Sake Destination - Umi

Posted by Beau Timken in 2009, December, Newsletter
I get asked a lot - "Where do you go for good sushi and good sake?" And I always say go find your own place! Or "I go there and they know me and just like any sushi place if you know the folks then they treat you differently - get it?" Basically I don't like sending people to places because they might not enjoy their experience and will think of me when the meal is over. I don't like that pressure! But there is a place that I can recommend with tremendous confidence, because not only do I love what they do with their fish, but they know their sake very well! (Why? I helped them with their menu!)

If you want that destination where great fish meets great sake then head to Umi ( and tell owners Stewart, Shamus and Russell that Beau sent you. These guys know their fish and they are quite keen on the sustainable fish program - so eat with confidence. Also they know their sakes very well ( so drink with confidence!

PS - I love Stewart's octopus! Superb - but don't eat it all or at least save me a few pieces!
