Spring is in almost here, New York, and you know what that means! Love is in the air, and a sexy new restaurant is moving to Brooklyn to share that love with the world – a love of food, that is!
Slutty Vegan is a popular new vegan restaurant founded in 2018 by entrepreneur and visionary Pinky Cole. Based out of Atlanta Georgia, Slutty Vegan has been flipping the script on vegan food by taking healthy dishes and making them fun and exciting with powerful flavors and a risqué aesthetic. The restaurant has become exceptionally popular among young people thanks to its cheekily named burgers like One Night Stand, a vegan bacon and cheese burger loaded with onions, lettuce, tomato, and Pinky’s signature “slut sauce,” as well as more unusual burgers like the Heaux Boy, which features vegan shrimp tossed in a New Orleans style batter.
By making vegan food sexy and fun, Pinky hopes to guide the vegan revolution in a more relatable and accessible direction, exposing new audiences to her creations who might have never even considered eating vegan burgers. Healthier for the body and earth than traditional beef burgers, Slutty Vegan is proving to the world that indulging in your hedonistic senses doesn’t have to be a bad thing.
While Cole has been steadily building her empire out of Atlanta since 2018, she will now be returning to New York to bring her Slutty Vegan restaurant to Brooklyn. Moving into the space at 690 Fulton, Slutty Vegan will be replacing Broccoli Bar, a popular plant-based restaurant that was known by its proximity to the famous Commandante Biggie Mural. Cole, who opened her very first restaurant in Harlem – Pinky’s Jamaican & American Restaurant, describes the move as a “Full circle moment.”
“It’s an honor to be opening a concept in such an established space, just down the street from where Biggie Smalls grew up, and to bring more delicious food to the Brooklyn community,” said Cole. Since opening her restaurant in 2018, Cole has acquired an impressive roster of “sluttified” fans, including well-known celebrities like Tiffany Haddish, Snoop Dogg, Taraji P. Henson, Tyler Perry, and Justin Timberlake.
Not content to simply own of the fastest-growing vegan chains in the country, Cole is a dedicated philanthropist as well, and shares all of her success through the Pinky Cole Foundation. Established as a nonprofit organization, the Pinky Cole Foundation sets out to empower generations of color to win financially in life and in the pursuit of their entrepreneurial dreams. Cole is ecstatic to be bringing her vision to the good people of Brooklyn, and if the status of her clientele is any indicator, Slutty Vegan is sure to take the city by storm once it arrives.
To celebrate the new launch, Slutty Vegan teamed up with Power’s Naturi Naughton to create an exciting new promo for the concept. While you wait for Slutty Vegan to open on Fulton later this Spring, you can follow the page on Instagram for all the updates along the way.
