Noriyuki Sugie & The Skinny Bitch Go Vegan at Breadbar

As Breadbar has been enjoying an infinite run of hosting nighttime, culinary one-off successes opposite their daytime operating hours – it was only a matter of time before Chef Noriyuki Sugie (of Tetsuya, Sydney and Asiate, NYC fame) had occasion to come back from his Crudo Bar stint. This time it’ll be as business consultant in partnership with the launch of online “healthful chick lit” site, Healthy Bitch Daily. Kim Barnouin, co-author of The Skinny Bitch, collaborated with Chef Nori for a very special menu that should pique your palette, regardless the orientation of ye –vore. Take a look:

Watermelon Gazpacho, Tapioca Pearl

Broccolini Bruschetta, Kimchi

Smoky Eggplant Caviar, Hummus

Seaweed Salad, Ginger, Scallion-Marinated Tofu, White Sesame Vinaigrette

Kabocha Squash Soup, Asian Pear, Fried Chickpea, Thai Basil Pesto

Sweet Potato Okura, Red Curry Quinoa, Soy Tzatziki

Mole Chocolate Risotto, Avocado Chocolate Mousse

The first hour of the night (from 6 – 7 PM), Kim will give a lecture and sign copies of her book. The rest of the program (7 – 10 PM) is dedicated to serving all 7, 100%-vegan courses on the above menu in a bento-style dinner (Look, ma! No sharing!) for only $30 per person. Tax and gratuity is not included so be sure to tip accordingly. This could very well be genius on the cheap. Since this is a one night-only deal, be sure to make your reservation soon.

P.S. – You know, I’m really disappointed I can’t go to this since I’ll be in New York. Please report back – I’m anxious to hear how it went.
