Umami was voted Best Japanese Restaurant in the 2017 Pittsburgh City-Paper Readers' Poll, which announced its results this morning. Umami, which opened in Lawrenceville in April 2016,
offers contemporary Japanese fare that is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the tastebuds. Menu categories include robatayaki — skewered foods grilled over charcoal — and yatai, which encompasses items served at street-food stands.
Nakama was voted Best Sushi, and had been a perennial winner of Best Japanese, garnering the most votes in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2015, and 2016.
