Friday after Thanksgiving, my family and I attended a beautiful dinner at Suite ThreeOhSix in Tribeca. It's a vegan supper club that hosts gorgeous multiple course dinners in a community style setting.
This particular dinner was family style and had a Thanksgiving theme. Each dinner is different, and they often have guest hosts/chefs/collaborators and cooking classes.
We started with homemade Turkish pide, a focaccia like bread. And from there, we had seven additional courses.
Red Lentil Bisque with arancini, coconut aioli and cubanelle pepper. I must say, I think this was my favorite dish of the night. It was so complex and so lovely. The arancini was such a nice texture in the soup, along with the coconut and micro greens.
Baby Red Oak with hannah white sweet potato, rainbow beets and cilantro vinaigrette. A really nice salad after the depth of the soup.
Mushroom Melange with wild rice pilaf, bordelaise sauce and fresh thyme. I'm not the biggest mushroom fan, the textures freak me out a bit, but it had a really nice flavor.
Haricots Verts with pickled onion, walnut cream and toasted chia. The sauce was so tasty and the green beans extremely crisp.
Corn Pudding with smoked tea, leeks and cranberry chutney. I loved the presentation in this sweet little dish, and the cranberries were an awesome condiment.
Passionfruit Pumpkin Sorbet. As delicious as it looks.
Chef Daphne at work.
Kabocha Squash and Pear Galette with cardamom ricotta and pecans. I had never had kabocha squash as dessert, and now I'm not sure why. It was amazing.
And to finish, these adorable meringues.
It was such a great experience and I highly recommend it.
And one final Thanksgiving treat...Vegan Salted Caramel Pecan ice cream from Mitchell's in Cleveland. My parents brought some with them from Ohio.
This ice cream is so good. It tastes just like Bit O Honey, which I used to love before going vegan. It sounds strange, but that's exactly the flavor.
For Thanksgiving, I also ordered cannoli from Vegan Treats. (When my parents come to town, we get a little crazy with vegan sweets, we just have to try a little of everything).
These were beyond delightful. I actually preferred the original, but my dad went crazy over the chocolate dipped variety :)
For Thanksgiving, I picked up some new to me vegan cheeses to try with a crusty baguette.
Kite Hill's White Alder was the first. It had the most amazing texture and I loved how very brie-like it was.
Treeline's Scallion Soft Cheese was also a great texture. It was a bit strong for me, but the scallion addition was really nice. It has a fermented taste that does come on quite strong, but a sprinkle of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper really helps even things out.
One night for dinner, Heath and I were craving sushi. I found a spot nearby called Roka. It's on a super cute street and has outdoor seating, if the weather cooperates.
The Avocado and Cucumber Roll was really nice - I loved the thinly sliced avocado on the top, sprinkled with bits of crispy onion. I always run into a few little pieces of roe that I meticulously pick off because I can't stand the thought of accidentally (or purposefully) eating fish eggs.
And I love Robata! I opted for the Tofu in a sweet soy sauce with micro greens and green onions. (They also have asparagus and eggplant).
If you ever visit, explore the neighborhood. So many gems.
I have a deep love for french fries. The potato will always be my favorite vegetable, and frying itobviously just makes it that much better.
A few years ago, Heath and I walked by a little french fry shop on 2nd Avenue with a line out the door. It was bad timing since we had just eaten, but I always remembered it, hoping to return hungry.
And a few weeks ago, we just happened to walk by when I was in desperate need of a snack. (It took several years to return because we moved away for about four years - 2 years in Omaha and 2 in Chicago).
eat pure is a blog about two things - vegetarian food + travel - my two loves. I love the challenge of finding cruelty-free eats everywhere I go, and even better I love to share all of the amazing sights and tastes I experience. Great veggie food is available in every part of the world, and I intend to prove it.
