Did Ellen's Vegan Restaurant Deal Fall Through?
We’re getting word that it may have happened – but, as with anything, we add question marks so, go ahead and treat the news with a grain of salt.
Earlier this year, it was leaked that the new gourmet vegan venture – a partnership between Ellen, wife Portia de Rossi, “Pretenders” singer Chrissie Hynde, and Producer Steve Bing – would be shacking up in the tapas joint “Bokado” in Studio City, CA.
Renowned vegan chef Tal Ronnen was/is organizing the menu. Waldo Fernandez was/is slated to be the interior designer.
If it did die, damn – we were looking for this combo of influentials to create one hell of an awesome gourmet vegan mecca. Let’s hope we’re wrong.
