I am thrilled to pass on some great news I've had to keep to myself for months: there's a new high-end vegan restaurant opening in Los Angeles by the owners of Seed Kitchen in Venice Beach. Introducing: Seed Bistro!!! This has been Chef Eric's dream for years and I am so happy he finally made it come true. Seed Kitchen has been one of my favorite vegan restaurants and I have been fortunate to work with them on many projects - check out some of the cooking videos below, which are great examples of what you might see on the Bistro menu.
Here's a blurb about the exciting announcement from Seed's Facebook:
Seed Kitchen is proud to announce a new restaurant, Seed Bistro, located in West LA near Brentwood, with easy access from the 405 Freeway. At Seed Bistro you will enjoy a full service dining experience, lunch and dinner. Chef Eric Lechasseur and Sanae Suzuki have created exciting new organic vegan macrobiotic food, elegantly presented, with your health and enjoyment in mind. The menu includes starters, small plates, entrees, course menus and sublime desserts, organic vegan sake, beer and wines. Some wines are sold exclusively to Seed bistro.
The restaurant is projected to open in the new moon toward the end of August to the beginning of September.They haven't shared any other details about the menu, but it will be more upscale than the Kitchen's cafe style menu. And they have confirmed that there will be gluten-free items.
Of course this happens right as I move out of Los Angeles, but I am going to try to visit for the grand opening. Make sure to add this to your to do list as well!
