CLEVELAND — Dante Boccuzzi, the celebrated local chefs behind such Northeast Ohio eateries as DANTE, DBA, Dante's Inferno, Dante Next Door, and Ginko, is set to open Goma this summer at Pinecrest.

Goma is a new Japanese fusion concept which will showcase an extensive collection of sushi rolls and shareable plates. You will also be able to take advantage of a large sake menu complete with sake-infused cocktails. 

The menu draws upon Boccuzzi’s worldwide award-winning culinary career, which includes serving as executive chef at Nobu/Milan, where he worked directly with Nobu Matsuhisa and Giorgio Armani at the Armani flagship establishment.

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

Goma is expected to open this summer and will be open daily for lunch and dinner. In addition to the main dining area, the restaurant will feature an outdoor patio and rentable space for private events.

The addition of Goma continues the impressive growth of Pinecrest, located right off the Harvard Road exit of I-271 in Orange Village. The complex offers apparel, home and specialty stores, chef-driven restaurants and entertainment venues. In addition, Pinecrest is home to a boutique hotel, contemporary apartments and Class A office space.
