We're very excited to have our annual Vegan NYE experience hosted at the Longacre Dining Room this year! We've designed a wonderfully extravagant meal just for you, and this year we'll also have a nice kitchen, warm inviting dining room, beautiful plateware, and a full bar with specialty drinks as well. There will be tasty appetizers, a velvety soup with our housemade bread, a fresh flavorful salad, an earthy and fragrant entree of your choosing, and our house-made Dark Matter Coffee tiramisu for dessert! A gluten-free option is available, (as well as booze free for the tiramisu), it will be an honor to cook for you, and we're looking forward to it. Let's send off 2019 in style!
