GustOrganics Goes Vegan with Chef Diego Castro!

GustOrganics Goes Vegan with Chef Diego Castro! by Kiki Adami

About This Campaign

It's never too late to change. We will show the rest of the world that you can become MORE CONSCIENTIOUS AND MORE DELICIOUS without going out of business!

The idea behind GustOrganics: Vegan Bistro

GustOrganics started 7 years ago with the genius concept of serving all the favorites of the standard American diet - hamburgers, mac 'n' cheese, french fries, etc. - while eating only 100% organic! And while many people appreciate our grass-fed beef and free-range chicken, we feel that we have a responsibility to go beyond organic to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible, all while feeding people amazingly delicious and nutritious meals. Many people realize the huge impact that meat production has on the environment, and we've made it our mission to actively bring awareness to how we can all change a little bit to save our planet, and ultimately, ourselves.


We also have the only 100% organic bar in the world, which puts us in a unique category. Last year we received the highest rating from the Green Restaurant Association, and now with a 100% plant-based menu and organic bar, we just might be the poster child for the greenest restaurant in the world. Your donation will make this a reality!



What's on the menu? 


Chef Diego Castro will create our menu! Diego is the most well-known vegan chef in South America, having experience in Pure Food and Wine, Rockin' Raw, and LLamaVerde in Buenos Aires. He is the executive chef for many restaurants in South and Central America. He has toured Europe teaching people the art of vegan cuisine, and is a truly incredible teacher and entrepreneur. I can promise you that every one of his dishes is unprecedented!



Where will the money go?


1.  Fly Diego to NYC and house him while he is training our organic kitchen staff and designing our new greener-than-ever menu.



2.  Redecorate the interior of GustOrganics to create the ideal romantic, Bohemian, date night, earthy atmosphere.


3.  Generate a weekly profit, and then use a percentage of that profit to help other restaurants (who are also looking to go down this path) organize their own transformation! 

And there's more....


While Diego is in NYC, he will be teaching private cooking classes valued at $150 for only $100!

Help spread the word


Word of mouth is the most powerful path to success! With every tweet, Facebook post, or yelp review, we gain a larger audience of willing participants! Please be a "big mouth" for us!!!

Thank you! 

We would not be able to make this huge change without your support. I know people say that all the time, but getting people to support you is very challenging.  The fact that you are supporting us says a lot about you as a person, and what you stand for. We all want pristine beaches to enjoy, clean water to drink, and healthy food to eat, but this change can only happen one person at a time. So THANK YOU!
