TONIGHT: Earth Day Dinner at Vegan Commissary
Even Vegan Food Can Be Delicious
For those of you who don’t have a lot of tree-hugging friends posting about it on Instagram, today is Earth Day. Inexplicably, despite the gravitas of this enormous day, I was still expected to show up to work today. I know, it’s shocking how little people care about our planet. Nonetheless, some people know how to celebrate Earth Day correctly. Tonight, Vegan Commissary is taking a break from serving its traditional weekend brunch fare and opening up for a four-course $45 dinner.
The menu is heavy on the spring flavors, and right now is arguably the best time to eschew meat and dairy anyway because the produce is just starting to get exciting again. I mean, I’m not going to be a vegan, but I support you if you are.
The first course is a baby arugula salad with rhubarb and strawberries, followed by asparagus and artichokes served with sprouted barley and meyer lemon. The main course is risotto with spring greens, morels, and black pepper ricotta, and dessert will be a caramel coconut budino with pineapple and pistachios.
