Vegan-Friendly Sushi at Blue Sushi Sake Grill

Blue Sushi Sake Grill, Flagship’s marquee restaurant concept, first came on the dining scene in Omaha in 2002.

And the newest Chicago location is no exception. Guests of the restaurant can expect a variety of creative, vegan-friendly dishes throughout the restaurant’s happy hour, lunch, and dinner menus.

Blue Sushi Sake Grill’s Vegan Maki Selection Featuring Unique Plant-Based Rolls

The menus include a multitude of plant-based items, including a full vegan maki section of unique plant-based rolls, such as the Vegan Cowgirl roll loaded with vegan tempura, sriracha-fried onion rings, BBQ paper, vegan mayo, and tonkatsu sauce. The Unami Maki is another plant-based favorite at Blue Sushi Sake Grill and is made with BBQ eggplant “eel,” vegan cream cheese, avocado, and sweet soy sauce. Diners can also find creative small plates, dinner items, cocktails, and mocktails throughout the menus.

“It is an honor to get to welcome our Blue Sushi Sake Grill concept to Chicago. We feel so part of the community already, as we’ve spent a lot of time here over the years and have wanted to be here for such a long time. We love connecting with cities that speak to our core values, as a brand that wants to make a difference in the culinary community with respect to sustainability and philanthropy.” says Nick Hogan, CEO and Co-Owner of Flagship Restaurant Group.

Blue Sushi Sake Grill is located at 2351 N Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60614. The sushi eatery is open daily for lunch and dinner Monday through Thursday from 11am-10pm, Friday from 11am-11pm, Saturday from 12-11pm, and Sunday from 12-9pm.
