Plant-based sushi restaurant House of Vegano has built a following with its menu of vegan sushi, ramen, and dumplings, operating out of a space shared with The Body Electric Athletic Company at 655 31st St. S. Later this year, however, the restaurant is planning to move into a new space at 1990 Central Ave. in St. Pete’s Grand Central District.
“The look and feel is going to be different,” owner Thalia Tatham told What Now on Wednesday. “Inside The Body Electric, there was already a framework we needed to fit into. This is going to be what I’ve always envisioned House of Vegano to be.”
The 2,500-square-foot space will seat about fifty people, Tatham says—and the space isn’t the only thing that’s growing. The expanded menu will include not only a bigger selection of Tatham’s vegan sushi rolls but also more ramen and dumpling varieties and a selection of desserts. There will also be a lunch menu, offered from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a price point of $17-20.
“We’re also going to serve beer, wine, and sake,” Tatham said. “And we’ll add cocktails later.”
Located at the intersection of Central Avenue North and 20th Street South, House of Vegano will join a culinary community that includes food and drink spots like Cage Brewing and Hunger+Thirst.
