Actor Kevin Bacon and His Wife Enjoy Vegan Fare

Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick dined at Peacefood Cafe, a plant-based eatery in New York City, for Valentine’s Day.

There may be less bacon in actor Kevin Bacon’s house than his name would suggest. In 2012, Bacon told New York magazine that he and his partner enjoy cooking, and that their favorite dish was kale salad. This week, the couple celebrated Valentine’s Day by stopping into Peacefood Cafe in New York City for a vegan lunch. The restaurant personalized a heart-shaped cookie for the pair, adorably inscribing their names in chocolate frosting. The actor took to social media to tweet about the special outing and the Peacefood sweets. His new show, The Following, airs on Fox on Monday nights.
