Veggie vanishing act
We thought it was temporarily shuttered while school was out for the summer, but U of T's Radical Roots has closed for good.
According to Dermot Brennan, program director of the International Student Centre where the vegan co-op kitchen was located, the Roots crew didn't renew their contract with the college. A new veggie venue in the same space should be up and running by January.
Pulp changes hands
Marie Crawford has sold Pulp Kitchen (see listing, page 42), her wildly popular east-side vegetarian haven. New owners Alysa Qi and Mac Liang promise everything will stay exactly the same: menu, chefs and servers. Smart move.
Vegetarian book beat
The Toronto Vegetarian Association has just released the 07 edition of its annual directory of veggie venues. Pick up a free copy at most local herbivore haunts or download it at www.veg.ca/directory.
