Sabi – Carouge, Switzerland
In July 2022 Sabi opened it’s doors for the first time in Carouge, Switzerland (just next to Geneva).
Antoine Nouais, is the chef and co-founder. His philosophy is that he wants to feed his customers in the same way he would want to feed his own family. When buying at home, he would only want to buy seasonal produce that he knew the origin of, be it vegetables, wine, chocolate, or coffee. Antoine feels that his customers should be treated in the same way, with transparency and respect. Only the best produce is served.
The restaurant takes a lot of inspiration from South East Asian, Japanese, and South Korean cuisine. At Sabi they love dishes that have ‘pep’, a strong personality, acidity, freshness, and spice! The menu changes regularly, and Antoine is constantly researching and getting inspired by new techniques to use in his food.
Of course, Antoine isn’t alone; he has a great team of motivated and creative individuals. One of which is Louis Rafii, the sommelier at Sabi, who takes his time finding the best natural wines to pair with Antoine’s cuisine. Their wine list is more than impressive, with fan favorites and some hard-to-find gems.
If you haven’t had a chance yet, Sabi is definitely worth a visit; find it on Raisin now.
