Critically-acclaimed fine-dining restaurant Nouri opened its doors under the direction of Chef Ivan Brehm, who is now bringing his talents to Colombo.
The Brazilian native has worked in leading kitchens around the world, having been awarded Chef of the Year by the World Gourmet Series in 2015, and leading ‘The Kitchen at Bacchanalia’ to its first Michelin Star.
With a multicultural background that has sculpted his love and passion for food, Brehm has structured a cuisine as eclectic as his own lineage – featuring culinary techniques and inspiration from his experiences across the globe.
His menu at Nouri evokes this global perspective through the fusion of influences from different cultures to produce plates which are both creative and original. Brehm highlights the universal nature of food as he showcases the universal touchpoints in all cuisines, bringing together cultures with his trademark ‘crossroad cooking’. With a list of awards to its name, Nouri just won the Best New Restaurant (Western) 2018 award from the Gourmet and Travel Awards.
