Culinary specialist and main vegan chef Guy Vaknin and his significant other Tali Vaknin propelled the lead location of Beyond Sushi in 2012 in NYC’s Union Square neighborhood and have since extended the chain across Manhattan.
The new 1,000-square-foot space will offer seating for 50 customers and is the chain’s first area to have a full alcohol permit to supplement its vegan kitchen. Its menu includes about six mark sushi rolls, including Spicy Mang, Mighty Mushroom and Pickle Me, alongside an assortment of rice paper wraps and dumplings.
Moreover, Beyond Sushi offers dishes, for example, truffle risotto, stuffed artichoke hearts, Spanakopita, and a craftsman cheddar board with locally sourced cashew cheeses. Its mixed drink menu will highlight vegan beverages, for example, a Peppercorn Martini, Blood Orange Margarita, and a Bubbly Pina Colada, alongside hard alcohol, wine, brew, and sake.
