Matthew Kenney Cuisine is pleased to announce the launch of its first ever summer pop-up series: Arata at Plant Food + Wine Venice, taking place from July 28 to August 7. Arata, Japanese for “fresh and new,” has been serving buns, noodles and “Far East” inspired plant-based fare from the company’s culinary incubator in Belfast Maine, where the brand experiments with new innovative concepts. This July, Arata will travel to Los Angeles for a limited 11-day run at Matthew Kenney’s flagship restaurant and culinary academy space, Plant Food + Wine Venice.
