Cruz Bay Restaurant Revamps Itself

Sushi St. John, the popular spot in downtown Cruz Bay, plans to revamp itself when it reopens later this week … The restaurant will now be called the UMAMI Bar: Island Catch & Cocktails.

Umami (/uˈmɑːmi/), a savory taste, is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness). 

UMAMI can be best translated as “pleasant savory taste”.

UMAMI will still have the same owners, the same fantastic sushi, but it will now have an expanded hot side menu to appeal to more senses. The new menu is Asian-inspired and was designed to compliment the sushi side of the menu. Take a peek at the new menu…


UMAMI opens later this week. We’ll keep you all posted.

Happy Monday everyone!
