Tabitha Brown is known on the Internet for keeping her followers updated on delicious vegan recipes. Now, that will change as her Los Angeles fans are in for a treat.
In an Instagram post, the actress and TikTok star announced that she will be opening her first vegan restaurant. She also revealed it will be the second location of Kale My Name, a popular vegan restaurant in Chicago, where she is now a co-owner.
After falling in love with the restaurant after coming to town to film for “The Chi,” she teamed up with the owner, Nemanja Nekac Golubović, to bring the meals, energy and experience from the Midwest to now the West coast.
“Family it’s officially happening!!! I’m opening my very first restaurant,” she wrote on her Instagram post. “I’m so thankful and grateful to bring Kale My Name to Los Angeles as a co-owner. Y’all it’s about to be Very Good!!! Stay tuned for more updates on opening day!”
Kale My Name will be her first experience as a restaurateur, but the vegan influencer has faith that it’s only the beginning of her journey.
“If you have an idea or a dream, a thought, honey, do something with it,” Brown said. “This is about to be my first restaurant experience, something I never even thought I could do, but here we are. A great partner, a restaurant that I love and believe in, here in California. And I ain’t gon’ stop here. That’s what my spirit’s saying, ‘Tab this is the first, but not the last.’”
The announcement of Brown’s first restaurant comes in after becoming a New York Times best seller for her book — “Feeding the Soul (Because It’s My Business): Finding Our Way to Joy, Love, and Freedom.”
As previously reported by AfroTech, in her book she shares with readers her rise to stardom, as well as gems of wisdom and lessons from her journey.
According to Essence, Tabitha Brown is eyeing a location in Encino, CA, and looking at dates to possibly open its doors.
