By this coming summer, Dante Boccuzzi fans will have one more reason to leave the house. The popular chef behind such restaurants as Ginko, Next Door, DC Pasta Company and the eponymous Dante in Tremont will open Goma, a new Japanese fusion concept, at Pinecrest.

“Goma will be a modern Japanese, energetic, engaging experience,” explains Boccuzzi. “This will be represented within the cuisine, the décor and the service. I am very excited to launch my new sushi concept at Pinecrest.”

Japanese for “sesame,” Goma will feature an extensive selection of sushi rolls and shareable plates along with a diverse sake menu populated with sake-based cocktails. Boccuzzi comes by his sushi cred honestly having worked for and with famed fish chef Nobu Matsuhisa while serving as executive chef at Nobu Milan.

When the restaurant opens this summer, it will have seating for approximately 180, plus more on a patio. Goma will be open daily for lunch and dinner.

Eric Louttit, project executive/chief investment officer for Fairmount Properties, said this about the project: “We are thrilled to welcome a new venture from such a highly regarded chef as Dante Boccuzzi, Dante has a wealth of experience working in renowned restaurants worldwide and has accrued a sterling track record of success as a business owner.”

Located in Orange Village, Pinecrest is home to independent eateries like 3 Palms, Condado Tacos and Graeter’s Ice Cream, and national brands like City Works, Firebirds and Next Door (not to be confused with Dante Next Door). Around the corner, hometown favorites like Red Steakhouse and Oak and Embers BBQ will join them.
