I went to this restaurant this week for my birthday and I had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is delightful with beautiful and healthy orchids on every table and all along the counter and there are lots of vine plants hanging from the ceiling. I absolutely loved my meal and I wish the recopy for the grilled cheese sandwich was in Juliano’s cookbook (he is a very nice man by the way, very kind to my friends and I). The food is not typical raw food, it is definitely gourmet style. While I don’t have any problem spending money on fancy food, I don’t like that this food is so inaccessible to many people because of the prices. Raw food probably shouldn’t be much more elitist (forgive the term) that it already is. But I do have to say that this upper-middleclass citizen enjoyed her meal, even with the pangs of guilt, and will probably return. I guess I accept that even raw foods restaurants can have that gourmet culture. Everything seemed perfect to me (well except that I don’t eat honey and it was in a lot of things) but I can afford it.
The food is excellent with a sense of style and a very new approach to cuisine. It is a very calming and relaxed environment. But it is a place that is good to go to if you are not the one paying because it is a bit pricey. However, although the portions appear small, they are very substantial and filling! (And of course it is not cheap because the preparation of the cuisine is quite labor intensive)
