Candle Cafe's Co-Founder Bart Potenza Talks Health, Veganism And Saying Yes
Huffington Post - 4 months
I met up with Bart Potenza, the founder of the vegan restaurant Candle Cafe, at his Upper East Side locale. Bart has a warm, jovial and energetic presence despite being almost 80 years old ("80 going on 60" he tells me). Along with his wife Joy Pierson, who co-founded the restaurant with him back in 1993, they are frequent fixtures at their upper east side cafe (they also own the sister restaurant on the upper west side and the upscale Candle 79). As we sit down at a high-top table in the front of the restaurant, Bart mentions that he recently had a hairline wrist fracture, and surprised the doctors by being mostly healed after four weeks, one of the many health benefits he credits to his vegan lifestyle ("In 30 years, I've had the flu only twice" he states proudly). The place is bustling with the dinner crowd, and Bart leans over and points out some of his long-standing customers to me, who often sit alongside famous faces like Gloria Steinem, David Duchovny, and Alicia Silvers ...
