Umami Sushi Restaurant & Bar is located at 724 Saw Mill River Road (Village Green Shopping Plaza), Ardsley, NY 10502 in Westchester County.
From Umami Sushi Bar: "Fans of Japan's artful maki and sashimi have one more reason to visit Ardsley's new Umami Sushi Bar located at 724 Saw Mill River Road, in the Village Green shopping plaza, the Asian fusion restaurant features the most comfortable chairs one is likely to encounter outside of a four-star restaurant.
"The seats, which feature fine leather upholstery over generous cushions, were custom made. "We want people to feel comfortable when they eat with us," said Candy Lin, who, with her husband, Collin, co-owns the restaurant. Collin Lin is the head chef while his wife manages the door and restaurant floor.
"In addition to sushi and sashimi, Umami features hot dishes inspired by non-Japanese locales. One signature dish is called Mongolian Triple Feast — chicken, beef, and shrimp in a hoisin-soy sauce. Candy Lin explained that the dishes sometimes feature non-Asian cooking elements, such as olive oil, butter or cream. One of the owners' favorites is honeyglazed prawns, with a low-fat dairy cream and honey sauce, served with walnuts . . . Continued.
"The restaurant's name refers to a word with various meanings. To start, the Lins explained, "umami" is Japanese for "delicious" or "delightful." In recent years it has taken on a connotation in the English language, sometimes called "the fifth taste," and is used to describe foods with an earthy salt flavor, like soy sauce or Parmesan cheese.
'It is many tastes becoming one,' Collin Lin said of umami's elusive quality, "It has a lot of meanings." The suggestion to name the restaurant after the flavor came from a customer at their other restaurant, Fusha Sushi, located in Parsippany, N.J. now being managed by Collin's brother" . . . .
