Nestled within the modern décor of Carmine Giardini’s newly opened Umi Fishbar and Grill, chef Mike Jin rolls out more than 20 inventive sushi creations. Chopsticks break from renditions of the “Wipeout” drum solo to pluck up crunchy morsels of tuna in capes of avocado trimmed with wasabi and wild-pepper sauce. Three varieties of organic, handcrafted Momokawa sake cleanse palates between bites; the unfiltered nigori sake boasts a milky hue and robust finish, whereas flavored sakes hint at notes of peach and pear. As mouths chew contentedly, eyes reflect the flames from the traditional Japanese grill, & outside, the marina-side patio furnishes ample views of gentle waves and christenings of newborn yachts.
Carmine's Original Ocean Grill & Sushi Bar
At Carmine's Original Ocean Grill & Sushi Bar, restaurateur Carmine Giardini's vision to revive the seafood flair of former restaurant Ocean Grill has come to fruition. While patrons enjoy to stunning views of the Soverel Harbor Marina, they are also treated to a copious variety of locally caught fish, seafood, and steaks grilled on a hardwood charcoal grill by executive chef Alexander Sutherland.
But like a mashed-potato-sculpting class, the restaurant presents plenty of other ways to enjoy your food. In its lounge-style setting, patrons nibble on selections from the raw-sushi bar, choose from entrees such as miso-glazed sea bass and oven-roasted crispy duck, or savor robata grill dishes cooked in an authentic, ancient-style irori—a traditional Japanese charcoal-fired hearth. They also sip wine, sake, and creative cocktails such as the Asian pear martini and the strawberry mule.
