“Umemoto-style” dishes featuring Japanese ingredients in Italian cuisine

In July 2016, a secret hideout-like Japanese restaurant, “Umemoto", opened 5 minutes away, on foot from Takaoka Station in Nagoya. The chef is Mr. Akinori
Umemoto is using his training in an Italian restaurant and a bakery, he is captivating his fans with creative dishes based on Italian cuisine.

The chef seeks to discover new potentials of food by experimenting with seasonal ingredients and thinking about creative ways to combine them. One of the all-time favorites on the menu is “Marinated tomatoes with burrata cheese,” featuring tomatoes from Kato Noen (Mikawa Ishiki, Aichi). Additionally, homemade Karasumi and croissants are also popular. He mainly stocks Italian wine, which pairs well with the ingredients used in Japanese cuisine but also has selected wines from France and Australia.

The restaurant is marked only with a sign with its name, “Umemoto,” on the front and has an elegant, Japanese look. There are only 7 seats at the counter, finished with a persimmon tannin lacquer, facing an open kitchen, offering a secluded atmosphere. His particular taste in the choice of furnishings, such as chairs by Cassina and stemware by J & L Lobmeyr and Zalto, creates a high-end feel. At lunchtime, the restaurant becomes a relaxing spot for the neighborhood women and at dinner time, it is filled with people celebrating a special day or having business dinner. The dishes featuring Chef Umemoto’s unique take might just give you something new to get excited about.
