Miya's in New Haven recently won The 2016 WHITE HOUSE CHAMPION OF CHANGE FOR SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD award. Chef and owner, Bun Lai, is sharing a few dishes from this special dinner during New Haven's upcoming Restaurant Week, October 30-November 4. Bun says this about the menu (view White House menu below)...
In honor of every person in every part of the worldwide sustainability movement, this Miya’s NEW HAVEN RESTAURANT WEEK menu will feature a handful of my favorite award-winning sustainable seafood recipes featured at the Miya’s WHITE HOUSE CHAMPIONS of CHANGE dinner that I hosted. A top challenge to the sustainability movement is to make the healthiest food affordable and accessible to all. It is my humble assessment that our mother’s modest little restaurant has accomplished that.
Miya's was opened in 1983 by Bun's mother and was the first sustainable sushi restaurant in the world, specializing in nutrition and food access, sustainable seafood, plant-based sushi, and the utilization of edible invasive species. Miya’s New Haven Restaurant Week menu is a big bite out of the Miya’s White House Champions of Change menu.Bun wanted to share the experience that he created for the White House Champions of Change dinner with our community that supported Miya's over so many decades of experimentation and innovation.
