An illustrious sushi restaurant from New Jersey, Shumi Japanese Cuisine, is bringing its omakase-focused concept to the Shops at Legacy this fall in the space next to Jasper’s.
The eatery from Fukushima native Chef Kunihiko “Ike” Aikasa and his protege David Seo will debut at 7161 Bishop Road. The chefs had the idea to open a third location of their sushi eatery in the DFW area. They found the Shops at Legacy spot vacated by Naan Sushi and thought it was the perfect location for their upscale omakase-focused restaurant, reports CultureMap.
If the restaurant’s two New Jersey locations are any indication, diners can expect a chic contemporary environment with an elevated sushi bar at the center of the room. The raised sushi bar won’t separate diners from the chefs with a glass case or barrier, like in typical restaurants, which means diners can actually watch the chefs prepare every element of their 14 or 21-course omakase meals.
If diners opt to not be surprised by the chef’s omakase offerings, they can choose from a range of appetizers, including salads featuring salmon collar, seaweed, soft shell crab, grilled octopus, or fried oyster, and starters with a decidedly Western twist like salmon sashimi pizza; pork tartare served with fish and rice; and a salmon and melted mozzarella dish with spicy mayo, eel sauce, and fried onions. As far as entrees are concerned, the menu offers a variety of teriyaki, tempura, and curry options, along with entire sections devoted to ramen, maki rolls, and nigiri.
Shumi Japanese Cuisine expects to debut in Plano this September. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
