Juliano's RAW is a great place to start. You'll probably hit Santa Monica so check that out.
Jade Cafe is another great spot. It's ethnic fusion (thai- mexicano - italiano) and it's all raw too. It's on Griffith Park Blvd in Silver Lake which is a cool arty area.
It being L.A. you can eat raw and order raw (even if it's not on the menu) and no one even looks at you funny.
There are juice bars amok and fresh produce everywhere so you'll never go hungry...have fun! It's Cherry season here too. YUM!!
Where are you visitng L.A. from?

I can't speak from personal experience, but my best friend lives there. He goes to Leaf Cuisine every night because it's the most affordable, simple, good raw food. I'm not a big fan of the million and one Juliano combinations, but some people are really into it so definitely worth checking out. He likes Jade Cafe as well. Also at Wild Oats you can get an all green organic juice for some lovely low price.. i think maybe $4.
Enjoy your trip!!!

I also am not a fan of Juliano's as it's expensive and not vegan. He uses honey in a lot of stuff.
I go to Rawvolution in Santa Monica and Taste of the Goddess in West Hollywood.
I've heard Leaf Cuisine is really and I hope to go there this weekend.

Au Lac in Fountain Vally and Jade. I'd pass on Julianos personally.

i also like leaf.
juliano's is cool for the experience - i think he is an amazing chef, but it is expensive. i think there is the santa monica farmers market there on saturday -- that is awesome!

I recommend the two places in Santa Monica. But just like someone else posted ... a lot of times you can order raw in many restaurants. I checked out many restaurants on the internet first (if they had menus available) I was in CA for 3 1/2 weeks (just returned recently)... I even went to grocery store because it was cheaper than the farmer's markets (one place I went charged $1 per apple and it wasn't even organic) Have fun :)

Thank you all so much! I live in Chicago.

Ah... you must check out Au Lac in Fountain Vally. Great tasting food.
Try hooking up with RawTruth, she could tell you if there's any special events in the raw resturants going on. She's great. :D
Another place is http://www.rawvolution.com/store.html

If it were me, I would go to Juliano's just to say I did, because I love his book, and Au Lac, because Alissa has said good things about it.
