Vegan World Celebrity Chef Will Open a Mexican Spot in the East Village


Self-anointed “world’s leading plant-based chef” Matthew Kenney is opening two restaurants back to back this fall: He’s following up hard-to-read XYST on November 1, with the more straightforward Bar Verde, a vegan Mexican restaurant in the East Village.

This will be the third restaurant for Kenney, who rose to prominence following Irving Place’s embroiled but now defunct Pure Food + Wine. Bar Verde will debut in the East Village, next door to 00 + Co. with the same address as the vegan pizza shop he opened on Second Avenue at 4th Street last year. His partners there, Raymond Azzi and Kyle Saliba, are also co-owners of Bar Verde.
