Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi opening a vegan restaurant



tbd-portiaderossi110111.jpgAnother celebrity restaurant is headed to the streets, now that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are opening their own place. If that isn't trendy enough, they're making it vegan, quadrupling the chances that The Juice* will never go there.

DeGeneres and de Rossi are joining singer Chrissie Hynde and producer Stever Bing to invest in a place headed for Ventura Boulevard in L.A. Chef Tal Ronnen will be planning the menu, the Hollywood Reporter says. They haven't named it yet, but we suggest calling it The Agony of De-Meat.

The move comes just after DeGeneres started the website Going Vegan with Ellen, in which supplies FAQs for prospective vegans and interviews with celebrities who have kicked the animal product habit. Because hey, if you wanna tell Mike Tyson he's being weird, that's all you.
