Restaurant Week at Vegetate

Summer 2007 Restaurant Week is upon us, and our very own Vegetate is taking reservations for the event (dinner Tuesday, August 7 through Saturday, August 11th). Limited space remains, so be sure to reserve ASAP. The third floor private dining room can be reserved for large parties of up to 14 people.

Vegetate's restaurant week menu is three courses for $30.07/per person (only the restaurant week menu will be offered during Restaurant Week):

First Course (choose one):
a) Spiced Mushroom Walnut Pate with braised and grilled cabbage & truffle oil;
b)Heirloom Tomato and Baby Fennel Ceviche with cumin roasted blue potatoes;
c) Trio of Grilled Summer Melon with housemade green curry, basil & pepitas

Second Course (choose one):
a) Roasted Corn, Avocado and Black Beans on a corn grit crust with herb salad & chipotle oil;
b)Saute of Summer Squashes and Asian Greens in a cashew cream sauce with edamame & sage
c) Sesame Crusted Quinoa and Wild Rice Cakes with shiitake mushroom ragout & wilted greens

Third Course (choose one)
a) Bergamot Basil Coconut Bars with sesame & gelato;
b) Dark Chocolate Torte with ancho chiles, coriander oil & gingered peach sorbet;
c) Blue Corn Biscuit and Seasonal Fruit with rosemary cardamom infused coconut milk

Vegetate will also offer a wine pairing menu (speaking of their wines... I recently tasted their Avondale Cabernet Rose and their Gramona Cava (sparkling wine), both of which are delicious summer treats currently featured on their wine menu).

Yum - sounds tasty, especially the quinoa and wild rice cakes. I can't remember if I've had that there before.

The quinoa cakes are out of this world... I can attest to that! (as well as anything with their cashew cream sauce...)

ditto on anything with Vegetate's cashew cream sauce being out of this world--I dare say it's life-changing.
