Social impact entrepreneur Andrea Kerzner and award-winning chef Amanda Cohen have teamed up to introduce Lekka Burger, a plant-powered burger and shake concept based in Lower Manhattan.
Andrea, born in South Africa and raised amongst some of the world’s leading hospitality brands, founded the vegan restaurant Lekka Burger in 2019 in order to provide delicious plant-powered food to improve the health of people and planet. After being diagnosed with MS, Andrea decided to adopt a vegan diet. 8 years later, with her MS in remission, Andrea has been able to be taken off all medication – a feat that she attributes to her diet.
Amanda, a chef with over 25 years of experience cooking vegetable-forward food for New York City diners at her celebrated restaurant Dirt Candy, set her sights on creating the highest quality burger made from only whole, real ingredients – and the highly-praised results speak for themselves.
