Food Day at Lento sold out, but you can still get the tasting menu!

We have reached capacity of the area we are holding our Food Day event. There is still plenty of room in the restaurant, however,
and you can still reserve for the Food Day tasting menu. The only difference is that you’ll be seated nearby our event, and might have to get up to view the videos if you want to. The tasting menu will be available all evening.

Food Day is a nationwide celebration of and movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food culminating in a day of action on October 24 every year. Food Day aims to bring us closer to a food system with “real food” that is produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it.
