New LA Vegan Restaurant

A new high-end vegan restaurant set to open in Los Angeles by the owners of Seed Kitchen.

Owners of Seed Kitchen, an organic, macrobiotic vegan restaurant in Venice Beach, Calif., are slated to open Seed Bistro, an upscale dining establishment in West Los Angeles in September. Chef Eric Lechasseur and Sanae Suzuki plan on serving similar creative cuisine as Seed Kitchen, a grab-and-go dining experience, which serves grain bowls, burgers, and paninis. Seed Bistro will have a decidedly more full-service restaurant atmosphere, offering small plates, entrées, a tasting menu, and desserts. Owners Lechasseur and Suzuki also offer macrobiotic cooking classes and have written several cookbooks together.
