New Japanese in New City: Photos of Kumo


Hipsters, you say??In New City??Once you get a look at the 30-foot-long copper bar, the flickering candles on the tables, the calming shades of ginger and tangerine and the dark wood accents — you might just be convinced:?yes, the scene at Kumo is ripe for hipsters.

Kumo, which opened in December on South Main?Street, is owner and executive chef Steven Chen’s fourth location (the others are in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Pearl?River), so you can bet the menu has tried-and-true Pan Asian favorites, such as the White Tuna Fusion, seared white tuna with house spice, black pepper, plum and wasabi sauce, and the New City Roll, a combination of shrimp tempura and cream cheese topped with avocado and eel. Entrees include Crispy Red Snapper with mango and asparagus and Shanghai Roasted Chilean Sea Bass over warm tomato vinaigrette with Pacific spiced potato crisps.

Think you’re hip enough??Better make a reservation. Kumo has been packed since it opened. — Joy Weinrich

    I found bones and scales in my sushi and they wouldn’t even comp my lunch. I had to talk to 4 different people before they “let” us pay for the lunch and then give us a 10 dollar credit. 4 hours later the manager had the tenacity to call me back and tell me that the credit I received from my waitress was void. He said because he had not seen the bones that it wasn’t the waitress’s responsibility to give out a credit. Seriously, don’t ever give them the business, clearly the manager has no sense of customer service. Too bad that everything about this restaurant has SEVERELY declined since it opened. Whatever you do, do NOT go!
