Thanks for making it this far.

            We have found a great location and we need your help! We are extremely excited about opening the first full service vegan restaurant in Harlem, New York! This project is completely funded by us and we would greatly appreciate your support. Even though our goal is $20,000, of course we are looking to raise as much money as we possibly can. We ask that you please encourage your friends and family to donate. The funds we raise here will go to building our green kitchen. We have incentives for those of you who live outside of New York as well as our NY neighbors. This can only be possible with your support. Thank you so much and we can’t wait to see you all at the grand opening of our new restaurant!!!

Raw Kale Salad

            Seasoned Vegan is a family business owned and operated by mother and son, Brenda and Aaron Beener. We pride ourselves on being loyal to our vegan/vegetarian customers by maintaining a 100% vegan menu and kitchen, while creating meals that are delicious enough to satisfy the most skeptical carnivores. Our restaurant specializes in preparing a very unique type of cuisine: gourmet vegan soul food. We use the term “soul food” loosely because we are not referring exclusively to the typical cuisine of the Southern region of the United States. For us, soul food is any meal prepared by a chef who not only includes flavorful ingredients but also infuses tender love and care. With that as a founding theme, Seasoned Vegan gives typical Italian, Asian, Middle Eastern, Caribbean and American dishes a vegan, home cooked, soulful twist.

            Chef Brenda started baking cupcakes at her neighborhood community center when she was eight years old. Community has always been central to her cooking. Seasoned Vegan will be a place where students, parents and single professionals of all ages can come and enjoy a plate infused with all the motherly love you would expect from a home cooked meal. It will be a place where all people concerned about eating well can share a meal with other progressive minds, while enjoying the comfort of local artists.  We provide a place where students can come and study during their time off while enjoying a smoothie or cupcake, a place where families can have dinner and a place where people’s perspectives of vegan food are expanded to unimaginable heights.

Mac & "Cheese"

            Through Seasoned Vegan, we are connected with outreach programs in local schools and will hold cooking and entrepreneurial lessons for students in our restaurant. Our products, produce and even seasonings are all organic and we make sure to purchase from local farmers. We offer various gluten free dishes and desserts. Seasoned Vegan will have a completely green kitchen. A general push towards improving health in the community is what we are all about.
