Vegan Soul Food Restaurant Cadence Expands Its NYC Restaurant Space

Restaurateur Ravi DeRossi is giving his popular vegan soul food spot a little makeover—here are the latest details.

This fall, NYC’s Cadence is expanding its location in the East Village. The owner and restaurateur, Ravi DeRossi, plans to add 24 more seats inside the space next door to where Cadence is currently housed. DeRossi’s decision to expand Cadence was inspired by the restaurant’s turnout, which reaches max capacity almost every night of the week. The restaurant will continue to serve its popular plant-based soul food dishes that were developed by Executive Chef Shenarri Greens, including classics such as Southern fried lasagna, jerk mac ‘n’ cheese, and of course, creamy, heart-warming grits!

“From the very beginning we had a strong belief in Shenarri and her capabilities as a chef, and knew that we’d eventually need more space,” DeRossi told VegOut.

Overthrow Hospitality

Cadence is part of Ravi DeRossi’s Overthrow Hospitality, an NYC-based vegan hospitality group that operates popular plant-based eateries such as Avant Garden, Amor y Amargo, and Ladybird. Last Spring, DeRossi also added vegan Mexican concept Etérea as well as Soda Club—a vegan pasta bar—to his growing list of restaurants in the East Village.

Ladybird

In addition to expanding Cadence, DeRossi also plans to expand Ladybird, a vegan tapas and wine bar. The restaurant will take over the space where the restaurateur’s plant-based Filipino concept—Saramsam—was previously located, but closed in May due to unforeseen circumstances. The second location is set to open within the next three weeks, and will feature plant-based small plates such as Buffalo maitake buns, green pea fritters, and truffle mac ‘n’ cheese.

Cadence is located at 122 East 7th St, New York, NY 10009. For more information on the expansion, visit overthrowhospitality.com/venues/cadence or check out @cadence.newyork on Instagram.
