Omakaseed brings a plant-based Omakase dining experience to NYC!


Omakaseed at Plant Bar is a plant-based omakase dining experience in New York’s NoMad neighborhood. The restaurant brings visitors global flavors with fresh plant-based ingredients. Service is Japanese-inspired and features an eight-seat sushi bar with five seats per night and a chef-curated omakase menu that bases the menu on fresh, seasonal ingredients.

The experiment is a collaboration between vegan restaurant Plant Bar, hotel group SimpleVenue and Vegan Warrior Project, an organization that helps maximize kitchen capacity in restaurants by connecting them to plant-based deliveries.

“I’m so proud of working with SimpleVenue to create Omakaseed,” Ross Glick, co-founder of the Vegan Warrior Project, told One Green Planet. “The food and experience is deliciously flavorful and unique. It’s a truly special, communal meal that leaves our guests with nothing but good vibes. My favorite moments are watching traditional (fish) sushi eaters and hardcore non-vegans light up in ecstasy as they devour every bite, then commenting that they can’t believe it’s a #transformation vegan.

The menu is inspired by global and Japanese cuisine, and customers can expect to see a variety of Nigiri as well as miso soup, matcha potato soup, oyster-style pulled oyster mushroom salad Sunomo, watermelon tuna with marinated kelp, and more! You can also order from a range of quirky-named cocktails featuring fresh fruits and vegetables, including Feel the Beet, Practice What you Peach, Who’s Your Edamame, Green Goddess and Mint to Be.

“Each course of omakase will incorporate eclectic global flavors,” said chef Jorge Pineda, chef at Omakaseed and executive chef of the Vegan Warrior Project. “Our menu is carefully curated week after week based on what is seasonally available and at its optimum flavor profile, providing our customers with a dining experience that unravels the intricacies of each vegan sushi course, completely transforming the concept of sushi vegan.”

The intimate omakase bar is limited to 8 seats and costs $65 per person to make the vegan experience accessible to a wider audience. The omakase dinner seats are open Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. You can find Omakaseed located at Plant Bar at 1204 Broadway, New York, NY 10001.
