Dennis Kucinich, U.S. Representative for Ohio’s 10th congressional district and 2004 candidiate in the Democratic presidential primary, dined in Asheville this week at Plant, the vegan restaurant in North Asheville. With him was his wife Elizabeth Kucinich, director of public affairs for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an organization that promotes a vegan diet, preventive medicine, and alternatives to animal research.
According to Wikipedia, both Kuciniches are vegans. That’s Elizabeth Kucinich on her husband’s left. Other celebs who’ve dined at the popular vegan restaurant include musician Moby, who raved about it during Moogfest 2011.
Kucinich visited Malaprop’s in 2007 when he was running for president. He met an adoring Asheville crowd.
