1730 Shattuck Ave.
Omnivores stepping into this heavily-bricked living-foods restaurant may initially chafe at the idea of the all-vegan raw foods selections with names like “I Am Treasured,” “I Am Youthful” and “I Am Adoring.” But a mouthful of appetizer, soup, salad, daily special, smoothie, milkshake, nut milk, organic tea and coffee, juice, elixirs, sweets or dessert quickly wins them over. By the end of the meal, eaters happily chat with the wait staff and swoon over the question of the day (which was “What are you grateful for?” on our visit). It’s affirming when you order: “I Am Assured” brought a black cherry soda that was actually a shot of Body Balance (“a whole food sea vegetable and mineral supplement”), apple juice and sparking water; and “I Am Effervescent” drew the house ginger ale of apple juice, ginger and sparking water. Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. (Reservations taken for 6 or more)
