Sabor chef Jason-Paul Febres is eager to return

WICHITA — Venezuela native Jason-Paul Febres says he always knew he would return to Sabor, which he left in February after differences with owner Melad Stephan.

“It’s part of my beginning here in Wichita,” Febres says. “That place, I love it.”

He still wants his own restaurant one day, but Febres says he also hopes to eventually have ownership in Sabor and use successes with a chain of the restaurants to start his own venture.

As for Stephan saying Febres had some growing up to do, Febres says perhaps they both did.

“It’s getting to an agreement,” Febres says. “We both got on the same page.”
