezy silhouette and the bare shoulders will make you feel like you're spending a weekend in Greece. Local designer Ella West's hand-dipped enamel and steel accessories (1.) echo the somewhat hand-hewn beauty of Shaya's dishes. Take along a pair of Krewe du Optic's Louisa Sunglasses (3.) for sunny summer evening glare protection along with a side of uptown New Orleans street cred.
