Chef Dominique Crenn announces her restaurants are now ‘meat free’
Michelin-starred chef Dominique Crenn- the first woman in the U.S to be awarded Michelin’s highest distinction of three stars, has announced that her San Francisco based restaurant Crenn Dining Group is committed to a ‘meat free policy’ moving forward. However she will be keeping seafood, eggs and dairy on her menu so her restaurant won’t be vegetarian. Her restaurants include Petit Crenn, Atelier Crenn, Bar Creen and soon to open Boutique Crenn.
“Meat is insanely complicated—both within the food system and the environment as a whole—and, honestly, it felt easier to just remove it from the menus all together. Local and sustainable fish and vegetables are just as, if not more, versatile—and delicious” screen stated.
Crenn said she made the move as an environmental statement.
“It’s ridiculous for me to expect others to do as I say, not as I do,” the statement reads. Her restaurants have been meat free since October 1st.
