Experience the Great Pumpkin at Vegetable

All Month Long

For a very limited time, this vegetarian bistro in Studio City is bringing back its legendary Great Pumpkin. This quintessential fall dish is comprised of a whole roasted maple-glazed sugar pie pumpkin overflowing with thyme and rosemary stuffing, layered with mushrooms and leeks, topped with crispy fried leeks, and served with a boat of luxuriously thick mushroom gravy and tart ginger cranberry chutney. Visit soon before The Great Pumpkin vanishes until next year.

Expect music, rollerblading, bounce houses, and a seemingly endless buffet of vegan fall food provided by the hundreds of guests.
