It’s here – it’s here! Beyond Sushi is here on the Upper East Side and the neighborhood can finally rejoice.
The past two years have seen the incredible growth of the neighborhood that has been applauded as the hippest region of New York City to live in after the debut of the extended Q subway line. With the new decade came a surprise burst in the region with innovative shopping and eating on Second Avenue. The one thing that was missing was vegan. But, as of this week the wait is over.
Beyond Sushi has opened up their latest location just steps from the Q (and the 6 train), and the timing could not of come soon enough. The restaurant has become a heavenly destination for many New Yorkers who stick to a vegan diet and for anyone frankly who loves their delicious dishes.
Now to be found in the heart of UES at 1429 3rd Avenue is this fantastic restaurant. Resembling the cool, breezy décor and phenomenal service of their other locations – including at Union Square, 37th Street and Chelsea Market – is the new branch.
There is something so beautiful about walking into a Beyond Sushi. You know that you will find the legendary plates such as the go to house favorite Spicy Mang sushi roll (black rice, avocado, mango, veggie slaw, toasted cayenne sauce) that hits the mark with all taste buds. There is also the scrumptious Nutty Buddy rice paper wraps (baby kale, soba noodles, carrots, jalapeno, peanut butter, cashews, avocado, baked tofu, cilantro and ponzu sauce; and the Fun Guy dumplings (mushroom medley, tofu, spinach, micro arugula, chili panko, spicy bean, shitake truffle sauce).
Also not to be missed are great soups to warm up your winter days such as Coconut Curry soup, and the divine skewers Chipotle Seitan (baby watercress, red onion, sumac, cilantro, tahini and pomegranate molasses). Dishes have a kick with a hint of spice and delightful notes. Best of all you know that the delicious dishes you are eating are frankly healthy for you. What more does a modern day New Yorker need and want?
The UES has been craving this for so long. A relaxing environment with incredible food is hard to find, but truly look no further. Your heart will love it and your mind will tell you to go again and again.
Future plans for the location include a full bar (currently it is BYOB) and brunch to be served up in the spring. This is the best of vegan in the city and now the neighborhood can add it to the list of very cool reasons to live uptown off the Q train.
