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. Since then, the restaurant group, owned by Nick Hogan, Anthony Hitchcock, Tom Allisma, and Tony Gentile, has upheld Flagship’s mission to provide a constantly-evolving culinary experience while keeping pace with consumer demand—read vegan-friendly sushi at Blue Sushi Sake Grill! 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.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
