About ついて

Established in 2012 in the historical Lower East Side Essex Street Market, Ni is a family-run Japanese deli focussed on offering nutritious vegetarian, vegan, and macrobiotic dishes.

Understanding that allergies are a real concern, we are committed to serving gluten-free and allergy-free Japanese foods that are not only delicious and hearty, but also healthy. The humble bento box is Ni’s staple for our rotating selection of locally sourced, traditionally-prepared seasonal ingredients. Ni Deli also offers products such as matcha green teas, tonics, dried foods and the occasional vintage craft object from Japan.

With a passion for cooking, we love to share our knowledge in the healing power of ingredients through our foods.
