NYC RAW FOOD EXCURSION

When? Labor Day Weekend 2012

Where? NYC

What? RAW FOOD EXCURSION!

As you may know, NYC is home to some of the top chefs in the world! Raw Food chefs are no exception to this. New York City is home to some of the best Raw Food Restaurants in the US, so we HAD to take a trip from the DMV to see for ourselves! Check our Visual Story! Click pictures for descriptions.

First Stop

Sun In Bloom

460 Bergen Street

Brooklyn, NY 11217

I must say, this was a damn good salad! Although the entire menu was not Raw, we appreciated the options - PLUS we had to get an appetizer to hold us over until the next place. We will be returning here for sure to explore more options.

On to the next one..

Rawlicious

249 Centre St
(b/t Grand St & Cleveland Pl)
New York, NY 10013


Our experience here was very mediocre. The location in Soho has since closed.

NEXT!

Quintessence

263 East 10th Street
New York, NY 10009 

This place is small and quaint but the food speaks VOLUMES! This was by far the best Raw cuisine we had in the city. If you are ever in town, check them out!

We went for their Sunday Brunch and everything we tried was phenomenal!!

Last but not least,

One Lucky Duck
 125 East 17th Street
New York, NY 10003

This place is the carryout side of Pure Food and Wine, an expensive raw eatery. We just stopped in for smoothies and desserts.
