On Friday night, we set the tables, light the candles and put our chefs to work creating a family dinner like no other in New York City. Each week features a unique 3-course vegetarian meal prepared by Chef’s Training Program students and instructors. We use seasonal, local, fresh, traditional and whole ingredients, often vegan and/or gluten-free. BYOB and only $45, Friday Night Dinner is one of the best values for a night out on the town to be had in this city.
