Fusion announced that the Ravi DeRossi Restaurant empire went vegan on January 1, 2016! Yes you heard right! Every single one of his 15 of his New York City restaurant's is now vegan! That's some of the finest wine'n dine spots in New York folks and they are now all cruelty free hot spots for you to enjoy fancy vegan fare.
DeRossi does not wish to convert everyone to a plant-based diet, but wants people to have an amazing experience, while eating less meat, even if only one meal a month. Personally, he wants to save and rescue as many animals as possible, which he practices through adoption of dogs and cats, but DeRossi is not preachy about his mission.
Seeing plant-based food as the better way for humans and animals, DeRossi recently pledged to remove all animal products from all his restaurants and bars.
I don’t have to put my morals aside to be a businessman. I don’t have to put my ethics aside to do everything I want to do
