What's in a Restaurant Name...

While walking down to DMV to make my little Saabi "all legal", I passed by 115 East De La Guerra and noticed several signs reading "Coming Soon...Restaurant Saffron."

Gets one's mind wandering as to what type of food is going to be served.
Saffron's aroma is often described by connoisseurs as reminiscent of metallic honey with grassy or hay-like notes, while its taste has been noted also as hay-like and somewhat bitter. Saffron also contributes a luminous yellow-orange colouring to foods. Because of the unusual taste and colouring it adds to foods, saffron is widely used in Arab, Central Asian, European, Indian, Iranian, Moroccan and Cornish cuisines. Confectionaries and liquors also often include saffron. Common saffron substitutes include safflower (Carthamus tinctorius, which is often sold as "Portuguese saffron" or "assafroa") and turmeric (Curcuma longa). - Wikipedia
