Everything’s comin’ up Westside today! Chef David Anderson, of Madeleine Bistro fame, and one of The World’s Finest Vegan Chefs According To Moi will be opening a new sandwich, pasty and ice cream cafe in November. The location is currently undisclosed save for that it is “near the Westside Pavillion!” Whose boyfriend lives within walking distance of the Westside Pavillion? THIS GUY! This is the most amazing news my stomach has ever heard.
Doing a little fundraising to “make it to the finish line” anyone can donate any amount of monies via wepay.com until this Tuesday, October 18th. Donate 25 American Buckaroos and you’ll get a free dessert and a collectible button (Button? Really? I’ll pin it to my Manhattan Portage bag circa 1997). Donate $15K (if only!) and get a free dessert every month for a year, 2 invites to the private opening party, props in the shop and on the web, plus a cocktail party for 100 of your nearest and dearest (and me, pretty please) with Chef David as your caterer at your home or spot of choice. No mention of their fundraising goals, but my new goal is to get to November as quickly as possible. If you’ve never experienced the food at Madeleine Bistro (mainly because it’s a trek and currently has severely limited hours), put it at the top of your Vegan Gut List (aka as a food bucket list. Mine’s got Chicago Diner, everything in Portland, and fresh goods at the Vegan Treats Bakery). Yay, L.A!
