On Friday, Long Island Vegetarian Eatery opened its doors for business in the town of Seaford. The casual restaurant was founded by Eric Finneran and Salvatore Mignano, who were inspired to open a late night veg eatery after being frustrated by the void of options for cruelty-free dining after 10pm. LIVE, which will stay open until 3am Thursday through Sunday, features a completely vegetarian and mostly vegan menu that includes vegan jalapeño poppers, pulled-“pork” sliders, and deep-fried Oreos. Finneran, who also owns the music-space Cellar Door Studio, tells Long Island Report that the new eatery “cater[s] primarily to kids in rock bands or kids who like rock music.”
