Beyond Sushi
Beyond Sushi is the pioneer of the plant-based, sushi movement. A 100% vegan eatery that celebrates the flavors and beauty of locally-sourced, seasonal produce. Founded by renowned Chef, Guy Vaknin, and his wife, Tali, Beyond Sushi offers an assortment of distinctive sushi rolls and other nutritional staples at their three outposts in Manhattan.

Chef Guy and his culinary team fuse unconventional pairings of fruit and vegetables with whole grains to create wide-ranging vegan dishes including dumplings, noodle salads, and noodle soups with catchy names such as “Smokey Tom,” “Chic Pea,” and “Jolly Onion.” In addition, the brand has reinvented their signature sushi rolls, rice bed salads, and paper wraps to intrigue the masses.

Beyond Sushi strives to popularize a modern approach to traditional sushi by crafting intricate and wholesome dishes that are as pleasing to the eye as they are to the palate.

Our mission is to promote a sustainable, all-natural, and compassionate menu.

Our promise is to refresh and nourish your bodies while creating a new standard of clean eating

Our vision is to create a world in which society will reduce their ecological footprint.

After finishing his military duties in the Israeli Defense Force, Israel native, Chef Guy Vaknin moved to New York in 2005 to pursue his dream of working as a Chef in America. He studied at the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan. Shortly after graduating, he became the Executive Chef at Esprit Events where he prepared cutting edge dishes for some of the most notable charity galas, corporate functions, and high end weddings, Chef Guy was selected as a contestant on Fox Network’s show, Hell’s Kitchen, Season 10.

On July 1st, 2012, following the completion of the show, Guy pursued a new endeavor and opened Beyond Sushi, a 100% vegan casual eatery. In December 2012, Guy and his future wife Tali joined forces in developing the Beyond Sushi brand. Together in May 2013, they launched their second location in the famous Chelsea Market. In August 2013, Guy and Tali tied the knot. In November 2014, one week before welcoming their first child, they opened the doors to their third Manhattan location in Midtown West. “Having a child created meaning in our lives and gives me a true sense of purpose,” says Chef Guy. “My son is the driving force behind all of my hard work and accomplishments and for that I am very thankful.”

Chef Guy credits his passion for cooking to his Moroccan and Israeli roots and is a huge advocate of sustaining relationships with local farmers to produce ingredients for his restaurants.
