Conspire Set to Relaunch as a Vegan Restaurant

hen Conspire's coffee operations moved down the street to become Jobot Coffee, the Downtown hangout/gallery switched gears and started serving smoothies and vegan baked goods and desserts.

Now, Conspire is undergoing yet another makeover, and this time it includes a relaunch with a full in-house vegan eatery.

At this point, chef Andres Yuhnke says the restaurant won't have a separate moniker from Conspire, although that may change as the details get hashed out.

Over the next few months, Yuhnke and his business partner, Yin Macatabas, plan to expand the menu to include more "hearty comfort foods," and the focus will be healthful fusion cuisine that uses as many local, organic ingredients as possible.

In addition, Yuhnke says his friend and former boss, Rick "Koji" Hashimoto of Hana, will be helping him develop some signature vegan sushi rolls.
