If you're a PDX animal rights activist, Adam Berger thinks you're an idiot.

Owner of the vegan restaurant Nutshell, Adam stated on video that he would stop serving foie grois at Ten-01, his upscale Pearl district establishment.

Adam made this promise after a group of activists had gathered outside of Ten-01 on a Friday afternoon to express their disappointment that the owner of a vegan establishment was also making money from the sale of foie gras, one of the cruelest of factory farming techniques.

The activists thanked Adam and dispersed. PDX ADL, a local grassroots animal rights organization, went as far as to publicly thank Ten-01 on their website for making this compassionate choice.

That's how the situation has remained. Vegans felt more at ease supporting Nutshell, knowing that the owners did not profit from this horrific practice.

Thanks to an investigation, it has been discovered that Adam has lied. In an attempt to trick local animal rights activists into sparing his business from their attention, Adam has secretly placed the diseased liver back on the menu.

We trusted Adam, as the owner of Nutshell, and now our trust has been broken and our patience has been spent.

Let this hypocrite know what you think of his deceit!

Longtime vegan

While I have a problem with single issued campaigns focused on one dish at a restaurant serving many animals this pisses me off. in the future get signed statement.

Thank You, Alert Investigators 19.Jun.2008 13:00

I've been helping sporadically with the Blue Hour demos. At the time of the 10-01 demos, I thought it was pretty generous of folks not to demonstrate at the Nutshell. Unfortunately, I can't attend this Friday. The location is good because it's so close to Blue Hour, but I have to wonder if demonstrating outside the Nutshell would have more impact. Fliering is great, too, but I thought I'd put this idea out there. The vegetarians are much more likely to be disturbed, make their opinions known, and exercise educated choice in the future.

I went to Nutshell once and thought it was a ripoff for pretentious trendoids.
