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
