NYC’s Kate’s Joint Facing Eviction

The vegetarian restaurant has launched an Indiegogo campaign to cover the cost of its back rent.

Landmark vegetarian restaurant and bar Kate’s Joint in New York City is turning to community-fundraising platform Indiegogo in an effort to settle its debt and stave off eviction. The East Village eatery, established in 1996 by owner Kate Halpern, is renowned for its vegan buffalo wings—the only non-meat items to make it onto New York Magazine’s list of the city’s five best chicken wings. Halpern hopes to raise $30,000 by March 29, all of which will go toward paying back rent. If her fundraising goal is met, Halpern plans to launch several new ventures aimed at increasing business, including turning part of the restaurant into a vegan and gluten-free bakery.
