  • wow! that looks awesome and is a pretty good deal too! maybe I should get a dog sitter and take a roadtrip to LA!

  • I would do it if I had the money. 🙁

  • It’s funny… I moved here for awesome stuff like this (food, movie events, concerts, etc.), but now that I live here, I can’t afford that stuff. Because I live here.

  • I’m too broke for this as well at the moment. It sounds very cool though, have fun!!

  • Sounds interesting….but the wife and I will be at an art opening….

    BTW….chefs…..please for the love of all things shiny. Stop with the “foam”.

  • @Gregalor: I didn’t move here, but I totally feel ya. It would be nice to have $75 to spend on food tasting. **sigh**

  • Seriously guys! I am with you on this. I don’t know if it’s funny or just plain pathetic that I’d consider moonlighting only to have a bit more pocket money for upscale vegan restaurants around Los Angeles that I totally can’t afford right now. Hehe.

  • I’ll be going. $75 is a small price to pay (and I’m shit broke) to taste this stuff. With everything organic and days of design and preparation I think this is a steal.

  • I’m going! I can’t find any vegan friends to come with me, so I’ll be at a table for 1…hope to see some of you there!

  • I was BLOWN AWAY by this meal. I posted my own review in the QG forums for those of you who weren’t able to attend:
