At The Museum This Month (February Edition)

Pilot Dish: Raw, Vegan, Gluten Free Sprouted Granola

Pilot Dish: "Eggs of the Century"
This month we are doing a lot of food labbing with our friend Vanessa so that we can generate recipes for the new restaurant she is opening with her business partner Sylvain. A few of the dishes we are trying out include gluten-free, vegan granola, tea eggs, and wild game fondue. The people we are working with are a collection of beautiful brains, who think of food differently than just a means to making profit. Sylvain is prone to expressing his anti-capitalist perspective while weighing in the necessity for money in this kind of endeavour. Meanwhile, the cocktails, dreamed up by Vanessa, are tailored not only for a booze buzz, but also for holistic health.

 We are working on having a wheat-free or something close to wheat-free kitchen and catering to alternative diets. The meat at the restaurant will be wild and so will a lot of the greens and herbs. It's exciting to be able to collect plants and watch them evolve all the way from the forest to the plates in a restaurant.


Our other project this month is "Love You Long Table"- an unconventionally romantic night at The Museum wherein we will seat all the diners at one long table to share in a meal together.  The goal is to appeal to the senses and nourish not only our bodies with wonderful food, but also our hearts and souls by the great company. We will be serving 5 courses- the first being a charcuterie board featuring lots of wild disguises and alternative diet-friendly treats. But don't worry: if you are a meat head you won't even notice.

It's happening the night after Valentine's Day. The price is $40 per person for all 5 courses, with an option to pair wine. We are only doing two seatings (6pm and 8:30), so space is very limited this time. Of course, we cater to all the queer diets, so let us know if there are any restrictions.

And stay tuned if you're interested! By the end of the week we'll have a rough menu posted and will probably be close to booked.
