Umai Umai is a small sushi spot in Fairmount that could work for anything from a casual weeknight dinner by yourself to a weekend date night. It’s a bit more expensive than your average neighborhood sushi spot, but still affordable, especially considering how fresh and creative the rolls are. The 4-8-15-23-42 is one of our favorites, but any of the rolls or sashimi are good bets.
