Looks like Ady Gil may have found his next venture.
A major benefactor to the Sea Shepherd (his cash helped purchase the recently sunk ship bearing his name), Gil told LAist that his lawyer has contacted the city of Santa Monica about possibly leasing the space formerly occupied by the disgraced sushi restaurant “The Hump”. This is the same eatery that the producers of The Cove busted in an undercover sting operation for illegally serving whale meat.
If successful, Gil says he would open his own restaurant — but this time, the nosh would be 100% vegan.
We’ll keep you updated on if Gil gets the rights to lease the space. We’re pretty sure the city of Santa Monica would love to see this fiasco have a happy ending.
