I Am Excited About the New Umi Star Restaurant

Posted By on Fri, Aug 10, 2012 at 4:00 PM

I can't wait for Jason Anderson's new Umi Star restaurant to open. I'm a sucker for slick and sensible restaurant design, which is one of his specialties.

Anderson designed the new Cartel Coffee Lab space - a smooth, open room with clean lines, great lighting and a very comfortable feel - and worked on Union Public House before heading off to other projects. He's also designed a number of places up in Phoenix.

Anderson says Umi Star, which is located in the former Cartel Coffee Lab location at 2502 N. Campbell Ave., will serve Asian street food with an Arizona and Southern California flair. He was talking about Japanese-style hot dogs, sushi, tacos and other things this morning. He's brought in a chef from renowned La Jolla, Calif., restaurant Crab Catcher to run the place as well.

He expects to get the doors open by early September. You can follow Umi Star on Facebook here.
