Meat may be murder, but it always appears to be our vegan restaurants that die. This time it’s the passing of the Leaf Organics chain that has L.A.’s premier vegan blogger QuarryGirl mourning in black. She reports that the restaurant’s Culver City location will meat meet the screaming knife on February 13th. Though the restaurant was comfortably, kindly, cheerily serving guests in Culver, their death comes for a reason, namely a failed expansion to Sherman Oaks which is being cited as the main cause for closing. The restaurant will also stop selling its pre-made products at Whole Foods and local stores, but the owner is still offering raw foods courses and prior to the closing, will offer discounts on dining.
