Let’s help kickstart Seasoned Vegan in Harlem

20120610-214829.jpg
Who was inspired by the recent  New York Daily News article about The Beeners and their effort to open Harlem’s first full-service, vegan soul food restaurant? I certainly was! According to the article, Chef Brenda Beener and her son Aaron (mother and son), plan to open their vegan restaurant in August on Frederick Douglass Blvd. near 116th St., which is also known as Harlem’s restaurant row. But before they can open their establishment there is some major financing they must have in place, around $250k. The Beeners have turned to Kickstarter.com (and to us) to help them reach that sum.

There are various donation levels on their Kickstarter page from $5 to $500. If you are interested in helping Seasoned Vegan in Harlem become a reality, make your donation here.

  1. Does anyone know what’s happening and when will Seasoned Vegan restaurant will open? Heard so much about it and now…?

    • Apparently they are still working on opening up their place. On Sept 17, the owners of Seasoned Vegan notified their backers through Kickstarter saying they’re getting close to opening, however it’s taken longer than expected.
