The Velvet Lounge was a very trendy restaurant that served excellent cocktails and fusion dishes. After mealtime, it turned into a very popular cocktail bar. Ten years on, the restaurant owner decided to try something new: Umami. The Velvet group, which owns other places including the summery Strantwerpen, the Soho wine bar and Night Club Roxy demonstrated once again that they are trend setters with this new restaurant.
An Asian touch
Umami is a Japanese word that means flavourful. The restaurant takes its inspiration from large cities like London and New York where a multitude of well-established gourmet Asian restaurants offer varied menus. You go to Umami to find different Asian food that goes beyond the wok and sushi and to taste a very wide range of Asian food.
Open Monday through Friday from 11:45 am to 2:15 pm and Monday through Sunday evenings from 6:00 pm to 10:30 pm
Born in Africa, I've lived between Europe, the United States and my homeland. A real mix of cultures! I'm always connected to social networks and on the lookout for great fashion, lifestyle, music and outing deals. I work in Antwerp as a public relations manager. I'm also a presenter for a TV music channel. My little extra: I like to get out and meet people.
