The foodie weekend starts off at the private residence of Chef Mario Buccellati. Last year, Buccellati kicked off the vegan foodie weekend with a private dinner and this year he returns to start the weekend. The talented chef has created a special Eight Eat Experience with a seven-course meal.
Each course is paired with a selection from Vegan Wines collection, plus bubbles to start the night. Dinner is on the 16th floor rooftop overlooking Manhattan. Please be prepared for wind and dress appropriately. If it rains, we will move inside.
Saturday, Sept. 17
The next morning, we’re meeting in the East Village mid-morning to join Vegan Tours NY.
Now in its third year, Vegan Tours NY is the city’s first and only vegan tour company. The group will go on an exclusive, curated tour of the East Village and Lower East Side. Come hungry — we’ll be eating our way through these neighborhoods.
The afternoon and evening are yours to enjoy. We’ll give you some tips on where to go and what to eat if you need some suggestions.
Sunday, Sept. 18
Our last morning starts with a walking tour of the Lower East Side at 10 a.m. For over two centuries, the Lower East Side has been home to waves of newly-arrived immigrants, creating a cauldron of cultures and innovation. But the historic district is quickly disappearing. In fact, the National Trust of Historic Preservation named the Lower East Side one of the most endangered places in the nation.
On this tour, we’ll explore the streets of the Lower East Side, uncovering remnants of its past hidden in plain sight. You’ll learn how the immigrants lived, worked and worshipped, hear tales of the neighborhood’s colorful denizens, and discover how its cultures and conflicts shaped modern America.
The tour is hosted by Jeff Dobbins, who has led and created tours for Google, the New-York Historical Society, the New York Public Library, Columbia and Johns Hopkins Universities.
We’ll end the tour at Belse, the city’s largest vegan restaurant and brewery, for a buffet-style brunch complete with a cocktail or mocktail.
