Any Raw Restaurants in FL
Does anyone know if there is a raw restaurant in South Florida?
Specifically Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale or Miami?
Thanks. :) :)
Not stictly raw anymore, though some regular restaurants are good at creating something yummy. Went to Blue Moon Fish Co. & had an amazing meal & the best-tasting berries ever. The server was so cool in that he knew exactly what raw meant & it was his idea what I ate. There use to be Nature Boy who had amazing food, but they closed. Julio's in Miami has some raw:
That's a great suggestion. After research, found a few more:
Dining in the Raw
800 Olivia St.
Key West, FL 33040
Grass Root Organic Restaurant
2702 N Florida Ave
Tampa Bay, FL 33602
Rhythm N Roots
111 North M Street
Lake Worth, FL 33460
1431 North Federal
1602 NE Miami Gardens Dr
North Miami (Sky Lakes Mall)
Sunshine & AJ's, Food Without Fire
747 4th Street
Miami Beach, FL 33139
Tree of Zion
2426 NE 2nd Ave.
Miami, FL 33137
By the way, do you know of any raw meetings or get togethers in Ft Laud?
PS I miss the gilmore girls!!!
I love that show so much that I've been saving the very last episode.
Raw Meetup-no events scheduled now though as things tend to stop during the summer.:
and vegan one:
Hey, we can meet & do our own group. :) Except there's no raw restaurants. There's always Whole Foods. Or Sweet Tomatoes or some other place.
Oops, I didn't see your listing. Most of those are either far away or don't exist anymore. Sublime barely has anything raw anymore.
Bummer. I was so excited when I saw the list. Doh!
That would be great to meet up or start a group.
PS. I'm going to take the chef course on Aug 5th with Leah in Hollywood, FL. Have you done this already?
PS. Thank goodness for reruns! I was so bummed about the cancellation, then veronika mars...why bother turning on the tube now...
My bf I were in Florida in February and we pretty much hit almost EVERY raw place we could find. We didn't go to Sublime - There didn't look to be any raw on the online menu. I think it just vegetarian and vegan now.

Sunshine and AJ's Food without Fire is gone. At least, my bf and I could not find it. We call the number and asked if they had any raw food and the guy didn't know what we were talking about! I think it is a different kind of restaurant now.
Tree of Zion we drove around to try and find it but got lost and gave up - we didn't have the number with us. I think it might still exist though - I think it might be open weird hours though.
Rhythm n Roots is also closed as far as I know. It was just a juice bar.
GrassRoots Organic Restaurant is very nice! They serve raw and vegan cooked. We got there at the last minute just as they were closing but they made use something to go!
Here are some more places we went too that were not mentioned:
The Present Moment Cafe in St. Augustine, Fl
Oh, this is so good! We got free cacao cake because it was someone birthday.
Raw Food Underground in Jupiter, Fl
Unfortunately, it looks like they are closed for summer! But they had the best raw burrito I have ever had - the raw tortilla shell wrap tasted just like a cooked one. It was like I wasn't even eating a raw burrito! The chef wouldn't tell us what was in it! She studied at Hippocrates. When they open again, make sure you get the coconut cream or key lime pie - they were to DIE for!
A must-do in Florida is definatley :
Glaser Organic Farms Farmers Market!
The market is open every Saturday on the SW corner of Grand & Margaret
Coconut Grove in Miami, FL
This a raw foodists dream farmers market. SO much organic produce (even durians!) and raw dehydrated crackers and breads. It was unbelievable!
A few other places I would recommend if you are headed down towards the Keys are:
Robert is Here Fruit Stand
Lots of organic produce - We got some free mangos from Robert himself.
Also, if you have time I highly recommend the Fruit and Spice Park In Homestead, Fl
Take the tour and the tour guide will pick stuff of the tree for you to try - lots of exotic tropical fruits. Plus you can eat anything that has already fallen off the tree. We had maybe six completley ripe starfruit - nothing like a ripe starfruit!
In the Keys, we got some smoothies at this place:
It is a natural foods grocery. It has a little cafe inside. We got some vegan food. The raw stuff is mostly the smoothies and fresh juices.
No, I haven't taken the course. Are you doing it for business or pleasure?
Feel free to e-mail me since we're the only ones talking on this thread. ;)
Queenfluff , we posted at the same time. Glaser's Market is great. If it were closer, I'd go all the time. The others are hours away from here.
Thanks for the info!

Queen...you rock! Thanks for the update & great suggestions.
MMMMMMMM. Looks like we have some exploring to do!

WOW!!! Thanks for all the info. I live in Sarasota, just moved here, and when I travel around will defiantly take your list with me. I've been to Grass Roots and think it's good and a great atmosphere.
I am the assistant organizer for the Raw Sarasota meetup group http://rawfood.meetup.com/11/. Check out that website for great resources.
Also, on Friday's at Simon's Coffee House in Sarasota there is raw food Friday. It is AMAZING. Very gourmet, probably some of the best raw restaurant food I've had.

Your welcome everyone!
Yeah, my bf and I went out of our way (literally drove for a few extra hours out of our way) just to check out the raw places while we were in Florida.
They were ALL worth it! :)
