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 Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gourmet living cuisine at Matthew Kenney OKC on North Classen Boulevard.
Matthew Kenney OKC (formerly 105 Degrees), featured in Forbes as one of America's Best New Restaurants, follows the principles of living cuisine, never heating food above 118 degrees in order to preserve the ingredients' natural enzymes and minerals. Seasonal menus are filled with dishes crafted with locally sourced ingredients; current selections include re-imagined classics such a BLT salad with coconut bacon ($11) as well as original dishes such as the classic summer tomato lasagna ($13). Wash down your meal with hot tea or elemental coffee ($3+) or a selection from the fresh juice bar.
Framed by 14-foot bamboo ceilings, the airy dining area presents eaters with 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 eaters.

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.
