Washoku’s Sidewalk Bentos are Back on 49th

DSC00589The sidewalk bentos are back on 49th Street btw. 6+7th. This may have happened a long time ago, but I hadn’t seen anybody out there since the last guy got arrested. The seller is there from Noon to 12:30 p.m. every day with a selection of bentos, sushi,¬†and rice balls from the newly opened Washoku Cafe on 37th btw. Mad+5th. I believe you can call ahead your order, or just stop by and see what extra stuff they have. They’re not as good as the Chiyoda bento boxes that used to be for sale in that same spot, but they’re good enough- especially if you don’t feel like walking all the way down to 41st or 37th.


  • I’ve seen these folks on their way to their spots in the morning and have only just now realized what they were pushing…..I usually see them on 37th between madison and park… dont’ know where they’re going.

  • Sidewalk sushi…but not Walgreen’s. I tell ya, Zach…

  • What’s with the guy who stands on Broadway & Exchange in the FiDi? Is this a similar sort of deal?
