Los Angelenos! The new year is almost here, and as we get through the anything-goes eating of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it’s time to get back to eating clean. But why wait until January 1? Get a jump start on your resolution to embrace a plant-based, sustainable diet on New Year’s Eve at Matthew Kenney’s Plant Food + Wine.
The elegant Los Angeles hot spot that pleases omnivores and vegans alike, Plant Food + Wine has a sublime and satisfyingly delicious evening planned. A decadent, refreshing tasting menu highlights fresh, seasonal vegetables alongside soulful ingredients such as kabocha squash and wild mushrooms and features six courses and, of course, bubbles for just $55 per person.
Dishes include Buckwheat Blini with Almond Cream and Hijiki “Caviar”; Spaghetti Squash with Beech Mushroom and Apple-Black Pepper Brodo; Winter Citrus with Baby Beets, Herb Stems, and Santa Barbara Pistachio Butter; Kabocha Squash; Pear; Candied Pumpkin + Mustard Seed; Wild Mushroom “Lasagna” with Smoked Almond Ricotta, and Sunchoke Puree; Cava-Poached Asian Pear, with Wheatgrass Granita and Sorrel Gelato, and Chocolate Bon Bons + Truffles. There is an optional Braised Celery Root with Black Truffle and Pumpernickel for $35 to raise the luxe-meter, and a $20 cheese plate (and, cheese lovers, if you’ve not had their housemade nut cheese, you are missing out — yes, even you dairy eaters). Accompany it all with modestly priced organic and biodynamic wine pairings for just $24.
