Omochikaeri means to pickup and carry home. Kumiko is a celebration of Julia’s Japanese heritage and we hope to provide a moment of calm in the form of Kumiko at home for each of our patrons.
Spiritfrees, a rotating selection of wine, Japanese sake, beer and cocktail kits are offered alongside little luxuries such as candles, incense and cocktail tools.
Orders are available for preorder online from the Kumiko website with pickups between 4pm and 8pm on Fridays.
Prices are inclusive of tax.
Kumiko is owned in partnership by Creative Director Julia Momose and Executive Chef Noah Sandoval. We opened just over a year ago and since then were named one of ten Best New Restaurants by Food & Wine, Best New Restaurant by Modern Luxury CS, Best New Bar by Chicago Magazine, and also earned a spot on Time’s list of the World’s 100 Greatest Places of 2019. Kumiko also received the award for Best Bar at the 2020 Jean Banchet Awards.
While we cannot welcome guests in to experience Kumiko in our home at this time, we hope to offer a piece of Kumiko to enjoy in their homes.
