Kosher Vegan Restaurant to Open in Forest Hills
Forest Hills residents will soon welcome a kosher, vegan, and organic restaurant. It will be called Har Sinai (Mount Sinai), reports DNA Info.
The space is currently undergoing renovations, and is slated to open in September. It will be located on Metropolitan Avenue, in the former location of Wafa's, a non-kosher Lebanese restaurant that closed in June.
Co-owner Rene David Alkalay is also behind Genesis Tree of Life Yoga and Wellness Center which is also on Metropolitan Avenue, and Austin Street's Red Pipe Organic Café. This will be the first kosher, vegan, and organic restaurant in Queens.
Har Sinai's menu will include a mix of cuisines such as Japanese and Italian, and will be vegetable-heavy, with dishes such as sweet potato casserole with a crunchy nut crumble and roasted butternut squash salad mentioned in the article.
“Vegan food is incredibly healthy, it’s good for the planet, it’s good for ecology, it’s good for our economy and I think there is enough of a vegan population in Queens and throughout New York,” Alkalay said to DNA Info.
