In the midst of the dark post-holiday nights of winter, there are few things as nourishing and soul-warming as a community dinner cooked by a professional chef. At Archestratus in Greenpoint, grab a ticket for Our Vegan Dinner with the freelancing chef Ken Wiss (prior work at Marlow & Sons and Diner). For a $40 ticket, you’ll get three vegan courses. Maybe your palate of vegan taste will be expanded, or perhaps you’ll make a new friend who geeks out over cookbooks as much as you do. There’s only one way to find out. Get tickets in advance, slots for the 7pm and 8pm dinner are still available. Drinks will also be for sale.
