Dine on a inventive raw vegan menu (nothing is heated above 118 degrees to preserve vitamins, minerals, and enzymes) under the stars in one of Manhattan's most secluded, plush backyard gardens.
What to order: Order the popular Zucchini and Heirloom Tomato Lasagna, made with basil pistachio pesto, sun-dried tomato marinara, and macadamia pumpkin seed ricotta. And finish your meal with a creamy Mint Sundae (pictured), made with organic, raw coconut, cashew, and agave nectar—so good even non-vegans love it.
