Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi to Open Vegan Restaurant

Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi have plans to open a vegan restaurant on Ventura Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley, reports the Hollywood Reporter.

Other investors include rocker Chrissie Hynde and entrepreneur Steve Bing. Hynde's Ohio vegan restaurant, the Vegiterranean, closed in early October.

Tal Ronnen, author of The

Conscious Cook, has been named executive chef.  Ronnen was a frequent

guest of Oprah Winfrey's and catered DeGeneres' wedding to de Rossi.

DeGeneres, a known vegan, has her no-meat blog, Going Vegan With Ellen,

in which she shares recipes and names other vegan celebrities, including

Carrie Underwood, President Bill Clinton, Alec Baldwin, and Alicia

Silverstone. Ellen's wife, de Rossi, is also vegan.
