The Long Table Dinner series was created by Sean Heather the owner of the Irish Heather, Sean had what has turned out to be a truly great idea. This idea has turned into one of the most successful dinner events in Vancouver in quite sometime and the series has been extended well into the fall.
The evening began with everyone meeting at Shabeen (the Whisky House in the rear of the restaurant), when the bell rang you knew it was time to find your seats at the 40 foot wooden communal table in the next room. From their Chef Lee Humphries came out and introduced the evening and the food that we were about to eat, then Dr. Michael Kiraly spoke about Steam Whistle Beer which was the beverage paired with the meal.
The night I visited I had the Beef Stroganoff With Sour Cream And House Made Pasta with a Bottle Of Steam Whistle Pilsner (this meal was $12).
I also shared a couple of their desserts and enjoyed the Honey Lemon Crème Brulee the best.
They always have a vegetarian option available to those folks who prefer it and Coca-Cola are supplying a Coke, Sprite or Diet Coke, in the classic bottle, for anybody who desires a non-alcoholic choice.
If you are interested in attending one or more of their future dinners, make sure that you make a reservation well in advance, you can see the line-up here http://ltsmenu.blogspot.com/
