There’s a new quick serve restaurant in town, as SUMERA officially opens its doors today at 4313 Far Hills Avenue, in the strip mall that also hosts a Chipotle and Firehouse Subs. Open from 10:30am to 10pm seven days a week, you can eat in or have your meal packed for take out.
While traditional Sushi restaurants focus on raw selections like Salmon, Smoked Salmon, Spicy Tuna and Tuna; SUMERA makes Sushi accessible to the masses by adding cooked products like steak, chicken, tofu, shrimp, and peanut butter and jelly – and you can choose it in a roll or a noodle bowl.
As you walk down the order line you can choose one of their eight specialty rolls featured on the menu or create your own:
Crab Stick, Cucumber, Carrots, Avocado, Green Onion, Sweet Soy, Sesame Seeds
Steak, Asparagus, Red Onion, Shiitake Mushroom, Blue Cheese, Sesame and Toasted Sesame Seeds, Horseradish Sauce
Chicken, Bacon, Carrots, Asparagus, Green Onion, Cream Cheese, Ranch, Bacon and Blue Cheese Crumbles
Surf and Turf
Steak, Crab, Shiitake Mushroom, Asparagus,Blue Cheese, Red Onion, Sesame and Toasted Sesame Seeds, Horseradish Sauce
Shrimp Tempura, Green Onion, Cream Cheese, Asparagus, Sesame and Toasted Sesame Seeds, SUMERA Sweet Sauce
Mushroom, Cucumber, Asparagus, Carrot, Avocado, Red Onion, Pickled Radish, SUMERA Sweet Sauce, Sesame and Wasabi Sesame Seeds
PB & Jelly Roll
Peanut Butter and Jelly on a Soy Wrap with Crushed Peanuts
The fun part is you can customize any of the rolls or bowls, any way you like, adding or omitting carrots, green onions, mushrooms, jalapenos, avacados or other veggies and then you can customize your meal by adding toppings like bacon, sesame seeds, eel sauce, wasabi mayo, crunch tempura or many others options.
Opening any new restaurant is a risk, but the ownership team behind this new fast causal sushi joint have some pretty good successes behind them already. Leading the team is Ray Wiley, founder of Hot Head Burrtios, a concept he began right here in Kettering in 2007. Hot Head currently has close to 60 locations, some company owned, many franchised. He also is a franchise holder of 7 Subways in the area. Kelly Gray brings her real estate knowledge to the team as a successful Dayton commercial realtor. Matt Curtis is a 30 year veteran of restaurants, having worked with Skyline Chili, Subway and is a current owner of 13 Hot Head Burritos restaurants. Tif Tefs owns 10 Subway restaurants, co-owns 5 Hot Head Burritos restaurants and was former owner and area developer for a full service sports bar chain.
While it will take a little time to get this first Sumera rolling efficiently, plans are already under way to add two more locations in 2015. Realty expert Gray shares they are looking in Beavercreek and near Austin Landing for the next locations.
