Zama Interior Rendering

Zama Coming to Gaslamp Quarter

Zama, a tropical escape serving up Latin American cuisine with a twist, is set to open at Gaslamp Quarter in September. The new eatery is brought to San Diego by the restaurant group known for RustiCucina and Breakfast & Bubbles.

Zama Gaslamp Quarter will focus on Latin American cuisine with Peruvian and Mexican dishes in a jungle-inspired interior. Diners can expect to enjoy the likes of carpaccio, agua chile and tartare and a Japanese-inspired sushi bar from ​​Chef Tayuka Kudo (formerly of Nobu and Lumi).

The beverage program also pulls from the tropical atmosphere, with a menu of cocktails featuring pineapple, mango and guava. Zama will play tropical, new tango and Argentinian sounds aiding its seamless transformation to an evening destination. Lush and alluring from the atmosphere to its offerings, Zama is set to attract San Diego‘s evening crowd.

Zama is designed by Tucker Sadler Architects. The tropical rainforest-inspired space features accents in forest green and custom wood built-ins.
