Famous vegans Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi are providing their animal product-free brethren with one more dining option, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The blonde power couple are going in on a vegan restaurant with The Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde and producer Steve Bing. The new L.A. eatery will be located on Ventura Boulevard in California’s San Fernando Valley.
Vegan chef Tal Ronnen, who catered Ellen and Portia’s wedding, will create the restaurant’s menu. Designer Waldo Fernandez, who’s worked for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, will do the space’s interior.
The “Ellen” host is making veganism easier in more ways than one. In August, DeGeneres launched the website Going Vegan with Ellen, a resource that includes FAQs, recipes, and info on other celebs who have gone vegan (Mike Tyson, Alicia Silverstone, Bill Clinton, Lea Michele).
Unlike vegetarians, vegans abstain from all animal-related products, including butter, gelatin (which is in beer, marshmallows, Jell-O), honey, milk and eggs.
