For the first time since November we are hosting one of our renowned dinners.  20 seats available for this fixed price menu, held in a loft in Oakland. Please join us, Chef Philip Gelb and sous Chef, Cori Spence as we share some of our fascination and explorations with the vegetarian culinary worlds of Thailand, Japan and China. Fresh local produce, even in the heart of winter is ripe for the kitchen here in Northern California as we begin the 8th year of these underground dining experiences.
