Kumo closed until next week
Kumo, a Japanese restaurant in Ridgewood, has closed for renovations. According to a sign on the door, it will reopen March 9.

Its sister restaurant by the same name in Westwood remains open, although its menu is more pan Asian, not solely traditional Japanese.

Now for the good news……..

New Japanese in Ridgewood

Masago, a Japanese restaurant, has opened in Ridgewood, replacing another Japanese restaurant, Hana. While the menu is described as neo Japanese cuisine, it’s mostly composed of familiar tempura, teriyaki, sushi and sashimi.

Masago is at 22 S. Broad St., Ridgewood; 201-652-4455.


  1. yea more bull shit.if you like cat foo youg,

  2. It’s March 10. Kumo is still “closed for renovations.” Looks like it will be changing its name to Sayonara!

  3. Went to Masago last week – was not impressed at all. Too much rice, not enough fish in their sushi. Gen (on Ridgewood Ave) has the best sushi in town, IMO
