CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) -Chef Dante Boccuzzi has begun construction on his newest restaurant concept, Goma, on the corner of East 4th Street and Prospect Avenue.

Despite the bleak winter likely ahead for most restaurants, Boccuzzi is moving forward with the plans he announced before the pandemic hit.

Goma will be a sushi restaurant--similar to his Tremont establishment, Ginko--but on a larger scale.

Renderings released to 19 News show a large sushi bar in the center of the space, formerly occupied by Chef Zach Bruell’s Italian restaurant, Chinato.

The space has been empty since Chinato shuttered its doors back in May of 2019.

There are also plans for a communal table, traditional tables and high backed booths with a clear barrier in between that reach the ceiling.

Boccuzzi is also planning for a Speakeasy bar in the lower level of the space.
