Charlotte, NC transplant Chef Velvet is relocating her Hollywood restaurant, The VTree, to Silver Lake. Originally operating at Yamashiro then transitioning to the Chinese Theater in Hollywood, this vegan soul food eatery has gone through several adjustments since opening in May 2020. The new brick-and-mortar location is scheduled to launch on March 13 with the original restaurant’s staple items in addition to a new Healthy Soul menu. This mash-up includes red velvet cupcakes, fried shrimp, mac ‘n’ cheese, black-eyed pea burger patties, and more.
To raise funds for the upcoming location, The VTree is offering a deal on gift card pre-orders. For every $20 gift card purchased now until March 13, the business will send the purchaser an additional $10 gift card.
