Chama Mama, a place where the magic of gastronomy happens!
One of the most celebrated restaurants in the United States, Chama Mama is an intimate and vertiginous place filled with culture and traditions of ancient Georgia. Full of flavors, colors and history, classic Georgian cuisine is presented here with a modern spin.
Situated at the crossroads of Europe & Asia, Georgia has fallen within the Silk Road orbit of many cultural influences where the foreign ingredients and styles were incorporated into their own. That is why the Georgian cuisine is unique with its rich, extensive interplay of a wide array of tastes.
Toné - large clay oven- is the heart of the Georgian kitchen. We pride ourselves on having built a custom Toné at Chama Mama, where Georgian flavorful bread is baked daily. Our mornings are filled with the most comforting aroma of the freshly baked bread.
Puri is the word for bread in Georgia, which is where Khachapuri, Georgia's famous cheese filled bread, gets its name from! Every region in Georgia has its own version of Khachapuri and we are happy to serve majority of them at Chama Mama! Most famous is Adjaruli Khachapuri, featuring hot lava of cheese and an egg, you’ll have a lot of fun mixing those!
Georgia is famous for its traditional winemaking in the huge clay vessels called Qvevri. The egg-shaped Qvevri is used for making, aging, and storing wine. Our extensive list at Chama Mama is full of natural and organic Georgian wines. We can't wait for you to taste them!
