Gorji Restaurant: Staying Small By Thinking Big
Gorji restaurant has new hours, a new menu format, and fewer tables.
5 Tables and New Hours
Tables have been reduced to five to allow more spacing. Dining-In has reopened Thursday through Saturday, starting at 6 pm with the last seating at 8:30 pm. Gorji has decided to continue takeout he specialized in during COVID lockdown. Takeout is available from 5-7 pm Tuesday through Saturday.
New Mediterranean Cuisine: New Prix Fixe Only Menu
The new menu format is a three-course prix fixe menu only. It changes weekly, taking advantage of local ingredient availability in the market on Gorji’s daily shopping trips. It features his signature New Mediterranean Cuisine with dishes such as lamb brain paté, pulled rabbit and seafood paella, trout yogurt, as well as championship steak and sustainable seafood. The menu consists of an entrée plus appetizer, salad, or dessert with two or three options in each category. Dining-in is $99 plus tax only, and takeout is $83 plus tax only. Gorji has been a no-tipping restaurant since 2016.
