Sake Tumi closes temporarily to accommodate refresh, new menu

As of this weekend, Sake Tumi, the Asian fusion sushi restaurant at 714 N. Milwaukee St., will be closed for the next month or so to accommodate renovations.

According to owner Sunhee Selliken, the goal of the renovation is to provide a more comfortable experience for customers. Upgrades are also being made to the kitchen to accommodate a new menu, which will roll out when the restaurant reopens.

Additional changes include the hiring of master sushi chef James "Oshi-san" Oh. Oh brings more than 25 years of sushi experience to Sake Tumi, with a resume that includes work at Midori Sushi and Pacific Rim Bistro in Albuquerque, as well as Asahi Sushi Steak and Grill in Los Lunas, New Mexico.

Selliken says the restaurant will host a grand re-opening celebration sometime in August.
