This all-vegan cafe is known for serving casual daytime comfort food like Reuben Sandwiches, Jackfruit “Chicken” Salad, Cauliflower Mac and Cheese, and Street Tacos. Executive chef, Mimi Williams, decided to stray from Counterpart’s traditional menu items this October with the launch of a weekend-only dinner tasting menu, featuring handmade pastas, freshly-prepared cheeses, and vegetable-based renditions of classic Italian dishes.
“The tasting menu reveals how ingredients from the ground can both stand alone as a fully composed plate and can also be manipulated to mimic the taste and texture of meat-based dishes, while underscoring the inherent quality and flavor of produce. There’s still a level of artistry involved; many of the plates are prepared through a multi-day process and employ sous vide, braising, fermentation, and dehydration methods,” shared Williams.
In response to the mandatory shutdown of outdoor dining, Williams and the Counterpart team made the decision to offer a condensed version of the menu for takeout on Friday and Saturday evenings. The dinner package for two includes an Heirloom Tomato Carpaccio, Spicy Caesar Salad, Lasagna Bolognese, and Tiramisu.
Guests can pre-book via Tock starting Thursday, December 3 for pickup between 6-8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. More information can be found at counterpartvegan.com.
