Current number one men’s singles tennis champion Novak Djokovic and his wife Jelena Djokovic opened vegan restaurant Eqvita in Monte Carlo on Sunday night. His tennis pals, Andy Murray, Tomas Berdych, Fabio Fognini and Grigor Dimitrov, came to support Serbian tennis player. The grand opening featured champagne and vegan appetizers, while menu items include salads, wraps, lasagna, and a variety of desserts such as Mango Cheesecake, Tapioca Brulée, and Double Chocolate Cake.
Novak and Jelena posed for a series of social-media photo-album shots promoting their new spot.
“Yeyyyy!!!! We made it! We have the most amazing team of people who helped us make this night happen. My wife and I transferred our passion for healthy food into a restaurant concept called Eqvita Restaurant that is supposed to open in a few weeks. Tonight we are sharing our excitement with our family, friends and colleagues and in a few weeks time we will invite you all to join us here in Monaco.”
The famously gluten-free Djokovic has stated that Eqvita is more than a restaurant to him, since: “It’s a concept. A story. A love story to be precise. Pretty much a personal once, since I shared it with my Jelena.”
