“Izumi is our favorite sushi restaurant in Philly, besting even Morimoto. The fish selection is always fresh, and flown in every day. The non-sushi dishes are great too, including the best live uni dish and the Philly inspired scallop crepe with Buffalo mozzarella.” That’s what Eater Philly had to say when they named Izumi one of the 38 essential restaurants in Philadelphia. Chef Corey Baver’s experience at Morimoto, Buddakan and Alma de Cuba is evident in the creative menu. The specialty rolls get high marks and are one of the reasons that Gayot calls Izumi one of Philly’s top ten Sushi restaurants.
Located on E. Passyunk Avenue, one of the city’s hottest restaurant destinations, this BYO is elegantly designed. The large windows looking out on the fountain and the bustling street make for great people watching and a feeling of engagement.
— Chef Baver and the entire team at Izumi look forward to welcoming you soon. “San kyuu”!
