If you like to eat it raw, you'll cheer the debut of the Raw Kitchen
(509 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 561-820-0144), a raw/vegan/organic eatery that recently opened its doors on Clematis Street.
The creation of partners (and sisters) Gigi and Iris Garcia and chef Brenda Kunkler, the Raw Kitchen presents its uncooked fare in a stylish space marked by cherrywood tables, olive-colored walls, and blown-glass light fixtures. It joins Darbster
as West Palm's second raw/vegan/organic restaurant; a similar café at Soma Center closed with the demise of the "holistic wellness center."
On the menu are "pizzas" with sprouted buckwheat crusts topped with house-made nut cheese, assorted veggies, olives, and basil; a version of pad Thai made with zucchini "noodles" and almond sauce; layered macadamia nut salad with eggplant "pancetta," microgreens, and vegan chipotle "mayo;" and fresh fruit sorbets. There's also a roster of organic beer and wine.
The Raw Kitchen is open daily for lunch and Wednesday through Saturday for dinner.
