HARTFORD – State Representative Tim Ackert (R-8) joined other local dignitaries, residents, and the Chen family at the grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration of the Umami Japanese Restaurant in Vernon.
“I am pleased to welcome the Chen owned family restaurant to Vernon,” Rep. Ackert said. “It is wonderful to see all of the work they have done to transform this once unoccupied location into a beautiful restaurant with delicious food.”
The former Rockville Friendly’s location at 172 Union Street will feature authentic Japanese cuisine including an expansive sushi menu, various noodle dishes, and desserts. The restaurant will also feature a full sushi bar where patrons can sit in front of their chefs and watch as they individually prepare their sushi rolls.
Before the ribbon cutting, Rep. Ackert and Rockville Mayor Daniel Champagne presented owner Paul Chen with a legislative citation to commemorate the occasion.
