Dee and Bernie















Dee and Bernie are the owners of Saveur, a wonderful restaurant in Santa Fe, NM, which they have owned for the last 7 years. Prior to that they had been retired for eight years after retiring from another Sante Fe restaurant that had previously kept them quiet busy. Retirement and volunteering did not satisfy them so they embarked on Saveur, which has been a resounding success. To keep a more balanced life, the restaurant is closed on week=ends, and they take an annual month long European vacation to visit French villages, bistros and other unique places . Both of them are personable hosts who take very good care of their guests. I felt very much at home, visiting with them and listening to their stories.

  3. Our favorite restaurant in Scottsdale is closed on Sundays, but I had never heard of a restaurant closed on Saturdays. Good for them to achieve their preferred work-life balance.

  6. This is the recipe for a successful business don't you think Kate.. Unstressed chef, happy customers. We have a similar French cafe that I love and they do exactly the same.. I like the way the French think :)

  8. Good for them! It's a challenge not to be, uhm, eaten alive by owning a restaurant. Glad that they've found a balance.
