Part of Overthrow Hospitality

Ladybird is the newest venture by prolific restaurateur Ravi DeRossi helmed by Chef Daphne Cheng. The intimate 40 seat restaurant will feature vegetable focused tapas.

DeRossi has created a mini-empire of world renowned cocktail lounges and bars, including Death & Company, The Bourgeois Pig, Proletariat, Cienfuegos, Mayahuel, Amor y Amargo and 124 Rabbit Club.

He then established himself as a rising star on the culinary scene with the acclaimed seafood hotspots Desnuda and Bergen Hill. Mother of Pearl brings together these two worlds and is his first hybrid restaurant and cocktail bar.

As a lifelong animal lover, his newest venture and "passion" project is Avant Garden, an upscale vegan restaurant, which opened this summer in the East Village. Avant Garden will be launched in unison with his non-profit BEAST (Benefits to End Animal Suffering Today), which will hold regular fundraisers for animal rights organizations.
