Special Occasion, Special Menu

Divamac Mar 18, 2013 08:45 PM

I'm looking for a restaurant that would be open to prepare a special menu (vegan) for a special occasion for a party of 2. I've managed to have some very good food around SD since taking the vegan plunge, but none of it's been fine dining (A lovely lunch at Kitchen 1540 being the exception)

Any suggestions for a chef/restaurant that would be willing to accommodate?

        I agree with the masses, pick your place and call to discuss your request.

          Thanks, everyone. I'll let you know if I find any if these places to be adventurous enough to take us on!

            Thanks for your suggestions, everyone. After a series of frustrating conversations with various restaurants who offered nothing more creative than roasted vegetables, we've decided to go for Ethiopian at Muzita Abyssinian Bistro.

            It's disappointing that we couldn't find something extra special, but we will enjoy ourselves an a delicious meal just the same.
