Moby Is Opening An Organic Vegan Restaurant In Silver Lake
Moby is opening up a vegan restaurant in Silver Lake called Little Pine. When the vegan eatery opens this summer at 2870 Rowena Ave., it'll be called Little Pine and feature seasonal, organic cuisine, LA Weekly reports. The kitchen will be helmed by chef Anne Thornton, previously of Waverly Inn and the host of Dessert First on the Food Network. The menu will include things like a mushroom leek pot pie, cauliflower steak and a lemon mint pea pâté.
The restaurant will begin by serving dinner, but will soon expand into earlier meals as well as brunch on the weekends. Little Pine will also have a store where customers can buy vegan cookbooks and other related items, Eater LA reports.
The building itself was once supposed to be a restaurant called Silver Take, but it never opened. Studio Hus' Tatum Kendrick will be designing Little Pine to combine a "laid-back California spirit with a modern riff on nature."
Moby mentions the restaurant while cooking vegan chili for a segment on the Hallmark Channel. At about eight minutes into the video, he says that Thornton became a vegan after deciding that the type of food she typically made was unhealthy. He also covers Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire."
