Desert Rose Restaurant with Cruzer Pizza
1700 N. Hillhurst Ave
Los Angeles, CA. 90027
This is a great example of how a simple action can take on a life of its own. As part of Farm Sanctuary’s Veg for Life Campaign, Michelle Sass (California Advocacy Organizer for Farm Sanctuary), has been working with Cruzer Pizza, a local take-out and delivery restaurant which has resulted in a tremendous establishment outreach success story!
What began as a conversation has resulted in this: Cruzer Pizza has removed veal from their restaurant and replaced it with a large menu of compassionate vegan pizzas! And not just your average “run of the mill” vegan pizzas either. What makes them so special is that Cruzer Pizza is the first establishment in the Western U.S. to be serving the revolutionary Daiya vegan “cheese”!
According to Michelle, thanks to your patronage the restaurant has more than doubled their sales and the owners are seriously considering becoming L.A.’s first 100% vegan pizzeria. So please continue to show your support.
Desert Rose Restaurant is on the same property as Cruzer Pizza and they will be serving the Vegan Drinks crowd Cruzer pizzas and drinks. There will be a vegan menu and a beautiful outdoor area with seating and yes, you can mingle from table to table or to the indoor bar.
Please note that Desert Rose is not a veg*n restaurant but they’ve been extremely accommodating and it’s the only place Vegan Drinks can fit their large group AND eat Daiya cheese pizzas.
Desert Rose also has a popular organic vodka and they whip up some refreshing cucumber martinis.
It’s always a great time with the Vegan Drinks crowd, so don’t miss it!
