A UNIQUE CULINARY & CANNABIS EXPERIENCE
Seasonal cuisine paired with artisanal cannabis.
Come discover a curated cannabis & culinary event series with open, like-minded lovers of both.
We are a monthly underground pop-up restaurant that has been running since 2015. Our events offer infused hors d’ouevres with a gourmet non-psychoactive seasonal coursed meal, and paired with intermezzos of cannabis flower, edibles and extracts from California’s finest purveyors.
Throughout our events, you will hear from both the chef and the cannabis producers on the passion and process that went into everything you try. Learn More.

Chef Coreen Carroll was named one of America’s top 10 cannabis chefs by SF Chronicle’s Green State.
“Among Carroll’s favorite ingredients to cook with are cannabis leaf and cannabis bud that she does not decarboxylate so the cannabinoid THCA stays in its non-psychoactive form and does not turn into high-inducing THC. She mixes chopped leaf into a pâte à choux batter that she boils to make gnocchi and then fries non-decarboxylated bud in pancetta fat and tosses both with parmesan.”
“Coreen and Ryan were fantastic hosts! They created a lively, inviting atmosphere. The food was delicious, the presentation was flawless, and the personal stories behind the recipes brought them to life. Thanks for the delicious dinner!”
-Rebecca, 2-time attendee
Begins with a welcome reception where you enjoy a mimosa bar and infused hors d’oeuvres as well as get a chance to meet the producers that are providing the afternoon’s cannabis. We will then sit down for four courses of brunch fare, paired with intermezzos of cannabis flower tastings.
Cocktail party style events with a social vibe. Experience passed, infused hors d’oeuvres from the kitchen and a decadent, buffet-style food spread. Throughout, you will be guided along a curated tasting of flower, edibles and concentrates from local purveyors.
Rotating themes and ever-evolving menus. Our flagship event is uniquely curated to ensure that patrons receive a unique experience every time they return. A welcome reception is followed by a communal style seating of a 4-course menu, paired with local cannabis flower.
Every event features mildly cannabis-infused hors d’oeuvres and mocktails. Each guest will walk out with a gift bag from our sponsors. Beer and wine are available at most events.
We are in compliance with CA Food Safety Rules. You must be 21+ years-old to attend. All documents are checked before entering.
“We love bringing people together around our joy for food and cannabis. We always feel like we open up our homes to our friends.”
