Foobooz After Dark – The Menu

Yesterday, we announced our third Foobooz After Dark dinner. We’ll be taking a steakhouse chef, Jeff Froehler, and pairing him up with a vegan chef, Vegan Commissary’s chef de cuisine, Leigh Needham. They’ll cook together in peace and harmony, and from the looks of their menu, they’re going to have some fun.

Keep in mind, when we named this dinner “Vegan Steakhouse”, it was only because of the steakhouse chef. Now that we’ve seen the menu, it looks like the two of them have wandered pretty far from the vegan-in-a-steakhouse concept. All the way to edible chopsticks, it seems…

We’ve got the menu for you after the jump. Take a look.
