Tonight, Echo Park’s Green Beacon Foundation in Elysian Heights is hosting the first of many sustainable supper club events called “Food For Thought.” The Foundation is teaming up with Large Marge Sustainables Catering and City Sip LA for the exclusive event (only 16 seats!) where 100% of the proceeds are donated to food related charities. Tonight’s proceeds go to Medicines Global.
Of course, both the food and the drink will be all organic, farm-fresh and sustainable (the wine, they describe, is “viticultural-conscious”). You’ll get a tour of the Green Beacon space prior to the multi-course meal and wine pairings served by City Sip owner Nicole Daddio.The menu for tonight is as follows (h/t LAist):
- Chilled Straus yogurt Persian cucumber soup with Kanon Organic Vodka served in martini glasses
Sweet melon carpaccio with mint, jalapeño, lime juice, sea salt and Verni’s California extra virgin olive oil
