“serving authentic Persian cuisine”
Since opening their doors in April of 2001, the Chefs at Saffron's Restaurant have been serving authentic Persian cuisine in a cozy atmosphere with excellent service. Every dish we prepare is made fresh daily with quality ingredients. This Mediterranean delight can be found tucked away on market street in the middle of downtown Louisville. Only blocks away from the Center for the arts, as well as Actors theatre and the new KFC Yum Center. Warm and cozy in ambiance, with an equally warm and attentive service team. Guests will be pleasantly surprised upon entering one of Louisville's favorite places to dine. Saffron (pronounced /ˈsæfrɒn/) is a spice derived from the flower of the saffron crocus (Crocus sativus), a species of crocus in the Iridaceae. A C. sativus flower bears three stigmas, each the distal end of a carpel. Together with their styles—stalks connecting stigmas to their host plant—stigmas are dried and used in cooking as a seasoning and colouring agent. Saffron, long the world's most expensive spice by weight, is native to Southwest Asia. Saffron's bitter taste and an iodoform- or hay-like fragrance result from the chemicals picrocrocin and safranal. A carotenoid dye, crocin, allows saffron to impart a rich golden-yellow hue to dishes and textiles.
