About the restaurant
Shaya restaurant marries Israeli staples with Southern flavors and modern techniques, striking a balance between innovation and tradition. Shaya approaches Israeli cuisine as a grand mosaic, drawing influence and inspiration from North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Turkey and Greece. The contemporary menu reflects the ongoing evolution of Israeli food and celebrates the abundance of Louisiana. Shaya highlights seasonal, responsibly- and locally-sourced ingredients.

The wood-fire oven is central to both the menu and the dining experience, from the incredible homemade, wood-fired pita to vegetable-centric small plates and heartier entrees. Many of the dishes on the diverse menu are meant to be shared and enjoyed throughout many courses.

Our party of five enjoyed our repeat visit to this unique and always terrific jewel of a dining experience. Kudos to Oscar, who manned the Pita oven and turned our hot, freshly baked and mouthwatering watering Pitas.

I live in the neighborhood, and Saj continues to exceed my expectations in every way. The quality of the food is top-notch. The entrees from the excellently prepared fish to chicken are excellently prepared. The salads are fresh and delicious and enough to share with a group. But you could come just for the Saj bread, the large, paper thin flavorful flatbread is so good. Dip it in the their honey-glazed baked feta or goat cheese appetizer for even more flavor. Also the BYOB option makes the restaurant a great value. Just bring your favorite bottle of wine! Also the service was fantastic.

About the restaurant
Tavi is an Israeli restaurant serving made-to-order pita from a wood-fired oven, elaborately finished hummus plates, and small and large plates drawing from the same modern Israeli inspiration as its sister restaurant, Shaya. The name Tavi is inspired by the Hebrew word meaning “good or beloved” and that’s what Tavi aims to deliver to the Covington community. Executive Chef Fariz Choumali leads the kitchen and brings his Lebanese Roots to life through staples from the Shaya menu plus new dishes. The menu will highlight an array of small plates, hummus, sandwiches, and slow-roasted meats.

About the restaurant
Take a seat at our signature French-inspired bistro, Couvant, housed in the former Peychaud Cocktail Bitters factory. Here, French techniques (think pain perdu for breakfast and cochon de lait for dinner) play on the roots of New Orleans cuisine using fresh, local ingredients.

New Orleans is renowned for its French cuisine, and you won’t have to leave the confines of The Eliza Jane to enjoy delicious fare within a French bistro.

Couvant specializes in classic French cooking serving entrees that pay homage to French history and regional specialties. Never pretentious, the dishes and service at Couvant are purposefully simple and social. Nestle into an intimate dining room banquette. Or dine at a bistro table in our historic courtyard for chef-driven entrées and a bottle of wine — or maybe two.

Both the food and the drinks were excellent. We like that we can choose the level of spice--we were conservative and ordered two dishes medium (cashew chicken and red curry) and one mild-medium (garlic beef--can't remember the exact name). We would definitely go with medium or possibly even try the next higher level for one of the dishes next time (we do like spicy food). Joe, our waiter, was very helpful and pleasant. We'll definitely go again.
