Forget the boring sushi with a questionable expiration date. As we head into warmer weather we can enjoy the warm weather without worry of spoiling the fish, with Beyond Sushi's vegan rolls.
Opening May 10th Beyond Sushi will be expanding from the Union Square, Chelsea Market, and Midtown West to take hold place in Herald Square. Founded by renowned chef, Guy Vaknin (From Hell's Kitchen) and his wife Tali, Beyond Sushi offers an assortment of nutritional and Instagram-worthy staples. Chef Guy and his culinary team fuse unconventional pairings of fruit and vegetables with whole grains to create sushi rolls, rice paper wraps, hand rolls, salads, healthy sweets, and hand-pressed juices.
A Signature Beyond Sushi dish is the Sunnyside Roll made with black rice, braised fennel, sundried tomatoes and avocado topped with butternut squash and an almond pesto sauce and the Spicy Mang with black rice, avocado, mango and English cucumber topped with spicy vegetables and a toasted Cayenne sauce. The new Herald Square location will also offer signature desserts to include an espresso pound cake with caramelized cumquats, chocolate oat disc, whipped coconut cream, caramel sauce, and orange zest.
You might be confused on how sushi could be veganized, as its main ingredient tends to be fish. According to Keep It Vegan's Sushi Guide, "There are, however, some amazing fillers for sushi, such as avocado, cucumber, shiitake, mushroom, bell pepper, and carrot."
While Beyond Sushi will include juices the new Herald Square location will feature a curated list of sakes and healthy craft cocktails, made with the freshest ingredients, to sip at their wrap around bar this spring.
