MOMMI is a new Japanese-Latin restaurant situated in the heart of Clapham. The venue and food draws inspiration from the vibrancy of Miami, the eclecticism of a beach in Venice, the rhythms of South America and the refinement of Japan. MOMMI brings together a festival of potent flavours in one unique destination restaurant.
The utmost attention to detail has gone into creating a singularly fluid dining experience; from drinks to dinner to the dance floor, leading visitors to take a step beyond the familiar.
With interiors by Mister Important Design, the studio strived to mirror the offering with a distinctly rough yet elegant urban street style, thoroughly rooted in the cities the cuisine draws upon. Colourful and surprising custom design elements include the banquettes, chandeliers, custom articulated lights, full length communal seating and more intimate dining tables with chairs by Four Hands.
The space features an exposed kitchen and large back bar with sconces by Hubbarton Forge; a DJ with exclusive music, as well as custom designed communal and intimate dining spaces and a hostess stand by the designers to welcome patrons.
The interior is graced with large scale artwork from two notable artists who worked closely with Mister Important Design. Ben Watts is a well known fashion photographer and published collagist whose work celebrates street life from London, Los Angeles, Miami and beyond. His large scale wall collage spans three walls in the rear dining area.
RONE is an internationally renowned Melbourne-based street artist whose work can be seen worldwide. His more subtle mural across the brickwork provides the backdrop to the front bar area, complemented with lighting by Rejuvenation domed pendants and Arteriors table lamps.
Music is also a key part of the MOMMI experience – with exclusive MOMMI playlists curated by co-founder of music festival Lovebox, Ross Clarke. Specialist DJs take up residence, playing mixes filled with trademark Latin DNA. The music, like the food and the interior is lively, curated and unique.
