Kumo in Pearl River


This in from a reader:

My husband and I heard about Kumo in Pearl River and headed over there for lunch today. From the moment you see the granite steps and welcoming glass doors you feel like you’re in Manhattan. You would never know you are in Pearl River once you step inside. It rivals any Manhattan eatery in style and sophistication. The service was pleasant and the food was excellent. My husband and I eat sushi several times a week so we know sushi. This was among the freshest I have had anywhere. Absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Desserts are upscale and tasty as well. Word must be getting around since the owner said we should be sure to make reservations on the weekend; he told us they also have one in Danbury. What a fabulous addition to Rockland!

I don’t have a 411 yet, but here’s the address and phone: 22 S Main St., Pearl River. 845-920-0886.

  1. I’ve passed by the one in Danbury many, many times without ever trying it because, quite frankly, it bills itself as a Hibachi steakhouse and I’ve yet to go to a Hibachi place that served anything other than mediocre sushi at best. (I’m also not the biggest hibachi fan, either.)

    Is Kumo in P.R. primarily hibachi or sushi?

  2. Where is the one in Danbury? I just searched on Kumo and Danbury and did not find anything. They do have one in Waterbury,, and from the website it appears they have a nice sushi menu.

  3. Hi, I believe Bill is right and I was wrong. There is one in Waterbury. I did not see any Hibachi tables in the small restaurant in Pearl River. The sushi is truly excellent, very fresh, and the ambiance is great; a real break from the far more common plain and uninvited sushi restaurants that populate Rockland. You truly feel like you are in Manhattan! We eat at Sakana in Nanuet all the time and their fish is very fresh; Kumo might actually be better.
