BITES NEARBY: Umami Bistro
Kosher Japanese and Chinese cuisine served at 1500 Reisterstown Road in Pikesville.
You could stand on a corner and look around until a restaurant sign draws you in. But we've got a better idea. Each week, Pikesville Patch picks a great restaurant, either in town or nearby, that is worth checking out. Here's this week's choice:
UMAMI BISTRO—There's something appealing about a restaurant where you can get both Chinese and Japanese dishes, including sushi. And as Pikesville residents, we love our Asian food.
At Umami Bistro, the food is kosher, another plus, and the restaurant serves all-natural ingredients.
Here, the food is tasty, fresh, and brought out quickly. It's also a great place to meet with friends, at a table, booth, or at the bar.
Among the fish dishes are:
Sesame-Encrusted Tuna: Lightly grilled sushi-grade tuna over a bed of spinach with homemade teriyaki sauce. $21.99
Sabra Salmon: Grilled salmon fillet soaked in Sabra coffee liqueur marinade. $20.99.
Take a group with you to sample the sushi. Umami Bistro is located at 1500 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville. 410-484-7787.
Open daily for lunch and dinner. For more info, visit the bistro website.
