Food Events 2013
The line-up was just announced today, Buenos Aires is the showcase city.
February 21 to March 3, 2013
I currently have a reservation at Laloux where Vedge (http://www.vedgerestaurant.com/) is the invited restaurant. My GF doesn't eat meat so it's a good fit and I've heard good things about it.
I am also looking for suggestions on vegetarian/pescatarian friendly Buenos Aires chefs. If there was no budget or food restrictions I probably would have booked either Aramburu at Chez l'Épicier or Le Mirazur at Maison Boulud (this one is already sold out).
I had a great time at Laloux for the event. I attached a pic of the menu because I don't feel like typing it all up.
The meal was pretty long at around 3h30 but with the amount of dishes (and wine) I thought it was a good pace. I could do a dish by dish breakdown if someone is interested. I know I like to read them but I'm not very good at writing them. I will say that my favorite dishes were 2nd, 3rd, and 4th service, with 2nd dessert as well. I found some picture of the meal here: http://www.katerinerollet.com/restaur... where you can see the maitake dish, the beet dish and the salad.
We went too!
here is the review posted on Trip Advisor:
we photographed the menu as well.
Best thing about this event was showing Montreal how to have a gourmet upscale experience with vegan food. A place like Laloux could be Vedge in Montreal, that would be amazing.
Argh, I wish I could see the detail on either of those menu pics!!!
Well, maybe one day someone with deep enough pockets and swagger will be able to make a go of it here like Vedge did in Philadelphia.
Even jerkface Alan Richman said it's one of the best restaurants in the US and it just happens to be vegan!
re: Peaches to Poutine
