New vegan restaurant Hungry Angelina will open on the ground floor of the Etsy headquarters in Brooklyn this summer. While menu details have yet to be released, the 4,500-square-foot eatery is a joint effort between vegan chef Matthew Kenney and a hospitality group based in Madrid. The restaurant venue is part of “Dumbo Heights,” a lucrative real estate cluster of six buildings in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn. “Dumbo Heights is an ideal setting for our first location of Hungry Angelina, a concept designed as an all-day social environment embracing its neighbors as well as those who visit seeking a unique plant-based experience,” Kenney said. “Having personally lived in Dumbo many years ago, I could not be more excited to return to the place I experienced in the early stages of its development, which is now one of the most vibrant communities in all of New York.” Kenney’s collection of vegan restaurants span the globe and include Plant Food + Wine in Los Angeles, Althea in Chicago, Make Out in Bogota, Colombia, and Alibi in Sydney, Australia. Kenney plans to expand his NYC-based pizzeria Double Zero to locations in Boston, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles in Spring 2019, with a Hungry Angelina location scheduled to open in Long Beach, CA in Fall 2019.
