Moby chats with the L.A. Times on his much-anticipated vegan restaurant, Little Pine, which will open its doors in Silver Lake, California on Nov. 19.

A decade after calling it quits with his first vegan restaurant Teany in New York, the musician is finally taking his vegan palette to the west coast in a venture that will be 100% organic and in his words, “effortless vegan.”

Moby, who celebrates his 28th anniversary as a vegan this coming Thanksgiving, is opening the restaurant with chef Kristyne Starling. The menu elevates stereotypical vegan fare that “doesn’t involve Birkenstocks and mashed yeast,” Moby told the L.A. Times. Featured food items will include a panzanella; farro walnut salad with pomegranate; Mediterranean salad with olives and avocado; meatballs and polenta; and a trio of stuffed shells, which is a favorite of the singer’s.

“When I was growing up, around 8 or 9, my favorite food was stuffed shells,” Moby said. “My mom would take those big semolina shells and stuff them with ricotta. So we are doing our version of that.”

The restaurant is opening in L.A.’s hipster ‘hood, Silver Lake, which probably explains why Moby decorated the space with midcentury modern flourishes, pine accents and throw pillows, alongside a small retail space in the front.

“It’s really absurdly hand-curated,” said Moby. “Like the criteria for choosing stuff is, ‘Would I want it in my house?’ It’s just art books from friends of mine who are artists, some candles that smell nice, teas, soaps. Just basically if I would have it in my house or give it as a gift, then I’m happy to sell it.”

And, no, the restaurant’s soundtrack will not be a loop of Moby’s own hits. Instead, a playlist mixing old standards and classical faves with modern hits will play throughout the day.

“I want mornings to be very calm,” said Moby. “If I go out for breakfast, as much as I love Jay Z, I don’t want to hear Jay Z in a vegan restaurant at 8:30 in the morning. I’m known for being associated with the dance world, but there will be no banging EDM tracks in here.”

Little Pine will be opened seven days a week, from 7:30 a.m. to midnight. We can’t wait to visit the next time we’re in L.A.
