A popular Manhattan-based vegan and kosher restaurant chain is now delivering to sections of Queens for the very first time.

Beyond Sushi, which has seven locations spread across Manhattan, launched a new delivery service to residents of Long Island City and surrounding neighborhoods on Thursday.

The company will be making deliveries from its 6,000 square foot kitchen that it has in Long Island City, which is typically used to supply its Manhattan eateries.

The business is owned and run by Guy and Tali Vaknin, Long Island City residents who are slowly reopening their Manhattan restaurants for take out and delivery.

The heightened focus on delivery orders, they say, has provided them with an opportunity to finally expand into Queens.

“We love our neighborhood and always wanted to bring our menu to the community,” Tali said. “My husband, Guy, is our head chef and he works from our main kitchen in LIC.”

Western Queens residents can now order from Beyond Sushi’s plant-based menu which includes distinctive sushi rolls and signature vegan dishes.

The menu includes a hickory-smoked burger – which is made up of wine cipollini onions, roma tomatoes, watercress and chipotle sauce –  and oyster mushroom tacos that contain pickled red cabbage, cilantro, avocado mousse and charred tomatillo sauce.

The company also serves up a wide range of salads, soups, dumplings, and desserts.

Deliveries are available seven days a week from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Orders can be placed directly through the company’s website or by downloading the Beyond Sushi app.
