Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi To Open Vegan Restaurant

Celebrity vegan couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are planning to open a vegan restaurant, The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

Along with singer Chrissie Hynde and producer Steve Bing, the pair will be investing in an animal-product-free eating establishment in Los Angeles’s San Fernando Valley.

DeGeneres A Passionate Animal Activist

DeGeneres is well known for her animal activism. As Care2′s Megan Drake wrote here, DeGeneres was the spokesperson for Farm Sanctuary’s annual Adopt-A-Turkey Project last year.  This is a program where, for a onetime $30 donation, anyone can sponsor a turkey.  In return, you receive a certificate with a color photo of your adopted friend.

And it turns out that she’ll be back again next month to serve as Farm Sanctuary’s spokesperson, inviting everyone to save, not eat, a turkey this Thanksgiving season.

Then there’s her new website, Going Vegan with Ellen, launched in August, that includes recipes, frequently asked questions, resources and info on celebrities who have gone vegan.

What Will The New Restaurant Look Like?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, vegan chef Tal Ronnen will do the menu. Ronnen catered the couple’s vegan wedding and is also known for preparing meals for a 21-day vegan cleanse undertaken by Oprah Winfrey in 2008.  And designer Waldo Fernandez, who has created interiors for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, will be creating the space.

No word yet on what type of pricing to expect!

"I love Ellen. Did you see her stint in Justin Beibers video? it was hilarious! "....No, Cynthia, but I did see her on one of the late night talk shows, I think Jimmy Kimmel. He asked her about the fact that Oprah has left the same time slot, so her show has less competition. She cracked me up when she said, "Yeah, maybe I will call in sick tomorrow". She is, indeed, her own person. She does what she wants, dresses the way she wants, etc. Loved the fact she's very pretty, has a beautiful face, can wear that short "cupie" hair do (wish I could), and bright red SOCKS!

OMG, Marie, Pego is in complete support of Ellen's right to open a restaurant and it's a vegan restaurant. So am I. Why do you attack Pego for doing that? Are you so blinded to "your cause" that you have no tolerance for anyone else who isn't exactly like you, do exactly as you suggest and "advise" and nothing but? So WHAT if Ellen happens to have a small part of her life involved with an organization that does not have your personal approval? Don't buy CG products (I'm betting you don't anyway, and I'm biting my lip to say why), but fact is, Ellen is vegan. She's got the fame, money and power to promote a retail (public) establishment that is "near and dear" to her heart. Eat there (you would have a very long commute) or don't. Leave her (Ellen) alone. She's a great person.
