A New York restaurateur made headlines this week after announcing that he would switch to completely plant-based menus at all of his 15 bars and restaurants!
“Ravi DeRossi is about to go all-in with veganism. The restaurateur behind Avant Garden and Death and Co. has been thinking about environmental waste and factory farming, and now, he wants to put his money where his mouth is. DeRossi plans to make as many of his 15 bars and restaurants animal-free as possible,” explains Eater.
While DeRossi plans to expand his hit vegan restaurant, Avant Garden, he is completely overhauling other venues like The Bourgeois Pig. This bar and restaurant, which serves cheese plates and charcuterie, will be transformed into LadyBird, a totally vegan wine and tapas bar.
With an ever-growing consumer interest in vegan eating, it comes as no surprise that restaurants nationwide are adding more veg options to their menus. It’s a change largely motivated by increased awareness of the egregious animal cruelty and environmental destruction caused by the meat industry.
On factory farms, animals are subjected to extreme confinement, mutilations without painkillers, and a brutal slaughter. Their short lives are filled with misery and deprivation.
