Moby’s Future Vegan Eatery In Silverlake


Moby’s future vegan place

Silver lake has already many eateries, cafes, bars,… so do we need another vegan restaurant? Probably, at least this is what musician Moby thinks as he is going to open one vegan eatery so close to where I live that I may walk to this place for a brunch once in a while. The restaurant is opening in an unoccupied old Art-Deco building on Rowena avenue, and it is supposed to open by July, just in time for the summer.

According to LA.Eater, another project was supposed to open at this same place but never did because of permit problems, so let’s hope it’s not gonna be the case this time. Since the building was put on the market for $1.5 million, it’s not a cheap project!

But Moby is far from being the only musician venturing in the restaurant business, Jay-Z and Bono own the Spotted Pig in NYC’s West Village , Justin Timberlake owns Southern Hospitality also in NYC, Toby Keith has a bar called I Love This Bar and has since opened nearly a dozen locations, Queen Latifah owns a Fatburger franchise in Miami and Jimmy Buffett had the right name and the right song for opening 38 restaurants in 17 states!

But there are also a lot of failures in the music-restaurant fusion. Britney Spears’ Cajun restaurant inside Manhattan’s Dylan Hotel closed in 2002 after being only 6 months in the business, Jennifer Lopez’ Puerto Rican restaurant Madre’s in Pasadena just lasted six years, Public enemy Flavor Flav’s Friend Chicken in Clinton Iowa was open for just 4 months, Jermain Dupri’s Atlanta Café Dupri lasted a bit more (3 years) but is now closed, just like Chrissie Hynde’s VegiTerranean in Akron Ohio which closed in 2011.

Let’s hope Moby’s enterprise will not be among these failures, I just wonder whether he has more of a Jay Z-Bono-Timberlake business sense than a Spears-Lopez-Hynde’s. One thing is sure I would die rather than trying Keith or Queen Latifah’s greasy meat, but I may check out Moby’s vegan place this summer.
