Italian Feast for Vegan Meat Lovers

We're excited and honored to partner with Sgaia Vegan Meats, an outstanding UK-based food company, during their stay in LA for two very special feasts: a dinner and a brunch.

For this meal, we are taking inspiration from our and Sgaia's founders' Italian roots for a unique dinner that combines their expertly made plant-based meats and our passion for local produce and fresh bread, dairy-free cheese and pasta making.

This is a reservations only event; book your seats and view details HERE.

We look forward to cooking for you!

Menu:

ANTIPASTI: Melon wrapped with Sgaia's pastrami and topped with tarragon,
Sgaia's sliced herb roast with stone fruit mostarda,
housemade provolone, crudités and romesco dip,
blistered shishito peppers and olives, pickled radishes, grapes,
arugula salad with mint, zucchini, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and freshly baked thyme focaccia.

INVOLTINI DI MELANZANE: Eggplant stuffed with Sgaia's ground aromatico burger and our fresh almond ricotta, baked in a zesty tomato sauce and topped with pangrattato, lemon zest and basil.

FETTUCCINE ALLA CARBONARA: Fresh semolina pasta ribbons tossed in a creamy sauce flecked with black pepper and bits of Sgaia's bacon, and topped with parsley and our shaved vegan parmesan cheese.

TIRAMISU: Coffee and almond liqueur dipped ladyfingers layered with mascarpone and cocoa powder.

Optional vegan wine pairings available.

Pop up at The Double Standard, Oakland

We're back in Oakland for one pop up at our favorite bar.

While you're there grab a beer or try some of The Double Standard's delicious cocktails (they have non alcoholic drinks too).

Also, remember the desserts we used to sell at our regular Oakland pop ups (sweet potato doughnuts, double chocolate brownies, etc.)?
There will be lots of those too, and the person behind them, our friend Alicia, will be there in person to promote her exciting upcoming cafe, Bread & Butter Oakland!

Our menu:
General Tso's Brussels Sprouts
Country fried Brussels sprouts coated in a slightly tangy, slightly spicy and slightly sweet sauce and topped with sesame seeds and scallions. Winner of #BestOfVSF2017 award.

Charsiu Sandwich
Thick slices of Chinese BBQ seitan, lentil mushroom pâté, crunchy cucumber and napa cabbage slaw, scallion aioli and fresh herbs on baguette. With a side of garlic "prawn" crackers.

Chwee Kueh
Teochew and Hokkien in origin, these savory steamed rice cakes are traditionally enjoyed for breakfast but also make for the best bar food. We pan fry ours to order, and top them with ground tempeh and gailan ("Chinese broccoli") seasoned with five spice, and crispy shallots. -Gluten free.-

Menu might still vary. We accept cash and card.

We can't wait to see you there!
