Dirt Candy, the award-winning vegetable restaurant from NYC is taking over the Alamo Drafthouse for one night only. Creator of North America’s only graphic novel cookbook and the first vegetarian chef to take on Iron Chef America, Amanda Cohen has seized control of the Drafthouse Mothership and will use her power for ridiculosity, serving a four-course vegetarian dinner that includes Jalapeno Hush Puppies with Maple Butter ((which has been called culinary crack), Smoked Cauliflower & Waffles and Portobello Mousse (among other dishes), all paired with drinks selected by Alamo Beverage Director Bill Norris.
