Welcome to Shumi Japanese Cuisine. Shumi in Japanese means 'hobby' which was first started by our Master Chef Aikasa in Somerville, New Jersey. Our owner and sushi chef, David Seo, is a close student working with Aikasa. As you step into Shumi, you will see the open bar and feel a sense of refreshing and clear atmosphere. Shumi's Omakase has a unique way of introducing and presenting sushi to newcomers and veterans alike in Ridgewood, New Jersey. Omakase is the chef-selected tasting menu of seasonal sushi and/or sashimi from the day's catch. If you try the Omakase, the Chef will present each piece of sushi and give you a full experience behind each one. You will leave with a unique experience using all five of your senses.
"Omakase", in Japanese, translates to "I will leave it up to you." In this Chef-curated tasting menu, you will be able to enjoy a piece-by-piece multi course meal consisting of the seasonal sushi and sashimi crafted from the day's catch. Our omakase bar provides a relaxing and intimate experience like no other. You will be able to observe the traditional art of sushi making as each course is explained in detail.
