Get a taste of Wicked. Every month, we serve an exclusive Supper Club dinner. It’s more than an evening of fine dining. These dinners also bring together the community while showcasing incredible plant-based cuisine. Each month’s menu features a special theme inspired by Chef Chad’s travels around the world. We begin with cocktails and canapés before seating for several dinner courses. In case that wasn’t enough, guests are always treated to an off-menu surprise or two. For an extra-special VIP experience, book the 7-seat Chef’s Table for an up-close view of all the action in the kitchen.
