What You'll Get
The hardest part of adopting a raw food diet is convincing one's mother that it's safe to eat uncooked Skittles. Taste a new kind of rainbow with today's deal: for $25, you get $50 of gourmet living cuisine at 105degrees, on North Classen Circle. 105degrees is open seven days a week for brunch, lunch, and dinner.
Featured in Forbes as one of America's Best New Restaurants, 105degrees employs innovative culinary techniques to craft sustainable fare that preserves natural flavors and nutrients through the principles of living cuisine. The restaurant's name derives from the ideal temperature at which to prepare raw food, wherein ingredients maintain natural enzymes and minerals. A seasonal menu and concerted commitment to local agriculture ensures that diners are filled with food that's so fresh it uses cuss words to describe baby hedgehogs. Current selections include reimagined classics like a BLT salad with coconut bacon ($12), as well as original dishes like heirloom tomato lasagna ($15). Wash down your meal with one of 105degrees smoothies or fresh juices, or take a stab at 105degrees's extensive drinks list, which includes lip-licking libations like the key lime sake-tini, a fruity cocktail of lime, agave, almond milk, and Japanese sake.
Inlaid with natural wood and framed by 14-foot bamboo ceilings, the airy dining area presents eaters a view of the open kitchen, where chefs sculpt mouthwatering masterworks while debating who would win a fight between a mountain goat and a goat mountain. There's also an outdoor patio and communal dining area that lets patrons rub elbows with like-minded eaters. Reservations are recommended but not required.
- Kenney and his teaching staff are helping to educate a new breed of chef, one who can successfully marry the principles of live-food—using raw plant-based ingredients that are organic, seasonal and local when possible—with classic culinary techniques. The result is a cuisine that is as nutritious as it is flavorful, drawing on the flavors of some of the world’s great cultures, from Asia to Mexico. – Jessica Taylor Tudzin, Whole Life magazine
- It was absolutely terrific - the restaurant which is also a raw cooking school had a great vibe....open kitchen, bamboo tables, and tons of lighting. – Paul K., Yelp

About Matthew Kenney OKC
In 2003, author and James Beard–nominated chef Matthew Kenney underwent a culinary awakening after visiting a raw-vegan restaurant. Since then, he’s made the steady transition into vegetarian and vegan cooking, espousing the mental and physical benefits of eating organic. At Matthew Kenney OKC, guests are greeted with a menu of healthy and flavorful dishes such as green curry with kelp noodles and buckwheat pizza layered in housemade cheeses that have won praise from numerous media outlets, including Forbes. Matthew emphasizes foods that make you feel good, even at dessert, which is why his eponymous eatery doesn’t skimp on the sweet stuff, topping mint-chip sundaes with cacao whip and flavoring chocolate tarts with spiced caramel.
The artistry of each dish’s presentation carries over into Matthew Kenney OKC’s sleek space, which consists of four separate dining areas. Parties can relax in a communal space situated in front of the open kitchen, inside an airy dining room beneath 14-foot bamboo ceilings, at the oval juice and wine bar, or on the outdoor patio where fresh air competes with fresh ingredients to win the Freshest Thing Award.
