Michelin-Star Restaurant Lazy Bear To Go 100% Vegan For Nine Days In Sustainability Drive

Michelin-starred restaurant Lazy Bear is to turn its menu 100% vegan for nine days in a bid to become more sustainable.

The eatery, located in San Francisco’s Bay Area, does offer plant-based dishes upon request.

During the week-long ‘challenge’, Lazy Bear will also be raising funds for Zero Foodprint – a nonprofit aiming to build a ‘renewable food system rooted in healthy soil’.

‘How we can be better’

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Chef-Owner David Barzelay said: ” [Donating] doesn’t force us to confront our policies or practices… This is part of a larger effort to continuously reexamine how we can be better.”

Speaking about creating an all-vegan menu, Barzelay added: “It’s always the case that when you have constraints, it can be freeing creatively. It forces you to focus in a way that you end up coming up with things you otherwise wouldn’t come up with.

‘Awesome tools’

“[Veganism] is taking some tools out of the toolbox, but there are still a lot of awesome tools left.”

The vegan menu will be held from April 8 -18, with tickets costing $199-$221. Details of the menu have not yet been announced.
