Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – Sure, anyone can star-gaze on Broadway and in Beverly Hills, but since celebrities now can’t go even one meal without something vegan, you can catch them popping up at animal-friendly restaurants all across the U.S. That’s why PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—has put together its picks for the Top Five Star-Studded Vegan Restaurants that aren’t located in the Big Apple or Hollywood, and Fort Lauderdale’s Sublime Restaurant & Bar has won the Oscar.
Known for its vegan caviar and award-winning apple pie, Sublime is a favorite destination spot for not only Sir Paul McCartney and Alicia Silverstone but also Pamela Anderson and Alec Baldwin; music icons Gloria Estefan, Joan Jett, Iggy Pop, Tommy Lee, and Chrissie Hynde; sports figure John Salley; and TV stars Joanna Krupa and Elisabetta Canalis.
“With a menu of tasty favorites, including key lime cheesecake and house-made mushroom ravioli filled with cashew cream, Sublime is the place for health-conscious and animal-friendly celebrities who crave vegan foods,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “None of the hot spots on PETA’s list should wait a New York minute to get a Hollywood star when their food is super-delicious and kind to animals, the environment, and people’s arteries.”
Each winner will receive a framed certificate. PETA’s other picks include Green New American Vegetarian in Phoenix, where icons Kendrick Lamar, Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy, and other stars dine. Woodland’s Vegan Bistro in Washington, D.C.—where Kanye West, Beyoncé, Kal Penn, and Ginuwine have all been spotted—made the list, as did Chicago’s The Chicago Diner, which has served, among others, Lady Gaga, Joan Jett, and Ellen DeGeneres, and Seattle’s Plum Bistro, whose patrons include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Casey Affleck, and Joaquin Phoenix.
