This Thursday: Six Course Vegan Tapas Wine Pairing!

Hello New Orleans Vegans! I am excited to tell you about this event at Santa Fe Tapas, located at 1327 St. Charles Avenue (between Thalia and Erato). Beginning at 6:30 tomorrow evening, Santa Fe will host a six course all-vegan tapas and wine pairing. For reservations, call (504) 304-9915. The menu is set to include:
*Introduction- Sparkling Wine

*1st Course - Joel Gott, Un-Oaked Chardonnay
Artichokes Ottoman, Organic Baby Carrots, Petit Pois, Pea Tendrils, Dill Lemon Emulsion

*2nd Course - Joel Gott, Pinot Gris
Spiced Punmpkin Agnolotti, Herb Foam, Hazelnuts

*3rd Course - Lange Twins, Viognier
Orange Fennel Heirloom Radish Salad, Petit Potato Croquette

*4th Course - Lange Twins, Cabernet
Charred Corn Edamame Succotash, Duo of Purees (Parsnip, Edamame), Crisp Parsnips

*5th Course - Senario de Alange, Tempranillo
Roasted Tomato, Egg-Plant Bolognese, Whole Wheat Penne

*6th Course - Chemin De Terre
Asparagus Tempura, Crisp Oyster Mushrooms, Arugula Risotto, Truffle Oil
I hope that this will be the first of many vegan events at this location, and the beginning of a shift to more veg options on their menu. See you there!

Of note: before I put my support behind any restaurant that primarily serves animal products, I check the menu for any particularly egregious items. Upon scanning Santa Fe's online menu, the one listing that caught my eye was the Chilean Sea Bass. I inquired about this item and was told, to my relief, that it had been removed from the service menu three months ago.
