NOMU Restaurant LLC is an idea that was born by Chef Mark Scharaga. The concept is based on the idea that a restaurant can offer impeccable menus with innovative cuisine, but still be responsible to the environment. Chef Mark envisions a dining experience that features only sustainable seafood, local and regional ingredients, and is eco friendly in many other aspects. The menu will feature a wide array of options from ceviche, poke, sashimi, sushi, and tartare. All of our herbs will be grown in hydroponic environments. We will offer a fruit infused sweet tea, a healthier alternative to traditional sweet tea. The goal is to show creativity while offering something back to our planet.
Chef Mark's goal is to seek harmony with nature and our natural resources by using recycled plastics, woods, metals, and etc to form an interesting aesthics for the restaurant. So not only are you eating cuisine that is good for our resources, but the whole restaurant is focused on minimizing its environmental impact. I know this model can be successful and show other restaurant owners the value in respecting our resources. WE need YOUR help in raising the money to launch the concept.
