Diners in Geneva are no longer into big, heavy meals. The latest trend to blow over from trendier world cites is to go out, drink cocktails and order several small plates among friends to share! We like!

 

A much more interesting, healthy, affordable and sociable way of eating.

 

GENEVA BANG ON TREND WITH SMALL PLATES

 

As of this week (June 7th 2018) Geneva has a restaurant and cocktail lounge which is bang on trend: Eat Me Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge in Eaux Vives introduces the concept of “World on small plates” to Geneva.

The idea is to take diners on a culinary adventure of international cuisine served on small plates designed for sampling and sharing.

Serena Shamash, founder of Eat Me wanted to create a culinary experience of discovery based on her love of food and travel.

 

‘As an avid traveler, my most vivid recollections of my journeys are often the food that I sampled — the exciting flavours that represent the spirit of a city or a culture,’ explains Serena.

 

‘This was the inspiration behind the concept – the idea of capturing and sharing food souvenirs from around the world…’

The food is served on small plates in an atmosphere designed for sharing and discovery.

‘We want to bring people together, and what better way for people to connect than over food? So, we have tried to create a convivial environment for sharing,’ says Serena.

‘Serving our recipes on small plates makes it easy for guests to taste many different dishes, to explore new combinations of ingredients, and to make new discoveries together.’

 

 

 

 

THE MENU

With food from four different geographic regions, Eat Me’s menu tempts guests with a colourful diversity of dishes such dishes such as the “Nikkei Market,” a ceviche of lobster done in the Peruvian-Japanese style of cuisine, and the “Harissa Chop House,” Middle Eastern-inspired grilled lamb chops served with a homemade harissa sauce. The menu also includes re-interpretations of classics like beef tartare, which the chef prepares with Eat Me’s secret recipe.

 

 

 

 

CREATIVE COCKTAILSEat Me Restaurant Geneva

Beyond the food, Eat me also has an artistic cocktail program that follows the same philosophy as the food – combining spirits from around the world with fresh ingredients and house-made infusions.

The bar tenders have created culinary cocktails that reflect the character of the region that inspired them, including drinks such as the “The Black Pearl,” a cocktail of rum spiced with cardamom and ginger, and the “Andalusia,” a gin libation made with rosemary, pepper and topped with a spicy chorizo chip.

 

 

OUR VERDICT:

We will be testing Eat Me on June 7th – watch this space!

 

WHO IS SERENA?

Serena is a Kenyan of Indian ethnicity and has been lucky enough to have lived and traveled in many parts of the world. The idea of sampling and sharing “food souvenirs” came from the Serena’s experiences meeting interesting people from all over the globe and learning about their foods and their cultures.

She opened the doors of the first Eat Me in Lausanne in March 2013.
