Japanese fusion cuisine has arrived to Park Avenue! Umi Restaurant offers everything from fresh sushi and fresh seafood to robata grilled meats and master confected sushi rice. Also featured are homemade desserts and the largest local selection of Japanese hot, cold and infused sake, plus Japanese premium beer by the bottle.
“Our interpretation of Japanese fusion is combining authentic Japanese cooking with cuisines from all over the world. It’s traditional Japanese dishes with influence from another culture, or dishes from another country with an added Japanese twist,” explained Gilles Lorin, manager of Umi, “Only here will you find Salmon Canapé, yuzu Asian citrus Ceviche, Asian Pear Gazpacho, Bluefin Toro Tuna Tartare and Matcha Green Tea Panna Cotta.”
Another point of distinction at Umi is the sauces which are always made fresh from scratch by the Chef, unlike other Japanese restaurants which utilize ready made sauces. “It really makes a difference with flavor and taste,” emphasized Lorin.
