Counterpart Vegan Recovery Effort

Chef Mimi Williams joined Counterpart Vegan in 2019 and completely transformed our restaurant into a place for vegans and non-vegans to enjoy beautiful, fresh food from straight from the ground.  She not only made her mark on the menu with made-from-scratch ingredients and original recipes, but she positively impacted our kitchen culture, and carried us through the pandemic with grace, humility, and empathy. This summer, she was made a first-time owner in the restaurant and we couldn't be happier to have her as a leader in our restaurant industry. Unfortunately, due to the complete lack of government support for restaurants during this catastrophic time and without the support of Counterpart Vegan's landlord to create new sources of revenue,  the restaurant is forced to shut down.  As part of her team and family, we are asking you to keep Mimi's dream alive and support this minority-owned business. 

Counterpart Vegan's story is not over and we hope you will support in any way you can - whether that is through donations,  letters to the landlord, or by sharing a link to this page. Chef Mimi pledges to return all donations if she is not able to reopen in a new location and if (and when) she does reopen, she will provide a gift card matching each contribution amount to each person who donated to enjoy at the new restaurant.

Thank you to all and be well!
