SUMI (formerly Ma Tante Sumi) has been dazzling local patrons, celebrities (don't make us name drop) and visitors to the Castro for 20 years. A beautiful mix of Asian and French cuisine will put this 'Fresh and Sexy' legend on your map. If you have dined with Sumi in the past and haven't been in for awhile, you are in for a treat. 'Mama's had some work done', and it shows. Not only is the face lift a wonder with soft gold and grey tones but the menu reflects the change as well. Standards that we could not part with have remained (Miso Roasted Chicken, tempura-style calamari) as well as some flirtacious new addtions such as tuna tartare bursting with fresh ahi and avocado, and the perfect finish of the sumi-san dae made with Scharffenberger chocolate.
Groovy beats, friendly service, memorable cuisine and the sexiest location in town urge you succumb to your appetite.
