Gyan Riley dinner/concert this Friday!

We added a second night! January 23 sold out (We are taking a waiting list in case of cancellations for that evening) so we are now taking reservations for Friday January 22. Same amazing guitarist and composer, Gyan Riley and same chef, sous chef and server but totally different menu. Still working out the details of the menu but below gives you a pretty good idea what to expect. As always, local, seasonal cuisine, all vegan, and sourced as directly as possible from the most sustainable food producers.
For these events, everything is homemade including the tempeh, tofu, seitan, breads, noodles, etc.
seats are filling fast for this second evening
