The modern Japanese restaurant sources ingredients directly from Japan.
Takumi is the sister restaurant to 110 Japan, which is located across the street from the Walt Whitman Shops in Huntington.
The restaurant will feature a main dining area, sushi bar and hibachi grills. (Scroll down for more photos.)
“If I had to choose three words to describe Takumi, they would be fresh, fun and flavorful,” said Sonny Lin, Takumi’s owner. “We take pride in only providing the highest quality food that’s sourced responsibly from local farms.”
“Takumi was designed for every celebration, from a big night out with friends to a quiet dinner with someone special,” Lin added. “Long Island has many sushi restaurants, but very few restaurants offer the intimacy of the customized omakase experience and food quality that we have.
“Bay Shore is a thriving town with an active restaurant scene and we are happy to be a part of it.”
Featuring modern Japanese cuisine that is authentic but not traditional, Takumi will offer an Asian-inspired array of food that is not limited to Japanese, reads an announcement from Westfield.
There’s build-your-own poke bowls, sushi wraps and ramen.
The 6,300-square-food restaurant could hold up to 200 people and includes an outdoor patio for seating in the summer.
Some signature dishes include:
• Spicy Seafood Soup with tofu, egg, assorted seafood and veggies.
• Takumi Sushi Tacos with pan-seared yellowtail, lettuce, scallion and ponzu dressing
• The Takumi Style Hand-roll Combo with spicy tuna, jumbo lump crab meat, yellowtail jalapeño, salmon and mango salsa.
• The Sashimi Pandora Box, which is a Japanese-style antipasti.
“We are excited to welcome Takumi to Westfield South Shore,” said Vanessa Mitton, the mall’s marketing director. “Takumi will be a great dining destination for our shoppers looking to experience fun, innovative and high-quality Japanese cuisine.”
Takumi’s sushi bar can seat up to eight people.
The restaurant will also serve Edomae-style sushi and design a new menu for each season using ingredients from Toyosu Fish Market in Tokyo.
To celebrate the opening, customers who check-in or post about the restaurant, tagging Takumi on any social media platform, will receive one free appetizer up to $11. There will also be a raffle giveaway valid for the grand opening month, where patrons will have a chance to win a complimentary appetizer, drink, dessert or gift card. After the grand opening, Takumi will be introducing a Sunday brunch with a hibachi twist. It will be the first Japanese restaurant to offer a Sunday brunch in the area.
