Menu detail

Warm Cashew Burrata served in Endive with Radish and Saffron
We'll serve our cashew burrata in Belgian endive, topped with finely diced radishes, sea salt, saffron oil, and herbs.
French Onion Soup
Small Plate
Onions slowly caramelized for 5 hours, deglazed with Champagne, and then cooked with an umami rich broth made from kombu and shiitakes. Topped with a crust of bread and melted cashew cheese. We've fed this to omnivores, who swore up and down, it tastes just the same as a French onion soup you'd find in a French brasserie.
Warm Pear Salad: Charred Citrus, Cultured Cashew Blue Cheese, Lettuces, Walnuts
Small Plate
We'll make sous vide warm pears, toasted walnuts, zesty cashew blue cheese with lettuces and a tarragon vinaigrette.
Trumpet Mushroom Sausage Bourguignon
This is a classic French dish we're going to veganize just for you. We'll use a red wine reduction sauce with mirepoix and garlic to braise Lions Mane and Oysters grown for us by Chicagos very own Four Star Mushrooms, and serve it with herb braised potatoes, carrots, button mushrooms, and pearl onions to make a very refined, veganized, classic French dish dotted with smoky eggplant bacon and fresh herbs.
Chocolate Raspberry Tart with Coffee Meringue and Pomegranate
Our friends at Mindful Baking make and amazing Chocolate Raspberry Tart, to which we'll be adding pomegranate sauce and Dark Matter espresso meringue!
You'll get to take home one of our freshly made croissants!
