GREAT NEWS! Though the details are still being hashed out, one thing is certain: Vegan Brunch in New Orleans will live on!
For the Nola veg community, the weekly late-morning gathering at Grit's Bar has become an institution. So when O! Vegasm chef John Morales recently announced that he may not be able to continue cranking out his breakfast hash, a shudder went through the crowd.
But as is so often the case, a problem has become an opportunity. Morales will likely rotate with other talented vegan chefs in the area such as Tim Moore of Naturally Naw'lins and Aimee from Superfood Bar on Magazine Street. Any way about it, Sunday morning at Grit's will continue to be a regular meeting spot for the vegans, vegetarians, and the veg-appreciative of New Orleans - now with different and exciting options.
Chris, the owner of Grits, expressed yesterday how pleased he is to have vegan events such as the brunch and the monthly New Orleans Vegan Drinks taking place at his establishment. He believes that it's important for people to have vegan options everywhere they go, and is happy to bring the veg element to the Lyons Street neighborhood.
Brunch takes place every Sunday at 11:00 am at Grit's Bar, located at 530 Lyons Street (at the corner of Annunciation, one block away from the river from Tchoupitoulas).
