Eric Lechasseur, Chef and Owner of Venice’s casual eatery, Seed Kitchen, will soon debut his new restaurant SEED BISTRO in West Los Angeles. Poised to offer a dining experience of vegan and macrobiotic fare never before enjoyed in the Los Angeles area, Chef Eric will undertake to present a dining experience comparable to the finest in contemporary vegetarian and vegan cooking, all within the walls of his cheerful new bistro setting. Situated along the financial district of West Wilshire Boulevard, the restaurant will seat approximately forty guests, tucked neatly within cool green walls, and crowned with The Chef’s Table – a “sushi bar-esque” raised counter that seats a mere six guests. These fortunate six will be the sole guests allowed to enjoy The Chef’s Menu, an offering of 4-7 courses of haute, vegan cookery, prepared before their eyes, and served by the chef and his assistant. One day each week, this special menu offering becomes even more elaborate and extensive, as Chef Eric creates The Farmer’s Market Chef’s Table, an offering determined entirely at the whim of the chef and the momentary bounty of the market. The nightly dinner menu will include small plates (pates, olives, and perhaps Eric’s PETA award winning Faux Gras), vegetarian sushi, and salads, as well as much more elaborate entrée offerings such Paella, Flageolet cassoulet, and squash risotto.
Seed Bistro will also serve lunch, although likely a much lighter fare of healthful offerings, reminiscent of Seed Kitchen.
Seed Bistro enjoys a beer/wine license, and will offer a well edited, boutique selection of wines by the glass and bottle, craft beers, and sake.
SEED BISTRO is tentatively scheduled to open to the public the last week of August, 2011. Further details, hours of operation, menus, and interior photos to arrive soon.
SEED BISTRO is located at 11917 Wilshire Boulevard
