Black Lion (Shavi Lomi) presents a certain naïve, simple, but conceptual cuisine; an interesting correlation of spices and taste arranged on your plate: green millet, vegetarian stew, kohlrabi sauce. Chef Meriko Gubeladze adds color, character, vividness, and intrigue to the Georgian cuisine. Take pleasure from fascinating improvisations of Georgian dishes in the company of vivid conversation.
The restaurant is an homage to Georgia’s favorite artist, Niko Pirosmani, a naive painter whose favorite subjects were animals, a singer named Margarita and feast scenes.
The foodie revolution in Tbilisi started in 2011, when young Georgian chef Meriko Gubeladze opened her fusion restaurant Black Lion (Shavi Lomi).
