Part of Overthrow Hospitality

Overthrow Hospitality is a mission-driven vegan restaurant and bar company from proprietor Ravi DeRossi, whose legacy in New York City’s East Village spans twenty years and dozens of venues. As a hospitality group, our mission is to build a place of purpose, a place where we don’t have to seek things on the outside to feel appreciated. A place where hard work and discipline creates unbreakable bonds. A place that's not just a job but a community. A world where you are celebrated for who we are intentionally, instead of accidentally, where being human is expected but acting out of love is required. A place that replaces the home many of us have lost.

For some, working in a bar or restaurant marks a period of transition. For others, it’s a lifelong pursuit packed with its own peaks and valleys. Our work is done on the inside, it's a reflection of who we are and we are guided wholly by the tenets that keep us motivated.
