While we heard the rumors earlier in May, there are now new details proving that the vegan eatery announced last year by Ellen DeGeneres, wife Portia de Rossi, “Pretenders” singer Chrissie Hynde, and Producer Steve Bing have been (hopefully temporarily) scrapped.

The new business was supposed to open up earlier this year in the space once occupied by  tapas joint “Bokado” in Studio City, CA. It was to be designed by Waldo Fernandez, with a menu courtesy of famed vegan chef Tal Ronnen.

According to Eater LA, Bokado owner Frank Leon has confirmed that the vegan restaurant plans have fallen through. In its place will be a gastropub called The Village. Despite serving dishes like Beef & Lamb Sliders with Capers Remoulade and Pancetta Wrapped Tuna Tartar, Leon also plans to honor Ellen’s vision “by serving a few of her favorite vegan dishes.”

Bummer – but hopefully this dream team of vegan foodies will reunite at some point to make such a plant-based gourmet destination a reality.

    Because the world needs one more fucking gastropub. *rolls eyes*

Veld donates money to farm animals and also serves them

Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld.

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
