(above and below) The Long Table dinner series at the Irish Heather - photos taken on Thanksgiving 2013 by Geoff Peters.
My friend Alvenh and I attended the Long Table Series dinner at the Irish Heather in the Gastown neighborhood of Vancouver BC Canada for their Thanksgiving dinner.
What is the Long Table Dinner? It’s a communal, affordable, social, and fun dining experience at a long table that spans nearly the entire restaurant. The table can accommodate around 100 people. From their website:
The Long Table Series (LTS) is an intimate gathering of friends, old and new, along our 40 foot communal table. Like coming home to “Sunday Dinner,” but without the clean up.
Hearty home-cooked meals, good people, and great value $16 incl. artisan beer / beverage. Created as an alternative dining experience for folk when the recession was biting hard, the LTS has endured because it provides a unique experience at a great price.
Reservations for this dinner are made over email through their website. The food is home-cooked style and features a large plate and a beverage. If you are vegetarian, vegan, or prefer not to drink alcohol, the restaurant has options available for you.
The Long Table Series happens every week, on Sunday and Monday evenings.
This is what is currently offered: a Sunday Roast and a Meatless Monday feature:
The Sunday Roast remains unchanged but the price drops to an unbelieveble $16 plus tax & service for Roast Beef, Yorkshire Pudding, Roast Potatoes and Gravy plus a pint of Kronenberg.
On Monday we are adopting MEATLESS Mondays. This is a very popular style of event in New York and basicially features a meal totally devoid of meat. We have chosen a meal that is vegan, vegetarian and pleasing to those who aren’t of that life choice. If you are a meat eater, it really doesn’t hurt to skip meat every once and a while, in fact it is recommended. On Meatless Mondays, for $16 plus tax and service, we’ll make it easy for you and our source we’ll throw in a beer.
