Opened in 2014 to a 4.5 Star review from the Baltimore Sun, Azumi is located on Baltimore's Inner Harbor in the elegant Four Seasons Hotel. With picturesque panoramic waterfront views, Azumi offers authentic Japanese cuisine with a strong focus on sushi matched with an amazing "hot kitchen."

Enjoy outdoor dining on our expansive patio. Outside seating can be requested but not guaranteed.

About the restaurant
**Terrace Now Open. Seating available for walk-ins on a first-come-first-serve basis.**
True Chesapeake is a fine dining restaurant born of an oyster farm. Executive Chef Zack Mills creates a seasonal menu that showcases oysters from our far St. Jerome’s Creek, Southern Maryland — raw, roasted, and in signature dishes like Classic Rockefeller and Semolina Fried Oysters. But, the oysters are just the beginning. Our award winning menu celebrates the bounty of the Chesapeake region by using locally sourced seafood, meat, and produce to create exquisite dishes that evolve with the seasons. Chef Mills has been featured extensively for his use of invasive seafood species, a very delicious way to help the Chesapeake Bay. Don't forget to order the Blue Crab and Bone Marrow dip or handmade pasta. We have an expertly curated wine list, beer selection, and cocktails - both classic and creative. Ample bar, high-top, and terrace seating available for walk-ins on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Joey, one of the Managers, the Server and Bus person were all outstanding & provided superior service. Both the seafood club & salad brilliantly combined crab, lobster, & shrimp with a kick of spices. Yum! Somehow we saved room for dessert & split strawberry cream cheese bread pudding. Wow; the consistency of the dish was smooth & the overall taste was amazing!

Our visit to the Avenue Kitchen and Bar was quite enjoyable. The service was efficient without being overly intrusive. The food was delicious. We were the only people in the indoor dining room at the time and were seated next to a speaker blaring loud music, but the server had it turned down when we requested. Would definitely return.
