The Japanese restaurant facing Sunrise opened Sunday.
Takumi is the sister restaurant to 110 Japan, which is located across the street from the Walt Whitman Shops in Huntington. There’s a dining room, sushi bar and hibachi grills.
“If I had to choose three words to describe Takumi, they would be fresh, fun and flavorful,” Sonny Lin, Takumi’s owner, previously said. “We take pride in only providing the highest quality food that’s sourced responsibly from local farms.”
“Long Island has many sushi restaurants, but very few restaurants offer the intimacy of the customized omakase experience and food quality that we have,” Lin added. “Bay Shore is a thriving town with an active restaurant scene and we are happy to be a part of it.”
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.”
