Vegetarian Buffet in Clay Pit's Wine Room

We've reserved the Wine Room at Clay Pit (Contemporary Indian) for a three-course vegetarian (mostly vegan and completely gluten-free) family-style dinner service for $17 per person (they say that cash will make checking-out quicker). The menu will be:

APPETIZER
Batata Cham
Delicately spiced potato patty, pan-seared until crisp on the outside
(vegan, gluten-free)

ENTREES
Aloo Ghobi
Braised cauliflower and potato curry
(vegan, gluten-free)

Vegetable Jalfrezie
Fresh garden vegetables stir-fried in a tangy masala gravy
(vegan, gluten-free)

Paneer Bahuna
Cubes of homemade cheese, stir-fried with bell peppers and red onions, braised in a tomato onion sauce
(vegetarian, gluten-free)

DESSERT
Mango-Ginger and Guava sorbet
(vegan, gluten-free)

WAITING LIST
The Waiting List for this event is set for Automatic, so please update your RSVP if you can't make it.

From Clay Pit's website:

"Since 1998, we at the Clay Pit have been passionately committed to a singular goal: bringing the intriguing aromas and exotic flavours of India to our fellow Austinites.

By combining centuries-old recipes and a traditional clay tandoor oven, with the freshest ingredients and an innovative vision we offer, what we call, Contemporary Indian cuisine.

However, we do understand that many of our guests may be unfamiliar with Indian food. Rest assured that our friendly and knowledgeable staff looks forward to helping guide you through the extensive menu. For the Clay Pit family, great food isn't a job, it's a passion.

Our promise to you: A dining experience you won't soon forget! No passport required, just love of good food, an adventurous palate and a hearty appetite.

So sit back, RELAX, and enjoy our hospitality as you embark on the culinary adventure we call Contemporary INDIA. Shukria, Clay Pit Family"

    Just saw that I went from the waiting list to actually attending... I'm way north and would be more than fashionably late... Is someone who is closer to the venue wanting to go... Please use my place.

    Considering that it is no longer a buffet, what is the expected cost per head?

    July 22, 2013

    • Austin Vegetarian L.

      The price and everything else, we got right...just got the service style wrong. Hope that still works for you, Sushrutha!

    Gonna have to bail unfortunately. Dealing with a stomach virus today.

  • Austin Vegetarian L.

    We goofed and just found out that tonight's dinner will be a family-style dinner service instead of a buffet, so don't be late! And since we've only getting a certain amount of food, we should be careful to make sure that everyone gets enough dinner before we attempt getting large helpings and seconds.

    How am I doing on the WaitList?

    July 21, 2013

    • Austin Vegetarian L.

      Joan, you're #5, so we're optimistic!

      July 21, 2013

    • Austin Vegetarian L.

      Joan, we're so optimistic that we moved you through to yes (thanks again for the nudge to email everyone!) because that's the only way to move you to the top of the Waiting List. So technically, you're not quite there yet, but if we get another cancellation, you will be. Lisa and Preetesh, please stand by, and thanks in advance for understanding. We think there's a good chance we'll get more cancellations.

    The restaurant said they could squeeze two more people in, so we gave those seats to the two APV event hosts that were on the waiting list. The rest of you on the waiting list, hold tight. We'll send a reminder for people to confirm or update their RSVPs on Saturday, so there's a chance seats will become available.

      Thanks for being RSVP-conscious. This one will probably have a Waiting List, so we'll send a reminder to update RSVPs that week. Hoping you don't have to work!

      Absolutely, sounds good!
