Ladybird

OPENED16 DAYS AGO

Restaurateur and vegan mogul, Ravi DeRossi has decided to revamp and move his restaurant Ladybird which opened last summer to a bigger space in the East Village and has partnered with Moby to do so. The musician, DJ and animal rights activist behind LA’s popular, Little Pine, has returned to the NYC dining scene after his Lower East Side spot, Teany closed in 2015.

The Spot:

The all-vegan restaurant is now located at 111 East 7th Street. The move happens less than a year of opening the original Ladybird in Greenwich Village. DeRossi has been trying to convert his empire of 15 restaurants and bars into animal-free businesses and now has Moby as an official investor in his endeavour.

The Food:

The team enlisted the help of consulting chef, Derrick Styczek, to deliver an experience that he describes as being “designed and structured in the way of a traditional sushi menu.” Options include Brussels sprouts with endive, apple, quinoa, and a soy-truffle vinaigrette, kale with pickled daikon, radish, puffed rice, and black garlic, and a breaded and fried eggplant with tomato sauce, basil, and vegan ricotta. They also have vegan fondues like Chardonnay and artichoke, mushroom and onion and sun-dried tomato and basil all served with bread and a side of accoutrements.

The Drinks:

Jane Danger (of Mother of Pear and Cienfuegos) and Alla Lapushchik (of Post Office and OTB) are heading up the cocktail menu which includes drinks made with a range of vegetable juices and other natural infusions.

The Damage:

Dishes range from $9 to $14 with larger sharing plates ranging from $18 to $42.

In A Nutshell:

If you’re vegan and looking for a better offering that doesn’t have a mushroom burger in sight then Ladybird is your place. Head to DeRossi’s cocktail bar Coup after for a nightcap and help fund organizations threatened by the Trump administration’s actions.
