‘Sage Kitchen’ Heads to the Bowery Next Month with Restaurant Marketplace

Posted on: February 6th, 2019 at 5:04 am by

Popular local catering company, Sage Kitchen, announced yesterday its plans for a new brick-and-mortar establishment on the Bowery.

The five-year-old catering company recently took the vacated storefront at 352 Bowery for its venture, which includes both a fast-casual restaurant and complementary “lifestyle marketplace” with its specialized groceries.

(Until last month, this space previously housed the Bowery Bond, an artist collective selling menswear and womenswear, as well as a variety of accessories.)

The new Sage Kitchen is slated to launch next month.

According to the verbose, thousand-word media advisory, the dairy-free menu draws on chef-owner Jasmine Einalhori’s Israeli and Persian heritage. Vegan and vegetarian options include much of Sage Kitchen’s current offerings like hand-made sandwiches, grain-bowls, and salads.

“We are excited to also utilize this space as a creative test kitchen,” Einalhori said in a statement. “Each Sage Kitchen menu item delicately balances salt, acid, texture, and color for a continuously perfect bite.
