Ellen DeGeneres and her actress wife Portia have announced that they are going to open a new meat/animal product-free restaurant in California.

The vegan couple are investing in the new (as yet unnamed) business together with The Pretenders’ singer Chrissie Hynde and film/music producer Steve Bing. The restaurant will open on Ventura Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley.

Earlier this year, DeGeneres launched a website Going Vegan with Ellen which features recipes, FAQs, resources, and information about other celebrities who have gone vegan e.g. Bill Clinton, Alanis Morissette and KD Lang.

According to Hollywood Reporter, vegan chef Tal Ronnen (The Conscious Cook) will be in charge of the menu. “Ronnen catered the lesbian super-couple's vegan wedding feast and also is known for preparing meals for a 21-day vegan cleanse undertaken by Oprah Winfrey in 2008.”
