THE QUALITY OF THE RAW MATERIALS, AS WELL AS AUTHENTICITY AND SIMPLICITY IS AT THE HEART OF THE PHILOSOPHY OF GEM 42 RESTAURANT.
"The real Heroes in our Restaurant are the Ingredients" Chef Sergio.
With a view that beauty lies in simple things. What we can offer, is what we learned from the past, where you take the best of cooking and keep improving using culinary vanguard approach and techniques that simply evaluate your perception of food. Some of the dishes are unique in flavours and culinary concept. We are living in an era where modern technology is bringing a revolution beyond any imagination. For modern society people eating, is no longer what satiates or keeps alive, but something that brings enjoyment to the senses. The excellent relationship we have built with suppliers and joint passion for their commitment to animal welfare and top quality produce are crucial to the high standards that we strive for.

"If you remember me.
Then I don't care if everyone else forgets"
Avant-gardes visual on produce, both coarse and fine, ancient and modern, always keeping an eye on sustainability, leaving the hills that bring forth the good fruit to flourish. Rather than chasing the novel for its own sake, every effort is put into exploring the ancient practices – drying, fermenting, salting and smoking. At 42 we follow the seasons and what they bring forth, transforming ancient culinary tradition into modern delicacies.
