Although each of their dishes is made without gluten, animal products, or refined sugar, Green Wave Cafe proves that raw, vegan food can tempt palates. The eatery earned laurels in 2010 for being the Best Raw Food Restaurant according to the New Times Broward-Palm Beach for flavorful dishes "that actually satisfy." Among such edibles is a vegan chocolate ice cream that tastes close to "the real thing."
All dishes are made onsite daily, and the only cooked dish on the menu is the soup of the day. The hummus sandwich is made from chick peas sprouted in pure ionized water. The lettuce taco boats, which the staff calls one of its most popular dishes, include with housemade guacamole and vegan pâté rich with Mexican seasoning. Raw-food enthusiasts can also fill their baskets at the Monday farmers' market or earn raw-food certification with cooking classes.

A former linebacker and defensive end, Kim “Bo” Bokamper spent his entire 10-year career with the Miami Dolphins, helping propel them to two championship games. But just because he made his name on the gridiron doesn’t mean his restaurant limits itself to football. Far from it, in fact. Its more than 70 plasma-screen TVs broadcast everything from hockey and basketball to UFC and boxing, the sport where athletes race to pack their belongings.
Those televisions speckle Bokampers' high-ceilinged dining room, where craft beers complement a menu of classic pub food. Flatbreads crowned with marinated sirloin and balsamic sauce give way to “bostrami” sliders, a medley of pastrami, creole mustard, and Russian slaw. And, for a true challenge, The Beast awaits. The signature burger that Naples Daily News calls “the size of a small birthday cake” contains more than 3 pounds of wagyu and Angus beef, applewood-smoked bacon, four slices of cheese, four fried eggs, and fries. If diners finish it within an hour, The Beast is on the house.
OneBurger's name is a bit of a misnomer. The restaurant in fact serves fully 30 different burgers, which founder Daniel Guiteras has divided into four categories: beef, seafood, vegetarian, and chicken/turkey.
With its beef entrees, OneBurger's culinary team puts its stamp on classic recipes, cooking up everything from bacon cheddar burgers with worcestershire spread to Cuban-style burgers topped with housemade shoestring fries. Cooks get even more creative with the other burger groups, smothering chicken burgers with marsala wine sauce or treating vegetarians to housemade, 12-ingredient veggie patties.
Besides burgers, OneBurger specializes in housemade desserts and four types of milkshake. The gourmet grilling takes place inside OneBurger's spacious storefront, whose all-black exterior gives way to an all-white interior lined with black-and-white photographs.
