Husband and wife owners, Guy and Tali Vaknin have created a 100% vegan sushi eatery with two locations in Manhattan. "I wanted to offer patrons a unique and exciting 'experience' when dining at Beyond Sushi", quotes Guy Vaknin, "an enticing and ethical way of eating well while nourishing your body and soul". At Beyond Sushi, we strive to promote an all natural diet by pairing locally grown, fresh ingredients together and crafting delectable works of art, each bite being consistent with the last. Beyond Sushi commits to a sustainable and cruelty-free environment with an excellence in customer service.
Sushi which originates in Japan is a dish that refers to a specially prepared rice, and not the raw fish itself. This is commonly mistaken amongst frequent restaurant-goers. Each vegetable and fruit sushi gem at Beyond Sushi is wrapped with Forbidden black rice or a six- grain rice medley and topped off with colorful tofu, fruit, and veggie pureés; which are house made. "You do not have to be vegan to enjoy our menu", says Tali," it's all about taking a moment to detox from your daily eating habits and enjoying something wholesome. After all, it's a fun way of enjoying your essential fruit and vegetable servings".
