Owned and operated by Executive Chef Ron Biton, he received his formal vegan cooking training at the Natural Gourmet Institute in NYC and later honed his skills at a number of NYC restaurants, before opening Veganized Restaurant in New Brunswick.

The use of cashew and other nut-based cheeses, mushrooms, and vegetable purées results in his dishes being both tasty and colorful.
