Friday Night Dinner at the Natural Gourmet Institute

My cousin Wendy is a vegan, so when we eat out together it can sometimes be a problem. For her birthday she invited some of us out to the Natural Gourmet Institute‘s Friday night dinner. For $40 the students at the Institute cook and serve a three course dinner to you. The meal was quite good, though not perfect; these are, after all students. I will say I had a good time and some of the food was excellent. Click on the link above to find out how to make reservations.
