Happy Birthday Sumiao and USA!

Happy Birthday Sumiao and USA!

This month we’re celebrating two major events: America’s birthday and Sumiao Hunan Kitchen’s 6th anniversary! We’re so grateful to have been open for six years thanks to the support from all of you. To our guests, loyal fans, readers, and followers: we thank you for allowing us to serve you! To express our gratitude, we would like to offer ten of you the chance to bring a significant other to join us for a complimentary meal at our birthday celebration. We will be holding this event on Monday, July 24th with limited reservations. Please fill out this form before July 7th for a chance for you and a guest to attend the party. We will reach out to the winners the week of July 10th.

Independence Day Picnics

If you’re in town for the 4th, come celebrate with us! Our patio will be open all day (weather permitting). Or, grab some friends and do a Sumiao takeout picnic. So delicious!

Cheers! July Drink Specials

We’re so excited to share three new cocktails for July! Sip on these summer specials:
1. Huckleberry Mule (mocktail) – Huckleberry Lavender Syrup, Lime, Ginger Beer
2. Summer Oasis – Lillet Blanc, Rye Whiskey, Cointreau, Lemon
3. Blue Hawaii – Rum, Vodka, Blue Curacao, Coconut Cream, Pineapple, Lime
We’ve also added two new beers: Switchback Ale and Notch NA Hazy IPA. Switchback Ale is Vermont’s #1 selling craft beer. It is an unfiltered, reddish-amber ale that’s particularly well balanced. Notch Brewing’s Non-Alcoholic Hazy IPA is similar to a traditional IPA with a tropical aroma and soft, juicy flavor.

New Tea at Sumiao

New tea alert! We are thrilled to be partnering with MEM tea, a local brand that runs their own tea shop and training center in North Cambridge, MA. Sumiao is the only restaurant that carries one of each of their tea types: white, green, black, oolong, pu-erh, and herbal tisane. Our new tea menu serves authentic Chinese tea plus a variety of herbal tea.

Drinking tea is an important aspect of Chinese culture, so we ensure that our staff is properly trained on the types of tea, their benefits, and flavor profiles.

Our Patio is Beautiful!

Friendly reminder that our patio is open for both lunch and dinner! We’ve spruced up our patio and love how it looks glowing at night.
