‘I turned around and bumped into this tiny guy and was thinking “oh my god… that’s Mick Jagger,”‘ the consummate host explained.

While making sure the cavalcade of today’s biggest and brightest who patronize the restaurant are well taken care of, Susser has also been focused on his line of dairy-free desserts. 

With flavors like Killa Vanilla, Sunset & Strawberry, Melrose Mint Chip and Kursten’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, the decadent treat will be flying off the shelves soon.

They are currently available at Bristol Farms, Erewhon, The Greek Theatre, Soho House Malibu, and Tocaya Organica. With plans to expand soon.

Susser said the idea for the vegan ice cream came from his desire to keep his guests happy and healthy.

‘The inspiration came from the desire of our customers. There was nothing on the market we were excited about, so we decided to make something exciting ourselves,’ he told West Hollywood Design District.

‘It’s a collaborative creation from myself and Chef Kizer,’ Susser added. 

Meanwhile, the fabulous launch party included the likes of Showman Jeff Beacher – who was once dubbed ‘The Greatest Showman on the Strip’ in Las Vegas by Rolling Stone magazine.
