With all the talk of a expanded Whole Foods in Callowhill, we thought we’d shift directions and head to New York for a moment.
Inside the new Whole Foods on the Lower East Side, there’s a full sushi restaurant. Sushiya (pictured above) is going to be serving up a full menu of Japanese favorites with seating… and a conveyor belt delivery system. The Whole Foods itself clocks in at a staggering 71,000 square feet of shopping space. Besides Sushiya, there’s also an in-house coffee shop (Allegro) and Italian restaurant (Rustica Minardi). As they’re want to do, Gawker liveblogged the supermarket’s opening.
