Monday, January 5th, 2009

News Flash for all Pizza Lovers – a new, all-vegetarian pizzeria (with vegan options) has opened in Mill Valley.

While we don’t know much yet (their website appears to be a work in progress still), we do know we love pizza and all the vegan fixings!

$2,299 for Animal Place!

Friday, June 20th, 2008

For some, it was just another lovely June evening in Berkeley.  For the standing room only crowd gathered at the D. King Gallery on June 17th, it was much more.  Animal Place, an animal sanctuary & education center in Vacaville, is raising $2.7 million to relocate to a larger and better space.   We wanted to do more than just hope they made it, we wanted to help, so earlier this month, we announced our vegan pizza party & boutique fun(d)raiser event.

Three weeks later, we’re pleased to announce that $2,299.30 was raised for Animal Place, and the critters like Frank, Murray and Ernie who call it home.

Review: The Usual Suspects Cafe

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

I am happy to report that I am optimistic about this new vegetarian restaurant with a heavy emphasis on vegan food. It’s in San Francisco on Broadway St, just off Montgomery, and probably trekkable from Montgomery BART if you’ve got good leg muscles or are allured by vegan food. The Usual Suspects Cafe, opened by Bob Bosco, is making a splash with local veg folks already. It’s a diner, it’s familiar foods made vegan, it’s great desserts, it’s talented chefs cooking with passion & pride, and they’ve got a commitment to organic, too. (In passing, they mentioned a big percentage of their food is organic; I don’t remember the exact number.)

Just hours after eating there last nite, I wrote the official description review in the Ultimate Guide:

Styled like an American diner, this new face in the SF restaurant scene offers a variety of vegan favorites like pizzas, sandwiches, burger, falafel, lasagna .. and they make their own seitan and sauces/salad dressings/cashew cheese. And, yes, vegan desserts, too. In an interesting twist, there are a few pizzas made with dairy, then it says everything is vegan except items which are marked that can be made vegetarian. Room upstairs available for private parties.
