Hanami Cherry Blossom Festival: Vegan Japanese Cuisine
Our Cherry Blossom Festival dinner features futomaki sushi rolls filled with fresh, seasonal ingredients, a classic sukiyaki Japanese hotpot, and tricolor ice cream as pretty as petals on a wet, black bough. Join the Urban Dinner Socials for four courses of vegan Japanese cuisine, cooked by the farmers who grew it.

Paper Crane Craft Activity: We're making cranes for peace! Your crane could wind up at Austin Fashion Week, too:

Traditions of hanami: Delicate cherry flowers are contemplated as a metaphor for life itself -- luminous and beautiful yet fleeting and ephemeral. Of course, some people are more interested in food than flowers at a hanami party! We offer our guests a meditative activity (origami) and tasty food at a friendly community table.

Sponsored by Whittier Backyard Farms, our Cherry Blossom Festival dinner is dedicated to health, peace, and community.

All-Vegan Menu:

- Futomaki Sushi Rolls
Rice delicately seasoned with sweet vinegar, rolled in nori with avocado, daikon pickle, marinated mushroom, and other local seasonal specialties, with wasabi and tamari for dipping.

- Farm Fresh Miso Salad
Whittier Backyard Farms lettuce tossed with our house miso dressing and topped with sesame seeds, seaweed, and wild mustard flowers.

- Sukiyaki Hotpot
We make this hearty, home style Japanese dish with glass noodles, enoki, seasoned daikon, carrots, bok choy, tamari, and mirin.

- Three Ice Cream Flavors: Black Sesame, Raspberry, and Green Tea
House-made with a cashew ice cream base.

Urban Dinner Socials: We are a traveling vegan gastropub that reinvents world cuisine and comfort food using local, organic produce. For recipes, stories, and dinner dates, subscribe to our newsletter:

Why dinner? You'll sit down with a stranger and get up with a friend at our community table. Come dine with some of the nicest people in L.A.!

Why vegan? Our inclusive cuisine welcomes everyone. Not only is it vegan, we can make it gluten-free/soy-free/corn-free, you name it.

Why local? Supporting a neighborhood farm* means eating healthy, pure, sustainably grown food. It also means a reduced carbon footprint, increased independence for our local economy, and reduced reliance on non-local resources.

Why experimental? Vegan and raw vegan cuisine is the new Wild West for food lovers. We have the most fun pioneering and helping invent this cuisine!

*The primary produce supplier for the Urban Dinner Socials is Whittier Backyard Farms, a small start-up farm group in Whittier, CA.
