This venue is closed.

As the raw-food movement gains momentum, this chainlet now numbers two branches, each serving its signature uncooked versions of pasta, falafel, and pecan pie. If this, or the menu's rampant use of quotation marks around words like shrimp, puts you off, consider this bit of menu propaganda: "There is much evidence that those who eat only raw food live free of illness & disease, their minds become sharp, and negative emotions disappear."


Lunch Combo: Mon-Fri, 11:30-3pm
