Wonderful Wagamama Opens Doors Murray Hill

Wonderful Wagamama Opens Doors Murray Hill

The best thing to happen this weekend is taking place on the east side. The incredible Asian-inspired Wagamama is now open in Murray Hill to great applause.

There is truly nothing better. Whether you are a meat lover or a vegan this restaurant has something for you. With true stylish sophistication the popular brand is living up to its fantastic reputation. After expanding to 196 locations in 27 countries worldwide, UK-based wagamama has been winning fans around the world for years.

The Murray Hill location is the third in town and it is mind-blowing. The famous dishes are on the menu from across the pond. They have inspired chefs and foodies around the world. Now it is the Big Apple’s turn.

Sleek in design and grand in taste is the best way to describe what is destined to be one of the hottest places in town. Whether it is for a date or a family outing it will delight.

On top of all the greatness, the lastest venue is also offering its first exclusive dish in the U.S., for a limited time and only in the new location. Available for just one month, the Hot Katsu curry is a fiery version of the restaurant chain’s iconic Chicken Katsu curry, a dish ordered 3.5 million times a year in the UK alone. 

The newest New York wagamama highlights recently introduced vegan menu options as well. To support Wagamama’s support for healthy living vegan eaters have so much to rave about. The restaurant features a limited edition vegan dish—Avant Gard’n—co-developed by wagamama’s Executive Chef Steve Mangleshot and trailblazing UK vegan chef Gaz Oakley. 

Avant Gard’n is a coconut and sriracha vegan ‘egg,’ paired with barbeque-glazed seitan, edamame, grilled asparagus and mushrooms, all served on a bed of sticky white rice. The ‘egg’ alone will bring a huge smile to your face.

Come in today for fantastic dishes and an offering of great cocktails, bottled beers, and sake.

Among the specialty Asian-twist cocktails, developed in conjunction with mixologist Adam Schuman, is a lychee martini combining vodka, vermouth and sake spiked with a sweet lychee liqueur. The mocktails include a refreshing cranberry+blossom, cranberry juice, cherry blossom syrup and lemon juice, topped with soda and garnished with mint

Murray Hill wagamama is located at 605 Third Avenue. For more, visit or follow along on social media @wagamama_usa.
