The owner behind popular NYC vegan eatery by CHLOE sues restaurant group for attempting to open meat-serving restaurants in her name.

New York City-based chef and restaurateur Chloe Coscarelli has filed a lawsuit in a Manhattan civil court against Jimmy Haber—her financial partner in restaurant group Esquared Hospitality—in an effort to protect her name from being used to open and promote meat-serving restaurants.
