Matthew Kenney Opens Vegan Rooftop Restaurant in NYC
In partnership with wellness lifestyle and leading activewear brand Alo Yoga, Matthew Kenney Cuisine is set to open SUTRA, a plant-based restaurant emphasizing innovative raw cuisine on the top floor of Alo’s Sanctuary in the Flatiron District of NYC. SUTRA will serve elegant dishes in a minimalistic yet chic environment. Diners can enjoy dishes like Omega 3 Beet Poke (wakame, macadamia, spinach, crispy rice, and edamame), Pineapple Adobo Tacos (avocado, cabbage, and cilantro crema), Carrot + Zucchini Pasta (sundried tomato marinara, pistachio pesto, and ricotta), and a Cheese Plate with fermented vegetables, fruits, and seedy crackers.
“This restaurant is a dream come true. A hideaway in plain sight overlooking 5th Avenue, that serves fine-dining raw cuisine. I couldn’t imagine anything better,” says Kenney. “Working with ALO allows for the intersection of wellness, yoga, and food—it’s what MKC is all about. Promoting a healthier lifestyle is our mission.” He also adds, “Many years ago, a psychic told me I would own a business with views of the Flatiron building in New York. When I stepped onto the rooftop patio at SUTRA, I knew it, this was the place.”
SUTRA will open on Friday, October 16 and is located at 164 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10010.
