Omakaseed at Plant Bar, a plant-based omakase dining experience set to open in New York City’s NoMad neighborhood on April 30, will bring global flavors and fresh plant-based ingredients to New Yorkers and visitors from around the world. The unique dining experience is launched in partnership with SimpleVenue, an experiential agency connecting food and beverage concepts with world class venues, and Vegan Warrior Project, an organization that helps restaurants maximize their kitchen capacity by connecting them to plant-based delivery concepts. The Japanese-inspired service will feature an eight-seat sushi bar with five seatings per night, and an omakase menu curated by the Chef based on seasonal, fresh ingredients.
This fresh take on plant-based dining is led by Executive Chef Roberto Romero, an experienced Michelin star chef with a passion for plant-based culinary innovation. At opening, guests can experience dishes such as Vegan Nigiri, Miso Soup, Potato Matcha Soup, Sunomo Style Pulled Oyster Mushroom Salad, Watermelon Tuna with Pickled Kelp and additional plant-based Japanese-inspired courses. The cocktail menu will feature specialty cocktails incorporating fresh fruits and vegetables including: Feel the Beet, Practice What you Peach, Who’s Your Edamame, Green Goddess and Mint to Be.
“Following the success of Sushi by Bou, we are thrilled to launch Omakaseed in partnership with the Vegan Warrior Project,” says Erika London, President at SimpleVenue. “Our passion is showcasing the incredible flavors provided by the earth through our plant-based dishes, and Omakaseed will be a pioneering concept in the vegan food scene with an intimate setting.”
“Each omakase course will incorporate eclectic global flavors,” says Chef Jorge Pineda, Chef at Omakaseed and Executive Chef at the Vegan Warrior Project. “Our menu is carefully curated week by week based on what’s seasonally available and at its peak flavor profile, giving our guests a dining experience that uncovers the complexities of each vegan sushi course, completely transforming the vegan sushi concept.”
The intimate omakase bar is limited to 8 seats, with seating priced at $85 per person (exclusive of tax and gratuity). Dinner omakase seatings will be open from Wednesday to Saturday from 5:30PM – 10:30PM, with the last seating on Saturdays at 11:30PM. Omakase at Plant Bar is located inside Plant Bar at 1204 Broadway, New York, NY 10001.
