Restaurant-owner Clémence Gommy recently opened her restaurant Gomi, Maison Méditerranéenne in Paris 2nd arrondissement, between Grands Boulevards and Sentier.
While waiting to be able to welcome her patrons in her brand-new restaurant, Gomi dishes filled with Southern sun are available in delivery and takeaway.
And, despite the closure of the dining room, Clémence Gommy lays out her buffet every day – where everything looks mouthwatering – for patrons coming to collect their takeaway dishes.
Gomi decoration signed by architect Pablo Goury makes us think of vacations in Greece, sometimes a long-time memory for some people… Whitewash and white cement, pink marble, earthenware and arbor adorn Gomi. As for tableware (to discover when the restaurant reopens to the public), it has been bargain-hunted at Emmaüs. Gomi will eventually open for lunch, brunch (on Saturdays), and in the afternoon for a snack.
Gomi provides Mediterranean flavors. The menu – including a lot of roasted vegetables changes every three months. At the moment, roasted sweet potatoes with spices, delicious spring carrots with honey and cinnamon served with lemony yogurt, a very tasty pairing, or even leeks with miso, feta cheese and hazelnuts. A Mediterranean revisited and very delicious version of the French bistro’s staple leeks with vinaigrette.
Other vegetable-based recipes and tabouleh complete the buffet.
To pair vegetables, Gomi serves revisited deviled eggs, as well as ponzu beef tataki with fresh cilantro. The meat is extremely tender and perfectly seasoned.
if you are more into seafood, you can enjoy fish keftas.
There are only dishes to eat cold. A very good idea as long as eating on spot is not allowed. But you are sure the taste is not altered during delivery time or when you come to collect your order.
As for desserts, it is hard to choose. Everything looks delicious. We decide to set our hearts on madeleines flavored with zaatar and rose syrup. A little wonder. But cookies, browkie, the Basque cheesecake and the lemon Basboussa were highly tempting as well.
Gomi is inspired by Greece, Lebanon, and even Tunisia, where spices are given pride of place. To this, chef Clémence Gommy mixes a few Japanese twists and Northern techniques.
Gommy has thoroughly selected ingredient sourcing: fresh, seasonal, French for most of them, and even local when possible.
While we are waiting to be able to seat at Gomi, let us enjoy the restaurant dishes at home.
Treat yourself while thinking about your inner wellbeing because Gomi cuisine is indulging and mostly healthy.
