New Year, New Movie, New Restaurant -- Dine Out at the GREEN LADY CAFE

Wanda Abioto, the chef owner of Portland's newest raw/vegan restaurant is opening her new Green Lady Cafe this evening for a special dinner between showings of Forks Over Knives premiering at the Fox Tower.

Shows at 5:00 pm and 7:20, dinner served between 6:30 and 8:30. It's a short hike from Fox tower to the Green Lady Cafe, where Wanda and her talented daughters are creating this generous dinner just for us for only $15, featuring dishes not normally on her cafe menu.

  • pear-infused rejuvalac (both wheatberry & gluten-free quinoa)
  • red curry soup
  • mixed greens
  • tomato with cashew cheese
  • sprouted quinoa
  • southern un'cookin pie 'n ice cream

Not positive yet on the gluten-free status of this meal but will update when it's clearer. Wanda is originally from Mississippi and more recently from Tennessee so has a new take on raw food that is different from the Portland flavor (and we do have one).

UPDATE: The official word is that other than the rejuvelac (which there will be both wheatberry and gluten-free quinoa versions available) the menu is gluten-free.

This meetup is only official for the meal. People are free to go before or after dinner to the movie (or not at all but it's a great show so do go). If you are going to the movie please specify in the RSVP which showing so others might join you (if you wish). This meetup is also in conjunction with an event on Living Raw in Portland.

The Green Lady Cafe is on Washington Street at 10th Avenue two blocks south of Powell's Bookstore on Burnside and two blocks north of the main library.

    I enjoyed the food and the staff was really nice. Those mushrooms and the desert were my fave! It was good to meet up with friends and meet new people.

    The people were great and the food was wonderful - but it was REALLY SLOW. We got an email saying that there were at least 40+ people expected - seemed like the Cafe didn't know this...

    Hi Kelsey & Rachel! Would you mind if my husband & I met you at 6:30 for dinner? We're new to this meet up (& Portland!) and this seems like a great kickoff.

    I do Rachel. I will get there at 6:30 and then see the 7:20 showing.

    Does anyone want to plan to meet at the diner right at 6:30 and eat with me then head to the 7:20 showing?
