Udi's Supper Club serves up (vegan) manna from heaven

Udi's Pizza Cafe Bar has created something amazing with its monthly Udi's Supper Club -- a multi-course, family-style vegan feast of absurd proportions held on the last Monday of every month, with 10 percent of the proceeds benefitting a different charity each time.

Udi's Supper Club works like this: You make a reservation in advance, show up at your allotted time, and get your own table (this isn't like many other family-style dinners in the area, where you're forced to make small talk with strangers at one big table). Then a server brings out the courses one by one -- and you can always order more of any item you like. But be careful: There are usually four to five dishes per course, and it's easy to fill up far too early.

If you have friends and family who doubt that eating vegan can be delicious, this is just the place to prove them wrong. Chef Robin Bar-on's food is superb -- and a total steal at just $18 per person for an all-you-can-eat meal!

We left the first installment of Udi's Supper Club Monday night incredibly satisfied, and loaded with food porn:

First course, pictured above, clockwise from top: assorted artisan breads with Lebanese-style garlic sauce and Yemenite-style cilantro hot sauce, taboule salad, smoked eggplant with Italian olive oil, white-bean hummus, falafel.

I am carnivorous but this meal was fantastic! I absolutely loved the charred kale, I'm yearning for some more. I had the pleasure of popping in the kitchen to thank Robin personally and she was super busy but took a second to say hi.

Look, eat a cheeseburger when you desire but you all need to eat more veggies!

Lisaalexshapiro. Society is looking for meat. This looks like someone tossed their garden in a blender and served it up on bread. Barf.

Agreed, Udi's has really tapped into something that society is yearning for; absolutely delicious plant powered food that is good for us and the planet. I brought friends that never thought they could be satisfied without their meat and dairy products and every one of them left feeling like they could eat like that forever. If only we all had our own Robin Bar- on has our personal cook. Until then, I will surely be there every Monday they host this incredible feast -and bring my friends to experience this Vegan mana(;

Hmmm... and why exactly are you reading a column called "Veggie Girl"?

Sheila: stop being annoying for no reason. The picture was taken in poor lighting. Hummus is delicious, and fruits, veggies, grains, and beans are the vital components of a healthy lifestyle. I guarantee rotting animal flesh looks way more gross. Also, way to stereotype society as "looking for meat." I don't want to be in your barbarian society if so. I'll gladly stick to the kind gardening life-affirming animal-loving vegan crowd.

Sorry about the poor quality of the photos, all -- I clearly need a new camera.

To Ms. Mancini: I was a meat-eater for most of my years on this planet, and I can unequivocally say that this was arguably the best meal I've ever eaten in my entire life. Don't knock it till you've tried it!
