I visited with my wife in August '10, and we both agreed that this was some of the best raw food we'd ever had. It was elegantly prepared and presented and a perfect portion size. Such a unique array of tastes, especially the desserts.

My only gripe is that I wish it had been warmer so that we could have eaten outside because there was an unpleasant odor of garbage lingering inside. Also it's very small, so unless you are the only patrons as we were, it could feel very cramped.

This is a hard restaurant to find in the city, but it's definitely a must to try! I went to this restaurant with my parents, and they were amazed with the unique display and preparation of the delicious food. We shared all of the orders, which is definitely the best way to eat at this restaurant. There are so many great choices, so sharing gives you the ability to try some of each. I would recommend the tiny avocado sandwiches, celery root salad, Korean Chilean zucchini dish, and the lavender/pomegranate cheesecake. The waitress was extremely nice, and was willing and able to answer several of our questions regarding the special soul food ingredients. The sauces that are mixed into the food are unbelievable. The cashew sauce is amazing! Enjoy ALIVE!!
