Owned by authors and raw-food gurus Janabai and Matt Amdsen, Euphoria Loves Rawvolution caters to the culinary needs of the health-conscious with sustainable raw, organic, local, vegan, and seasonal cuisine. Step into the café, and sample a menu of fare that promotes well-being, pleases persnickety taste buds, and has won over such celebrity clients as Cher, Alicia Silverstone, and Susan Sarandon. Starters such as curried coconut jerky with cashew mayo ($6) provide an artfully unique blend of tastes, like Picasso at a backyard barbecue. Traditional offerings, including the no-bean hummus platter ($11), provide the comforts of a classic appetizer. Stacked sandwiches include the Big Matt with cheese, a nut-veggie patty topped with sunflower-seed cheese, handmade ketchup, and flavorfully familiar fixings that ensure gullible tongues are satisfied while health-conscious consciences are soothed ($11). Succulent sushi options snatch roll supremacy from bread via concoctions such as the Californication roll, a cut nori cylinder chock full of pine nuts, avocado, and hemp-seed sushi rice ($11). The cafe is open from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily, with dinner beginning at 5 p.m.
For in-home diners and aspiring agoraphobes, Rawvolution’s The Box delivery system is an ideal method for enjoying organic, low-calorie meals. For your week of globe-loving delicacies, Matt Amsden creates two slurpable soups, four entrees, and four scintillating sides, along with two delicious desserts and a delivery box that plants trees in the middle of the night. Local delivery can be scheduled by phone for arrival between 6:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Monday evenings, or food may be picked up at Rawvolution headquarters on Monday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
