Mooi Raw Opens

Vegan chef expands his cruelty-free catering company with the opening of Mooi restaurant in Los Angeles.

Tomorrow, vegan restaurant Mooi opens in Los Angeles, Calif., serving gourmet, plant-based food. The eatery is the latest expansion for the Mooi brand, which began as a cruelty-free catering company that has expanded into selling packaged vegan foods. Mooi will serve many of the same dishes offered by its catering service and use locally grown produce when available. In early May, the restaurant partnered with food blogger Quarrygirl to host an ice cream contest to determine a new dairy-free flavor. The winner was "cracker jack," a flavor made with salted caramel ice cream, with peanuts, and peanut butter swirl.
