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
  • Garlic-hardwood-roasted pork from Jimenez Farms, white beans in cumin-mint-cilantro chutney, grilled peaches and zucchini on house baked corn tortilla
  • Vegetarian/Vegan option: Marinated-grilled portobellos, white beans in cumin-mint-cilantro chutney, grilled peaches and zucchini on house baked corn tortilla
  • Coconut rice pudding with grilled caramelized mango, pistachios and citronge

The cost is $65 per person. Click here for directions on how to purchase tickets (if it’s not too late…!) and for where to go and when.

Chicks with Knives, which holds supper club events across Southern California, will be hosting its next supper club in Echo Park on Sunday, April 11. We’re new to Chicks with Knives and the supper club phenomenon, but it sounds incredibly delicious! The company hosts private dinner parties and other food events for what is sort of a social organization that includes dinner (so it’s like an underground restaurant at a private residence, for members only). Every event features food made from “sustainable, organic, local and ethical ingredients.”

A total of 16 spots are available for members. For membership consideration, you can check out their website here.

Price is $64 per person

If you want to bring Chicks with Knives back to Echo Park this year, they are also looking for homes in July and August for upcoming events.
