I was really fortunate to be able to get a reservation for the final weekend of 4 Course Vegan before they packed up and moved to California. It was my first time at an "underground" supper club and I really enjoyed it. The event was held at Chef Matteo's beautiful Williamsburg apartment and he had all sorts of tables and chairs set up throughout the living room and dining room. The lights were dim and there were candles everywhere so the ambiance was very calm and romantic.

The food was absolutely delicious, and not a bad deal at $40 (not including tip), considering how fancy and involved the dishes were. However, as is normally the case with gourmet food, the portions were very small so I was nowhere near full when I left (although that may just be my greedy nature!). :)

4 course vegan is the best hidden jewel in New York City. Every Saturday, Chef Matteo cooks a 4 course vegan meal that makes you say WOW after every bite and leaves everyone, vegans and non-vegans alike with the same thought: if I could only eat like that every day!

My wife and I discovered this place through a coworker of mine about a year and a half ago and have been hooked ever since, trying to be there every Saturday night we can.

The menu changes every week and is based on local, seasonal ingredients.
The web site is http://www.4coursevegan.com and is updated weekly with the menu.
Last night’s menu included:

Jicma and Cashew ‘cheeze’ ravioli with cilantro pesto sauce
Herbed ‘cheeze’ and flax seed cracker
*****
Thai lentil soup with lemon grass and avocado relish
*****
Salad of Frisee and Sorrel with
Sour Rye Croutons and Horseradish Dressing
*****
Rosemary Mushroom Pave with
Buttercup 'Mash' and Adzuki Miso Gravy
*****
Cinnamon Apple Torte with
Maple Caramel, Lemon Sour Cream, and Spiced Walnuts

The Ravioli resembles its Italian cousin just in concept. The cashew cheese was sandwiched between 2 thin slices of Jicama. It was light and crunchy with amazing creamy texture inside.

The Soup was very unique. Now we want to try and add lemon grass to our lentil soups. The avocado relish was a perfect companion.

We did differ in our love of the next 2 courses. The horseradish dressing was to strong for my taste but my wife, the wasabi lover, enjoyed every bite

The Mushroom Pave was a bit salty but to my taste it complemented the lightly sweet buttercup mash perfectly.

Everyone agreed on the desert. It was a perfect torte. Smelling of cinnamon and every bite is a mouthful of sweet and sour. Beautifully presented, we all wished there could be seconds.

Beyond the extraordinary food, the dinner is a great way to meet like-minded people. Served by Matteo himself to a communal table, the conversation and company is always great.
