We've arranged with the Curry Club to have a fixed-price vegan dinner the first Sunday of each month. Dinner includes appetizer, several entrees, rice, bread, and dessert.
The price is $20 for all you care to eat, which you pay at the restaurant. This includes tax and tip, and if you can afford to leave more for the tip, the restaurant workers appreciate it very much.
Menu (subject to change, but this is the plan...)
- appetizers: aloo tikki chat & dosas
- main dishes: saag, yellow dal, mushroom masala, tofu tikka masala
- plain rice, coconut rice, whole wheat roti
- dessert: kheer* (rice pudding)
*soy-free; made with almond milk
Beverages (wine, beer, juice, tea) will add to your cost. The restaurant normally charges $8 per glass of wine, but for us the cost is $5.
Will it be family style or buffet? Depends on how many RSVP. More than 40, and it may be buffet.
Also: if the table configuration is conducive, we'll do a "seat-swapping" partway through the evening. This is to shuffle the conversation groups, and allow you to visit with more people. Only half of us actually change places. If you'd prefer to stay put, just notify me beforehand (in your RSVP or by email) and I'll save you one of those seats.
As with all VLI meetups, please follow VLI's policy that "the food is always vegan, and everyone is treated with kindness." (In other words, we expect everyone to order only vegan fare. Even if you or your guests don't think of yourselves as "vegan.")
And finally, be mindful of VLI's RSVP/no show policy (here: www.meetup.com/Vegan-Long-Island/about/).
RSVP deadline: 6 PM the day before (Saturday). We need an accurate headcount. Thanks!
