Beyond Sushi – New York

photo 2All vegetarian and vegan sushi bar? hell yes! Beyond Sushi is for all the sushi lovers out there that have been to so many Japanese restaurants and requested, begged and pleaded for vegetarian rolls. With 2 outposts in New York City, this place is not to be missed. They make interesting concoctions with mangoes, kiwi, micro greens, tofu, black rice and much more.

Small and unassuming, Beyond Sushi has a wide open vegetable bar where you can watch your sushi being carefully crafted. They have a small seating space, so you may have to take your sushi to-go, but thats not such a bad thing in New York. They even sell their delicious black rice in jars, I couldn’t stop myself from buying one cause it tasted so good in their sushi. All the rolls are super flavorful and avant-garde, I would suggest you forget the traditional avocado-cucumbers and go all out on the ‘Spicy Mang’. Read more

A small, cute, purple restaurant with limited tables inside, this place is vegetarian heaven. An all-vegan restaurant with delicious foods from across the world. They serve great food that is fresh and innovative, combining flavors from local and international cuisine. Located in the old town, this is a perfect stop to make during a day of sight seeing.

Nishta is Sanskrit for ‘elevated state of mind’ and after eating here you will definitely get there. This cozy restaurant has a funky decor with Barbie and Ken stuck on the bathroom doors to make gender distinctions. The tables are closely packed and you may be rubbing elbows with a fellow eater, but you won’t complain about it. Read more
