Kickstarter for New Vegan Restaurant in Brooklyn

Heirloom Vegan Eatery is raising money for a permanent location of its restaurant start-up.

Two Brooklyn-based friends and longtime food-industry workers are hoping to fulfill their dream of opening a vegan restaurant—ideally in time for their impending 10-year high school reunion—and are turning to fundraising platform Kickstarter to help them raise $2,000 in start-up costs. Last Sunday, the pair debuted their cruelty-free fare under the name Heirloom Vegan Eatery at the summer Vegan Shop-Up market. The event gave attendees a sneak peak at Heirloom’s prospective menu, which includes dishes such as Southern-style fried chicken sandwiches, seitan gyros, and pulled pork sliders. The Heirloom team has until July 4 to obtain the funds for their project.
