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.

    I’m excited for a new vegan restaurant – I hope they will include gluten free options on the menu, and not fall to the mushroom, mushroom, mushroom menu as so many of LA’s vegan restaurant’s do. Some of us have allergies! If they have a good menu we’ll make the drive from the westside regularly!

“Hero cow” becomes media darling to non-vegans everywhere

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

THIS WEEK IN THE VEGANVERSE III

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.

Please stop attempting to express love through animal exploitation

While I’m a huge sucker for the sweet stuff, I can’t escape the seasonal dread of seeing lovers carelessly link up gestures of romance with animal exploitation.
