Well that was quick.
Less than four months after it was revealed that Ellen DeGeneres, her wife actress Portia de Rossi, “Pretenders” singer Chrissie Hynde, and Producer Steve Bing were all going in on a new vegan eatery in LA, sources are saying the venture is almost ready to launch.
According to Eater LA, the tapas joint Bokado in Studio City, CA is currently undergoing a “reconceptualization”. Once it comes out of its cocoon at the end of February, it’s expected to be reborn as Ellen and Co.’s new animal-free eatery.
As mentioned earlier, renowned vegan chef Tal Ronnen, who also catered Ellen and Portia’s 2008 wedding, will be organizing the menu. Waldo Fernandez will be the interior designer.
Are you excited? We are – and can’t wait to sample some dishes soon! More to come.
